For many Americans, giving is second nature. We give of ourselves at work, at home, and, if we still have energy left, to our community. Of course, we all pay our taxes, so in that sense, we play a role. Yet, we know there are needs that aren’t addressed. We know there are problems too big for normal solutions. And, so, we wish we could help, but we can’t solve the world’s ills. They’re too big for you. Or, are they?
One of the most overlooked aspects of living in a city like Chicago is the sheer human willpower accumulated in one place. If that collective willpower can be directed at any issue, no matter how large, a solution can be found. It simply takes all of us – no matter our race, religion, or socioeconomic background – to come together and demand change – through words, deeds, and dollars.
When you’re looking at the world from an isolated perspective, it can all seem too large, too overwhelming to make a difference. But, and this is the StarDreamers message, you’re not alone. You don’t have to fight the good fight by yourself. No, there are organizations like ours that try and make positive change each and every day. Join with us and empower yourself and our programs with your energy and commitment. Become an Ebony One in the lives of at-risk children!
