Hey friends! I’m SO EXCITED to share with you that I’ll be co-hosting a Soul Cycle Charity Ride in partnership with the new STAND app in support of Pencils of Promise, a non-profit dedicated to giving children in poverty the chance to equal opportunity and quality eduction. Their mission is to build schools, train teachers, and fund scholarships for children in need.
As I sent off Hayden to Kindergarten this year, I realize how fortunate she is to receive a good education. It makes me sad to think that many children out there are still struggling just to get a book in his or her hand. These children don’t even get a chance to be educated or discover their own potentials.
Of course, these issues have been ongoing and even though I cannot be out there everyday helping the cause, I want to do something. I’m really glad I discovered Pencils of Promise through STAND, a new mobile app where it makes it easy for people to put their compassion into action. I get to discover causes I care about AND connect with those who share the same interests and passions as me. I’m a supporter of philanthropy and strongly believe in enriching the lives of children and young women. This app allows me to connect with others through shared interests and passions, and using our connections to support the charities that matter to us most – all from the iPhone!
That said, I’m asking you today to donate to Pencils of Promise through my STAND! I would be SO GRATEFUL!!! You’re welcome to donate in any amount, but if you donate $50 or more, it will guarantee you a bike at SoulCycle, goodie bags, and sweaty Instagrams with me on 9/19! :)
WHEN: Saturday, September 19, at 3pm
WHERE: SoulCycle, 2095 Union Street, San Francisco.
DONATE & RSVP: Donate $50 to Jeanne’s STAND for Pencils of Promise (or Cait’s STAND for charity:water.) Every person who donates $50 to one of those two STANDs will have a bike for the SoulCycle ride. Here’s how to donate and RSVP:
2. Donate in the app to Jeanne’s STAND (or Cait’s STAND).
In the app, tab the heart icon and select “Give to a STAND” section –> Search “SoulCycle” and select Jeanne’s STAND –> Select “Be A Giver” and you can easily donate from there. Easy as pie!
3. After you donate, you will receive a follow-up email from the STAND team with instructions about the ride! Please note, registration for the SoulCycle ride ends on Wednesday, 9/16. Again, it’s optional the amount you want to donate, but $50 donation will guarantee you a bike at SoulCycle.
CAN’T MAKE THE RIDE BUT STILL WANT TO DONATE: You can still donate but you will not need to register with SoulCycle. My heartfelt THANK YOU to you and you will receive good karma for the rest of the year! :)
Thanks so much in advance for your support. I hope to ride with you at SoulCycle on 9/19!
