Did you know that amid the stories and theories and legends about the origins of Valentine’s Day, is one common element: all of the theories suggest that “Valentine”, of whom there seem to have been more than one, had altruistic intentions, and met with their end as a result. How sad, considering that now, February 14th honours their legacies.
What does this have to do with Boys and Girls Clubs? Well, like St. Valentine, you’ve been kind and caring to us this past year. Our amazing kids and families, all 12,000 of them, showed up in droves last year, and are on track to do the same again in 2018. We can only do what we do – provide them with a sense of belonging, and all of the great things that they need to grow up well, with the support of our friends like you.
So, in case you’re inspired by our old pal, St. Valentine, you could kick off 2018 by showing us (and our amazing kids) the love again this year. Click here to learn how much of a difference it will make!
And, again, Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope yours is full of kindness, caring, and all of the love!
