I make sure to go to First Place's annual fundraiser breakfast every year because I truly believe in this organization and what they stand for. I can tell that they are dedicated to what they do---you can see it in the faces of the children they help. I feel honored to be a part of that every year.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change the lives of hundreds of thousands of children across the US. They could help shape the futures of so many people who just need the support to thrive and grow.
