Super STEM Saturdays
by Daphne Stallings
Future innovators and leaders will be capable of handling the changing economic landscape if they are well versed in one, or more of the STEM disciplines; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Unfortunately, underserved youth, especially girls, are not acquiring these skills upon graduation, leaving them at a disadvantage when it comes to obtaining higher paying, STEM jobs. Therefore, The Access Academy has devised the Super STEM Saturday program to promote student's interest and access to STEM and prepare them for the STEM economy.

Provide Students Enrichment
by Colleen Drazen
Aim High serves to combat systemic and social barriers for students of color and low-income students face when it comes to achieving in the classroom. Providing students access to educational enrichment helps prevent the loss of knowledge and skills over the summer known as "the summer slide" and personal enrichment gives students the confidence they need to know they can succeed. I am proud to serve an organization that works to eliminate barriers that exist to allow students access to quality summer programming. Your support will ensure students can get to and from the program (often a large barrier to attending summer programs), they will have healthy breakfast and lunch (with 84% of students qualifying for free or reduced lunch) and all supplies the students need to jump right into learning. Support from the community allows Aim High to be offered tuition free for the students and their families.

The Right Tools to Build a Better Future
by Antionette Cotton
As a single mom I was always looking for avenues to enrich my children's lives. I wanted them to see and experience as much of the world as possible. Aim High was one key that helped us unlock doors to cultural and educational exploration. Aim High created an environment where parents and children alike could participate and grow together. The educators worked not for profit but for passion which was an investment into the lives of the children the connected with. I want to help other children obtain the tools for building a better future just as my children were able to. Please give to this worthy cause. Your simple $10 donation on May 1 can turn the key for many youth.

Giving for the Kitties!
by Stacey Lewis
As a long-time supporter of animal welfare, I thought I understood the dangers of the streets for these cats and kittens. Working for Animal House, I see first-hand how bad it can be - and how wonderful and loving they are, in spite of all the awful things they have experienced. Animal House is so unique in the care, love and time given to each cat to heal, trust, play and thrive. I'm a 2-time adopter from Animal House and I couldn't imagine life without Nutmeg and Izzy. The support and advice I received from our adoption counselor on integrating the kitties and keeping them healthy and happy was invaluable!
I cannot imagine a better place to meet a new best friend and am grateful to support Animal House in their mission to save more lives.

Turning Challenges Into Opportunities
Arya came into our lives and left footprints on our hearts. Arya needed special care and support. We were overwhelmed with the support from the Saint Louis community where she was born. "The Arya Foundation" is her legacy to share the same support and happiness we received with other children like Arya.
The Arya Foundation is a Saint Louis-based nonprofit that aims to provide the medical aids and adaptive equipment for children with special needs living in our community.
We are proud to say that we are growing at a pace faster than we could have imagined. But we can not do this alone. We need our community support in making "The Arya Foundation" as amazing as it can be.
Come together and continue to support this powerful cause that is very personal to us. Make your way around donating for a special cause or referring a child to be helped by "The Arya Foundation".

The Big Muddy Dance Fest
by Carly Vanderheyden
The first annual Big Muddy Dance Fest will be a full weekend of activities that promote better understanding of what's available in St. Louis for dancers: healthy meals, injury prevention, technique classes, stage-acting, cross-training, and above all the access to see great professional dance onstage. The Dance Fest will be November 9 & 10, and will serve as The Big Muddy Dance Company's kickoff to its 2019-20 Fortissimo Season, a lineup of productions that each feature a single composer. The Big Muddy Dance Fest will bring various vendors that target dancers for their services, and each vendor will present their materials at a booth at the Marcelle Theater. Meanwhile at the Washington Studio next door, a variety of master classes and showcases by local artists will provide opportunity for dancers of all levels and ages to participate.

Each donation made will help The Big Muddy Dance Company in planning, curating, and producing the first annual Dance Fest!

Such Sweet Thunder
by Molly Ryan
The Big Muddy Dance Company will join other well-established arts organizations, Jazz St. Louis, Shakespeare Festival, and Nine Network for the creation and production of "Such Sweet Thunder." The production aims to reflect and intertwine the three vastly differing eras: Shakespeare, Duke Ellington, and current day's contemporary dance. Featuring the titled twelve-part jazz suite composed by Duke Ellington in 1957 based on the writings of William Shakespeare, The Big Muddy Dance Company will premiere an hour-long dance work. Through the brilliant choreography of Dexandro Montalvo, the dancers will outline Shakespeare's works in combination with Jazz St. Louis musicians performing live onstage and renowned professional actors reciting excerpts from Shakespeare.

Help The Big Muddy collaborate with the other organizations to implement this presentation to its fullest potential and bring the arts to a wider community.

Sr. Director, Resource Development
by Darcy Callahan
Across the nation and right here in St. Louis, kids and teens need additional resources to help them academically, socially and emotionally.
This is especially true during the summer months when school is not in session. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis offers a great summer camp experience to help fill this gap. On Give STL Day, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis is trying to raise enough money to send 100 local children who may not be able to afford this life-changing experience to their camps. Please join with me to give the gift of a summer to remember to 5 of these children.

Mental Health & Safety Program
The purpose of this project is to ensure that all individuals with brain injury who wish to access behavioral health services will have the means to do so with a qualified provider who specializes in the unique needs of brain injury. The Brain Injury Foundation of St. Louis is seeking to fund a psychologist, who exclusively treats individuals with a brain injury, to provide individual and group psychotherapy to individuals with brain injury and their families/caregivers who could not otherwise pay for or access treatment.

People who have experienced a brain injury are more likely to experience emotional distress, psychiatric symptomology, and suicidal ideation. Individuals with TBI have triple the chance of early death due to suicide, substance abuse and psychiatric illness [Source: Fazel S, Wolf A, Pillas D, Lichtenstein P, Långström N. Suicide, Fatal Injuries, and Other Causes of Premature Mortality in Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury. JAMA Psychiatry. 2014]. This is a result of hopefulness during the early stages of recovery, followed by disappointment or setbacks that may occur along the way, causing an individual to become overwhelmed by reality and hopelessness. Adjustment counseling from the very beginning has the power to disrupt that hopelessness.The funding will allow us to fund psychology sessions for individuals with brain injury and their families in hopes of ending this cycle of destruction.
