A Blog First

Posted By on Thu, Jul 6, 2006 at 1:12 PM

For the first time in Weekly Blog history, we have had a request for coverage! In honor of this milestone, I shall blog the request, pretty much in its entirety.

Hi, Jimmy,

My name is Jennifer Warren and I live in the NW part of Tucson. I need your help in getting some exposure and a very important request out to the Tucson Community. I am the local international coordinator representing Aspect Foundation a Foreign Youth Exchange Non Profit organization 501(c)3 (www.aspectfoundation.org) and I have several kids who are coming to study in local Tucson area High Schools. They need families to volunteer to open their Hearts, homes, and tables ASAP. Will you please publish this request to the Tucson Weekly Blog website as soon as is convenient…I did send a request for this to be printed in the Bulletin Board section…But, honestly, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE for these really neat teens and they deserve immediate help and attention….THANK YOU for anything you can do to help these kids achieve their American Dreams!

Make an American Dream Come True! Become a Volunteer Host Family and earn a $50 donation for your favorite charity! Whether you’re married or single, with or without children, just starting out or just retired-you can make a difference in the life of a young person when you volunteer to host an international exchange student. Students come from nearly 30 countries around the globe, but share a common dream—to live and learn the American way of life with a family like yours! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE FOR THESE KIDS. Students are 15-18 and come with their own insurance and spending money. Change the world one friendship at a time. Learn how your family can have this unforgettable experience; please contact Jennifer Warren at 219-8119 or studyexchange@earthlink.net.
