Top 5 Updates for Friends of the Purple Feet Foundation


Thank you so much for your continued support of the Purple Feet Foundation (PFF).  It's been a great fall and we have a lot of updates that we want to share. In fact, we have so many that we're going to narrow it down to our top 5.

#5 - As you already know, the thinc Program this past August was a huge success thanks to your support. If you haven't watched it yet, here is our #thinc2013 video.  

#4 - The thinc Program was such a success that we had some really awesome news coverage. Check out our new "newsroom" page on the PFF website.

#3 - This fall we started our thinc Career Chats to connect really amazing people who have equally amazing careers with students who are "thincing" about their futures. Our first one for this school year featured four-time Super Bowl champion J.T. Thomas. His message was powerful and the kids loved him. Check it out here.

#2 - To strengthen the connection between the students who attend each year, we are bringing the students together twice during the year.  This coming Saturday we will visit Villanova University for a mini-reunion and then we'll get together again in the spring.

#1 - We have decided that in order to really fulfill our vision for the thinc Program we need to work with the students over the course of multiple years. So, this Saturday the students who attended last summer as sixth graders will be invited to attend again in the summer of 2014. Plus, we'll accept a new group of sixth graders. Ultimately, we will work with the students for three consecutive years until they reach high school. When they do that, we'll invite them back as counselors.  

Making all of this happen for at-risk students who crave opportunities and embrace kindness is only possible because of you.  

Thank you again for your support of the Purple Feet Foundation!
