The Dancing Penguins
Hey. I'm Fariha, and I am currently involved with the nonprofit organization Break Through the Static that supports and empowers teenagers impacted by suicide in the Bay Area. I am involved with this organization because Static aids suicide-bereaved teens in connecting with other suicide-bereaved teens. Static builds a community where everyone understands how suicide rips apart lives and how we are left to figure a way to deal with the pieces. With the string of suicides that occurred here in 2009, I truly believe that Break Through the Static provides Palo Alto teens with a life-changing platform where teens meet, connect, and support each other. With the Static community, teens are surrounded a group of caring and supporting people who are here to help teens put their lives back together and move on.
On Saturday December 17th, Break Through the Static (Static) is hosting a Polar Bear Plunge fundraising event in Half Moon Bay, CA. Ten local high schools are competing to raise the most money before jumping into the ice cold Pacific Ocean in outrageous costumes - all to benefit Static! We are expecting around 150 people to come support and cheer on me and the other participants running into the ocean.
My minimum fundraising goal is $100 dollars. Would you consider sponsoring my plunge into the Pacific Ocean? If ten people donate $10, I will have already met my goal! By donating to this cause, you would be enabling Static to continue their important work supporting, connecting and empowering suicide-bereaved teens.
There are four ways to make a tax-deductible donation:
I am very excited to participate in Break Through the Static’s first Polar Bear Plunge. And I hope you will consider supporting this important organization. There are so many teens who have been affected by suicide - they really need all of our help.
Sincerely, Fariha Beig
