June 30th would have been Jesse’s 15th birthday, so we are putting one of the last messages that he left for his brother JT — “Have a lot of Fun” — into practice with a month of fun events, activities, and experiences for all ages.
The Month of Fun offers a variety of virtual fundraising events in support of the Choose Love Movement’s next generation social and emotional learning programs and resources that are available at no cost to everyone.
There’s something for everyone. Get your groove on with dance lessons from salsa to tap. Time to connect with your inner child from tai chi to yoga to meditation, and more. The fundraiser will culminate on the 30th with a virtual birthday bash featuring a musical extravaganza.
Throughout the month, learn about how the Choose Love Formula can be used daily to benefit your life and create safe and loving communities. Learn skills and tools to help children and adults thrive and survive in our current world, while also having a lot of fun.
“This is such a special way to celebrate Jesse’s birthday. He was such a happy, active little boy and I know he would want all of us to come together and have a lot of fun. It will also be filled with a lot of nurturing healing love — there’s nothing better than that!” says Scarlett Lewis, Jesse’s mom and founder of the Choose Love Movement.
A Silent Online Auction will feature a variety of items, including a Choose Love Gift Basket, a Wellness Workshop, a foursome golf outing, an original painting, and more!
Registration is free but donations are encouraged. Donations can be made online or by texting FUN2021 to 91999. The Choose Love Programs reach two million children in 10,000 schools worldwide. Every dollar of your contribution covers the social emotional learning needs of one additional student for a whole year. Your silent auction bid may change a child’s life, a community, and our world for the better.
