America’s Giving Challenge: Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who helped Tomorrow’s Youth Organization in America’s Giving Challenge. The competition was incredibly stiff, and we did not win a top prize. However, we finished in the top 2% of over 6,000 organizations who participated – a real achievement for us in our very first Giving Challenge! And even more importantly, we raised so much awareness about our cause and organization! In the last month, I have talked to so many people who are excited about TYO and our work. Maggie, a former intern, emailed over 50 friends and family members about her experience at TYO Continue reading…

Last Days of Classes & UN International Youth Day

August 12 is the last day of TYO’s 2009 Summer Program. It also happens to be the UN’s International Youth Day. We want to end our awesome summer with a bang, showing off all that our kids have learned and accomplished over the last 2 months. By supporting the event, you’ll help us provide fun and games, healthy (and delicious – we swear!) snacks, and take-home treats for 400 4-18 year olds in Nablus. We’ve already got dried fruit snacks, a dabka dance group, and clowns, but with just $2.50 per child we can really thrill these kids! Donate here. Continue reading…

New Van helps TYO to unite Nablus

A generous donation from a philanthropist in Cairo funded the purchase of a new 19-passenger van for the Tomorrow’s Youth Organization center in Nablus! The van means a lot to TYO’s entire community, because they come to TYO from all over the city of Nablus and its refugee camps. As a result of poverty, minimal public transportation infrastructure, and the safety risks of moving around the city, most Nabulsis with whom we work have never ventured beyond their immediate neighborhoods. Further, the large population of the three refugee camps within the city limits (about 1/3 of Nablus’s 120,000 people) is Continue reading…

Thanks to Craig of craigslist!

Tomorrow’s Youth Organization is hugely grateful to Craig Newmark, customer service rep and founder of craigslist, for today’s donation of $10,000! We also appreciate efforts by the Clinton Global Initiative and US-Palestine Partnership that helped Craig find us in his efforts to improve life in the West Bank through access to technology.
