Roses are red, violets are blue We are so grateful for partners like you!
Valentine's Day is here! It's the holiday where we give appreciation to those we admire. We're all looking for more human connection and closeness this year, and what better way to do so safely than sending a #virutalhug! If you're searching for ways to share the love with community-based organizations like ours, consider sending a #virtualhug to Collective Impact. Here are some ideas for how to pull Cupid's virtual-arrow without spending a lot of time or money!
1. Support our Summer Fun!
When you think of your Summer Camp experience, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? Maybe it's spending time with life-long friends, being outdoors, playing sports, doing science experiments, performing in a talent show, making arts and crafts, or cuddling up with a good book. These are all of the things we bring to our youth every summer. Before COVID-19, we took over 2,000 youth across different parks and places in the Bay Area. We suspect that our program will still be required to stay local this summer, so we've come up with creative ways to bring field trips to them! We hope you'll take a look at our Amazon Wishlist and consider sending a #virtualhug to our youth in the form of an activity or decoration so they can have a memorable summer!

3. Spread the word

4. Set up a monthly donation
You don't have to give a lot of money to make a big difference. $10 can provide one snack to 10 of our after-school participants. If one of your New Year's Resolutions was to start cooking at home more often, consider donating a portion of that saved take-out bill by using our GiveLively donation page to make a monthly donation.
