Dear Friends,

I am honored and humbled to be an Honorary Ambassador for Mentor Foundation USA.
I am so proud to support an organization that has similar beliefs and priorities - An organization who consistently strives to make a meaningful impact. Their passion and dedication to bettering our community is undeniable and their organization as a whole radiates a sense of morality which is uniquely theirs. I'm proud and honored to stand beside Mentor Foundation USA, an organization that's adding so much value by empowering the youth of the world.

Mentor Foundation USA's work is critical in addressing one of the most difficult challenges we face as a society, substance use. What makes this undertaking so daunting is the issue itself needs to be addressed at both an individual level as well as macro level. Substance use does not discriminate by race, socio-economic status, or geography, it's a pressing concern for all youth everywhere. By supporting Mentor Foundation's work, individuals can help bring an end to adolescent substance use by supporting programs that provide support, guidance as well as education to youth across the globe.

Mentor Foundation USA is a member affiliate of Mentor International, which was founded in 1994 by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and the World Health Organization, and is the largest network of its kind for evidence based programs that prevent drug abuse among youth.

Tom Werner for Mentor Foundation USA
Hi Friends,

Mentor Foundation USA strives to create bright futures for youth through empowerment, career mentoring, and peer-to-peer programs to promote health & well-being. As you might be aware, the drug abuse problem in the United States has reached epidemic proportions and is getting worse every year. More than 70,000 people have died from drug overdoses each year over the past several years. The 70,000 overdose deaths are more, in one year than U.S. military losses in the entire 10 year Vietnam War (60,000) and, more than the sum of automobile accidents and murders combined in one year.

Mentor International, together with Mentor Foundation USA and the other Mentor organizations around the world, is the leading international not-for-profit network empowering youth and preventing substance abuse. H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden established Mentor International in 1994 in collaboration with The World Health Organization. Since then, the organization has grown to provide support to youth in over 80 countries reaching more than 6 million children.

I'm asking for donations this giving day to continue our mission to support our youth.

Michaela Pratt for Mentor Foundation USA
The mission of Mentor is something near and dear to my heart. As many of you know, my father was an addict which had a huge impact on my family. I now know from the letters he left behind ​and through his many attempts towards recovery that his addiction started when he was a teenager. It is well known that 90% of alcohol and drug problems begin during teenage years, and youth who don't use alcohol or drugs before the age of 21 are unlikely to start drug use after that age. I believe we all share a responsibility to protect our young people.

For the next 24 hours​, I am asking my friends to come together to help us create brighter futures for our youth. Please help us reach our goal of $25,000 so we can reach more young people in need. Today, we are facing the greatest drug epidemic in U.S. history, which is devastating families across our nation. Mentor works with innovative, evidence-based programs to prevent youth substance use and promote health and well-being. Together, we can create brighter futures for our youth.

Please consider making a $24 donation or any amount you can spare to support our work.

Warmly,
Michaela

Dynamo Technologies for Mentor Foundation USA
Good Afternoon Team Dynamo,

I would like to take a moment to discuss an important issue with you: substance abuse.

Substance abuse is a growing epidemic, inflicting harm upon our local communities, families, and individuals year after year. Youth are especially vulnerable to developing substance abuse disorders, which have life-altering consequences. Data shows that youth who do not partake in alcohol, nicotine, or marijuana use before the age of 21, is unlikely to start drug use thereafter. Everyone knows someone who has been personally affected by substance abuse, which is why Dynamo is honored to support Mentor Foundation USA.

Mentor Foundation USA is a local 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization working to empower youth to live healthy and productive lives, free of substance use. I know the Mentor Foundation USA team personally and can attest to the impact they are having on our local community. Through their affiliation with Mentor International, the largest adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention and Education non-profit in the world, they are also affecting positive change globally.

Kindly considering supporting the Mentor Foundation's twenty-four-hour fundraising initiative. All funds raised will directly support youth education, empowerment, and treatment efforts. The effects will be immediate, long-lasting, and transformational for our local communities.

Feel free to contact me directly should you have any questions.

Thank you in advance!

Cheers,
Vick
