Greco's Little Give Project
June 25, 2011 - July 25, 2011
New York — The Semper Fi Fund would like to congratulate three young Americans, Ryan, Keith and Madison, who raised $750 for the Semper Fi Fund through a special project at their school in New York. These three students are very blessed to have a wonderful teacher who recently taught a very important lesson on giving.
Ms. Greco decided to challenge her students with a project called, "Greco’s Little Give." She donated $1,500 on her own money and asked the students to research a charity they felt was the most deserving of this generous donation. Six groups of students and their parents helped picked the charities and the community voted. The Semper Fi Fund was honored to learn we were one of the six finalists! We wished the students well and then we received word there was a tie with another charity and the Semper Fi Fund and each charity would received $750!! We are so proud of all the students and glad there is a Ms. Greco in this world who just taught her class one of the most beautiful lessons in life.
Now, we would like to challenge others to help match the original $1,500 and help continue Ryan, Keith and Madison’s "Greco’s Little Give" Project.
When a younger generation is reaching out to help others, it makes us all proud to be American. Please help these young Americans, but matching or better yet doubling the $1,500!!
If you donate online, please enter under Comments, "Greco’s Little Give" or if you phone or send a check, please note, "Greco’s Little Give" so we can keep track for special challenge!
