Of one essence is the human race, thusly has creation put the base, one limb impacted is sufficient, for all others to feel the mace the unconcern’s with other’s plight, are but brutes with human face
Poem by Saadi Shirazi Translation by Iraj Bashiri
Since 2017, Arise & Flourish has approached over 100 middle and high schools and educated well over 12,000 students in an attempt prevent our youth from substance abuse and addictive behaviors. This would not have been possible if it was not for theselfless efforts of tens of dedicated volunteers who strongly believe in sharing of their own trauma and experience with their peers. Our efforts in maintaining this grassroots operation efficiently has made it possible for us to pursue our mission as economically as possible. So far, with negligible administrative expense we have been able to spread our education with a cost of about $5.00 per student per visit. As our resources have been limited so far, now we are hoping that your generosity enables us to achieve the goal of approaching a higher number of school age children and youth within our communities in an effort to teach them how not to give to the temptation and stand away from addictive behavior. With a monthly contribution of $5.00, we can reach out to far more youth than we have been able to do in the past. Please help us to help others.
