Hey, everyone! So we’ve covered Texas, Indiana, and now we’ve come to Louisiana. My org for Louisiana is Son of a Saint, with an office in Metairie, LA and serving young men from New Orleans.
With my third donation, I specifically wanted to concentrate on something serving people in New Orleans. As I mentioned in my Giving Tuesday post I got my B.A. at the University of New Orleans and, as a result, the city holds a very special place in my heart. I learned about Son of a Saint through a Facebook friend of mine from undergrad. He is heavily involved as a mentor and posts often about the things his mentees accomplish, so it piqued my interest!
Son of a Saint “exists to enhance the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, development of life skills, exposure to constructive experiences and formation of positive, lasting peer-to-peer relationships.” What a fantastic and life-changing cause for these young guys! They’re able to provide everything from counseling to tutoring, you can learn more about the amazing opportunities and support they’re able to offer here.
I won’t actually say much about the organization because they have a tear-jerker of a video that I want to share with you instead. Be sure to have your tissues ready!
Next week be on the look out for my highlight post!
