Christmas Caring Holiday Basket – Nominate & Donate

Good evening GU4Ap supporters!

Here we are another year giving back to others. We love doing many things and mentoring and giving back is just a few favorites! Last year we were able to give away gift bags to two young ladies in need for Christmas, and a few years before that we did a Christmas drive in Cabazon, CA where we wrapped up clothes & shoes that were in great condition for families in need. Both events were a success and we wanted to do something for our girls this year.


We would like to put together a nice basket for one young lady anywhere in the United States that is in need.

Here are the directions on how you can do that:

Email us their name, what city and state they live in, the things you know they like and why you are nominating them. There is no set length on how long this information needs to be, it is for our records on indicating if the young lady will be chosen or not so put some thought and time in it.


We will need monetary donations of any amount. We aren’t going to give away items we know aren’t things that could be gifted. We want to make this a great gesture for a young girl in NEED very special. This is not to say we are purchasing expensive things.

If you make items you think a young girl could use, clothing, accessories, bath & body, an author and have a book you want to gift please let us know.

**If you are an organization that would like to help make this happen and add another young lady that can be gifted of a basket that we all can put together please contact us no later than Nov. 17th via email.

Nominations need to be in no later than

Nov. 28th at 9PM PST.

Donations will need to be sent and mailed no later than Dec. 8th

Care Packages: Back To School & Year Round Assistance…

We greatly appreciate it…
Thank you!

Special Thank You: Essay Contest Donations

I wanted to thank the people that took the time out to donate to our essay contest for AVID Seniors in our community.

Special thank you to:

Chris R.
& last but not least,
Pretty Little Black Girl-
Check out Pretty Little Black Girl. They have a PLBG Store (With shirts, & pins), & they’re offering an Internship. Most importantly, they are trying to send one child from each region to a summer camp. Tell them we sent you!

Once again, thank you to everyone that RT’d our tweets, donated, or contributed in some sort of way. We really appreciate it.

We were able to reach ABOVE our goal. We contributed funds to the essay contest as well. So, one student will be awarded $100 that will go towards their first semester/Qrt away to college. Although it’s not $1,000 it’ll still come in handy for the student to have something for whatever it is they need to use it towards (of course school related). I myself remember the times, when different people helped me throughout college with as little as $25, and it helped.

We will be reviewing their essays very soon and can’t wait!

Thank you!

Ashley N.

Update: Donations-Essay Contest

Hello everyone!

I would like to remind you all that we are approaching our deadline to have all of our donations in by APRIL 2nd

We’ve only received a total of $30 (the $25 doesn’t show up on the “Chip In” because it was donated before I posted that button through PayPal) so far, so we still need donations to make this happen. I hope you all will spread the word if you haven’t and if you have, continue to do so on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, F-2-F. We’ve been tweeting about this throughout the month.

Thank you for all of the support and to those that have donated. Remember this is for a great cause. Give a $1, $2, or $10 if you got it.

Thank you….Appreciate it!
