We are thrilled to share with you that Gems Uncovered has been selected to participate once again in the Long Beach Gives city wide event on September 21! The goals of Long Beach Gives are to raise awareness about nonprofits and the critical role they play in our communities and to inspire people to give generously to nonprofits, creating a strong community where everyone can thrive. Early Giving is open beginning September 14. 2023.
OUR GOAL: Raise $5000 to purchase 20 iPads complete with Microsoft Office for the participants who have graduated from our Free 2B Me Program (Learn More). These devices will help them in their search for employment and apartments, as well as in their educational pursuits – often requiring the use of Zoom to attend.
Graduates currently use their phones, and the phone screen as you can imagine is not sufficient to do homework, sign documents, etc. So we are helping, along with our partner Human-I-T to provide technology that will assist in reaching their goalsand dreams. To be successful as they move forward to a life with new beginnings!
One of our graduates, who has been through so much trauma, mental and physical abuse because of her trafficker shared these words and was able to come to the realization:
“I am not damaged goods – I am success.”
– Gems Uncovered Graduate
This is our “WHY” we do what we do!
Thank you from all of us at Gems Uncovered for bringing hope, making a difference, and being a part of her dream to succeed.
