At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. Will you support
HIPPY USA on this
Global Day of Generosity?
Hey, can we visit with you for a couple of minutes?
We know that times are tough. However, there are still reasons to smile because your contributions help HIPPY USA support our work of 120 independent affiliates across the nation that inspire more than 14,000 great people like Maria and Ricardo, her three-year-old grandson of Milwaukee.
Maria first learned about HIPPY at an annual community block party and thought it was the ideal opportunity for Ricardo to develop a love of reading. Maria's intuition was on target. Since becoming a part of our affiliate COA Youth and Family Centers a year ago, Ricardo has not only excelled in reading, but he is also able to identify animals, colors, shapes, count, and has developed a love of science.
Maria and Ricardo's partnership with HIPPY is one of the tens of thousands of impactful stories that we love to share as we help our parents make their young one(s) school-ready and instill a passion for lifelong learning. This has been our mission for 30 plus years, mainly assisting under-served families and communities.
Like most organizations, HIPPY has responded to the uncertainty of this evolving pandemic to ensure that we quickly meet the collective and unique needs of our HIPPY affiliates. Over 10,000 compassionate employees comprise our network and mutually carry out our mission of teaching parents and caregivers to become the first and most important teacher for the preschooler in their care.
Also, with pride amid COVID-19, we recognize that many of our sites continue their roles or have just become leaders in their communities by ensuring that their constituents have access to basic needs by providing food, clothing, information about shelters, health services, mainstream benefits, and more.
Our website tells our history, what we do and the powerful impact it makes and we demonstrate this through thorough research. But for now, you can help us with a donation that can have an immediate effect on our most urgent short term needs that can pay long-term dividends in response to COVID . These include:
Further enhancing and launching innovative ways of communications between our home visitors and families. Oftentimes, our home visitors serve as lifelines for parents or caregivers who may feel alone, isolated, especially now.
Providing our home visitors with the technology they require to reach our families. Our home visitors often pay out of their own pockets, use their own personal devices and connectivity to do their jobs.
Having identified those as our highest priorities, will you Give Now and help us help our field and families as we continue to lay the foundation for a bright educational future for HIPPY kids around the country?
