THE GENERATION PROJECT INC
January 12, 2011

I have been involved with The Generation Project since its inception. I distinctly remember, in early 2008 when the founders of The Generation Project told me about their idea for a non-profit. Since that time, I have been witness to so many amazing accomplishments by The Generation Project. I was there when it won their first online voting competition and received a grant, which provided the seed money to launch www.thegenerationproject.org. I was there when it launched a pilot program that provided gifts to underprivileged students in Los Angeles and Detroit. I was there when it received 501(C)(3) status. I was there for a nationwide launch tour sponsored by Rugby Ralph Lauren. I have witnessed the Generation Proejct implement over five hundred gifts, which have provided underprivileged students with amazing educational opportunities.

I have been a proud member of the Board of Directors of The Generation Project for nearly two years. I am also a proud donor, having designed multiple gifts for students in the Washington DC area. I will continue to support The Generation Project.
