Why 2019 Is the Year to Make a Difference


Last year is finally behind us, and though you’re probably still getting used to writing the date, 2019 is officially here. Foster care volunteer opportunities are awaiting. There’s a lot you can do to make a difference in the next 365 days, and here’s why:

2019 is the year of crushing goals.

Whether you’re following through on your resolutions, starting a charity fundraiser, or going above and beyond at work, you’ve got a lot of goals to hit this year. Even the biggest dreams are possible, and 2019 is the perfect time to start working towards them. First, break down goals into smaller tasks and plan out reasonable timelines and to-do lists. Next, communicate your goals to other people so they can help hold you accountable. Finally, stay consistent with your plans! Keep up the hard work and you’ll hit your goals in no time. Foster Love - Together We Rise can help you reach fundraising goals with a fundraiser page, and we’ll even give you ideas for how to get started!

2019 is the year of working together.

As companies are relying more on teams than individuals, they’re also focusing on team-building activities and improving employee morale. Foster Love - Together We Rise offers four different programs that help bring teams together: Sweet Cases, Birthday Boxes, Bike Builds , and Build-a-Boards. With each of our team-building activities, you can have fun, positively impact the world, and genuinely connect with your coworkers. We firmly believe in the power of teamwork; that’s why our nonprofit is named TOGETHER We Rise!

2019 is the year of giving back.

There are over 400,000 children currently in foster care, and this number is expected to grow in 2019. 20% of these children will become homeless once they age out of the system. There is no better time than now to give back and improve these kids’ lives for the future. We hope to provide over 100,000 kids with Sweet Cases in 2019, but we can’t do it without your help.

Please consider foster care volunteer opportunities to help out the youth in your community, or visit us at our two locations, Brea, CA and Austin, TX. To learn more about how to make a difference with us, visit https://www.togetherwerise.org/volunteer-opportunities/
