Valentine’s Day Resolution

Hello to all of you single ladies and gentlemen and all of you women and men in relationships. Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I hope your 14th was fantastic.

For me, Valentine’s day is a time to spread love around, no matter if you are in a relationship or not.

That’s why, at my school, now wanting we tried to spread love throughout AC Davis High with popsicle sticks.  No wanting anybody to feel left out, we tried to make everyone feel special, and told them to pass it on throughout the school. This project reminded me a lot of what we do on the YouthWorks council.

Collectively, YouthWorks tries and spread love and joy throughout the entire community, currently we are doing this by the heart sales for Children’s Wellness Month at select stores like Lincoln Ave. Espresso, and Ted Browns Music.

We also are doing Mr. Pageants at local high schools in order to spread awareness and get more people involved. The guys involved in the pageants also come to help children with special needs at events like slugbugs, where children with special needs play basketball every Saturday, and the guys help make their day perfect.

YouthWorks is not all about fundraising money. It’s about making all kids, no matter what their needs feel comfortable, loved, and special; similar to how every person wants to feel on Valentine’s Day.
