Only 50% of foster youth graduate from high school. Those that receive their diploma faced an uphill battle with frequent school changes, lack of access to technology and essential items, plus needing to overcome twice the emotional problems as their peers. Graduation also marks another transition for foster youth, as they leave for college or to live on their own with little to no safety net or support system.
We are encouraging individuals, companies or groups to help acknowledge this graduation achievement. Your donation will go towards sending cards of congratulations with gift cards included to celebrate their hard work and help them as they transition into living on their own.
Help us show foster teens graduating this spring that we are rooting them on!
About Ticket to Dream:
At the Ticket to Dream Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we are dedicated to creating hope and opportunity for foster children across the nation, so they can just be kids. To us, hope starts with having shoes and clothing that fit, lifting their self-esteem. School supplies and access to computers so they have the tools they need to succeed in school. Getting to experience the joy of a gift under the tree, a trip to the zoo or joining a sports team. It's ensuring they have vital services and support that allow them to heal and grow to reach their full potential. We want foster children across the country to thrive, but we can't do it alone – we need your help.
