PLUS POSITIVE WAS SELECTED TO JOIN THE MACY’S SHOP FOR A CAUSE CHARITY CHALLENGE ON CROWDRISE
Help PLUS+ win $100,000 by donating to its CrowdRise campaign
Atlanta, July 21, 2017 — PLUS Positive has joined the Macy’s Shop For A Cause Charity Challenge, a fundraising competition on CrowdRise, the largest crowdfunding platform for good. Participating charities across the country will compete for up to $300,000 in prize money. PLUS Positive hopes to raise money to support the See Positive Teen Self Esteem Program.
Over 70% of girls age 15 to 17 avoid normal daily activities, such as attending school, when they feel bad about their looks. 75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. Our See Positive Teen Self Esteem program aims to help the youth see the positive within themselves and their future, by hosting self esteem workshops in high schools, foster care homes, group homes, and youth groups across the metro Atlanta area. Since its inception, we have grown from an average of 75 teens to serving over 125 under-privileged children and their parents each year. We need your help in continuing our service and expanding into youth facilities across Georgia.
“Our Teen Self Esteem Program is fun, interactive, and really gets to the heart of how teens form low self esteem” said Nicki Lynch founder of PLUS+. “We then empower them to see their own value and self worth”
The Macy’s Shop For A Cause Charity Challenge launched on CrowdRise on July 11th at 12pm ET and runs through August 9th at 1:59:59pm ET. The charity that raises the most online during the Challenge wins $100,000; second place wins $50,000, third place wins $25,000, fourth place wins $15,000, and fifth place wins $10,000.
