A MESSAGE FROM Lauren's Kilimanjaro, Boston and Berlin Fundraising Page
I first became involved with the non-profit The Foundation for Tomorrow (TFFT) in 2019, hosting a pop-up event at my studio. I didn’t know much about the organization at that time other than it was helping kids, but the more I got involved the more I realized it focused on a specific challenge in Tanzania. TFFT’s mission is to secure quality education and emotional support for orphan and vulnerable children so that they may reach their full potential and thrive in their communities.

With 45% of its citizens under 15 years old, Tanzania has one of the world's youngest populations. 5.1 million children in Tanzania aged 7 – 17 are out of school, only 28% of Tanzanian adolescents complete secondary school, and a stark 1% of Tanzanians enroll in higher education. Realizing that a child’s geographic location should not be the determinant of educational opportunities in life, I became more involved, first running with Team TFFT, then helping with events, and finally by becoming a board member.

This remarkable organization supports the education of orphaned and vulnerable youth in Tanzania and has a learning center (the first of its kind in this area of Africa) for the Arusha community. All of this has been built by friends and family, like you, and has led to us being able to watch program alumni succeeding in their communities and truly making a difference!

This year, I’m running three (THREE!) separate races with Team TFFT. You know I love making miles count but this year I’d like to use both my art and my running to hopefully take my fundraising to a new level! I’m going to sell raffle tickets three times this year, one for each race. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll have your choice of a 30x40 abstract, a deconstructed floral, or a still life, with a value of $1800. I hope you’ll participate!

Tickets:
- $25 = 1 entry
- $50 = 2 entries
- $100 = 5 entries
- $250 = 15 entries
- $500 = 35 entries
- $1,000 = 75 entries
