I am currently interning for a wonderful non-profit organization, Breathe CA, that focuses on lung health and clean air through grassroots, advocacy, and direct services. During my short time here, I have learned the impact that asthma education and tobacco cessation classes have on our community. Did you know California is home to 6 of the top 10 polluted cities in America? Through supporting Breathe CA, you will help strive towards gaining a better quality of life for you and your family.
So, how can you help? Breathe CA is holding their annual Bike 4 Breath charity ride, which is their largest event on Saturday, July 11th, 2015 (that's TOMORROW!) at Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton.
I've set a personal fundraising goal of just $250 and will need your help and support to get there! 100% of every dollar I raise will help our local communities by supporting lung disease research, outreach and education, smoking cessation and clean air advocacy. Your support will make a difference to the lives of those who suffer from poor lung health.
You can make a secure online donation on this page. Alternatively, you can write a check (payable to Breathe California with my name written in the NOTES section) and mail it to:
Attn: Bike 4 Breath
2171 Junipero Serra Blvd., Suite #720
Daly City, CA 94014
Together we can reduce air pollution, tobacco use (especially among teens!), and deaths from lung diseases such as asthma, COPD and cancer.
You may also help support Breathe CA in other ways such as participating in the bike ride by joining a team or creating your own team online. If you are interested in volunteering with me, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support!
