If you are considering donating on this #GivingTuesday, I humbly ask for your consideration on behalf of the kids... 💝Greetings to all our Noble Path Foundation Friends and Family! The holidays are officially upon us and it feels like 2022 has flown by in the blink of an eye. As I reflect on this past year, I can honestly say we’ve made very good use of every moment. And when I say “we”, I refer to our partnership as a team, as we simply could not do what we do without your caring hearts and financial support. Here are just a few highlights from the incredible year you helped make possible:After transforming our “new” 100-year-old building in San Clemente into a cozy and creative haven for teens, we began 2022 by rolling out our Nourish to Flourish and AIM High programs, which help students reach their highest potential by educating them on the importance of what they eat, how they move, and with whom they interact. Since then, we’ve gone from servicing a handful of kids, to providing free programs and social activities for hundreds of young people from our neighboring communities.Our Nourish to Flourish clients benefited from free nutrition guidance, weekly personal training and hitting motivational life targets like learning how to ride a bike, running the mile at school, or making the high school football team. Our goal is to empower these young people with education and awareness on the importance of their food and lifestyle choices, so that they can look forward to a lifetime of health vs. succumbing to the chronic diseases which are shortening their lives in epidemic proportions. Beginning in March, we were able to offer three AIM High sessions this year. During each 7-week series, the participants gained valuable tools on how to navigate the often challenging waters of adolescence. Paired with leading mentors in our community, they engaged in thoughtful and stimulating conversations on topics like Trending Drug Cultures with Partners 4 Wellness and the OC Sheriff's Department; Healthy Relationships and Teen Dating presented by Laura’s House; Social Media and Self-Esteem by the Wellness & Prevention Center and much, much more. For example, we offered hands-on learning adventures called Life Skills. A former professional race car driver taught teens how to change a tire, check the oil, fix a flat and other crucial car care techniques. We visited an award-winning restaurant, where the students were taught basic cooking skills by the owner and executive chef and were then allowed to cook their own food in a professional kitchen. We planted a fruit and vegetable garden on our balcony to teach sustainability and How to Grow Your Own Food. Other life-lessons included Financial Literacy, Building a Global Clothing Brand and Learning How to Sew. Our free Socialization Programs became a hugely popular and entertaining way for our TNPF clubs on two different high school campuses to gather to work and play. We offered free Art and Guitar Lessons, along with Improv classes, taught by a professional SAG/AFTRA actor and member of ImprovCity. Our Friday “TGIF at TNPF” nights gave teens a healthy, safe, and drug-free environment in which to engage and interact with other teens while they enjoyed things like Movie Nights, Murder Mystery Nights, Open Mic Nights, and Gaming Nights. We even did Salsa Dancing! As an added bonus, the teens were given lots of opportunities for volunteer hours, participating in city and community events while learning public relations and marketing skills. We were proud to partner with government agencies like Ready Set OC, who provided paid work experience to a small handful of our budding entrepreneurs. It would be difficult to find a favorite moment amongst all the incredible memories we’ve created this year, but if I had to pick one, it might be something that happened to me last night as we wrapped up our final AIM High of 2022. After the certification ceremony where local politicians and dignitaries joined family and friends to celebrate our teen graduates, a young 15-yr old girl came up to me with tears in her eyes and said she just wanted to let me know how much being a part of our programs has meant to her. The friendships she formed and the feelings of acceptance and mutual respect were “things she didn’t even know she needed” until she found them. Here. We hugged and cried together.I am writing to let you know that none of this would be possible without the dedicated and tireless efforts of our volunteers and staff - and by the support we are given by our valued donors and benefactors. Our programs are growing by leaps and bounds as word gets out that we are open and available to help whoever is drawn to our lights. But this also means that our operating costs are growing, as we continue to provide all of our services at zero cost to more teens and their families. Our goal between now and the end of the year is to raise $20,000, which will allow us to head into the first quarter feeling confident about staffing and supplies. If you are considering a year-end donation or are thinking about setting up a small monthly gift of $100, $50 or even $25 a month, I can guarantee you that every penny of it will be spent on armoring up our young attendees against the many daggers this world throws at them. My New Year’s wish is that the blessings that sprinkled down on us in 2022 will gradually become a downpour, so that we can continue to do what we do best: love hard on these kids and help them remain healthy and whole. thenoblepathfoundation.org/donate/ I remain humbled and in awe of what we have accomplished this year and I look forward to 2023 with giddy anticipation of where this incredible journey will take us. The road thus far has brought more smiles, hugs, tears, and laughter than I could ever have imagined and I am beyond grateful for each and every one. On behalf of our entire team, I wish you and yours a very joyous holiday season, full of gratitude and appreciation for the gifts that bear no bows, and a healthy and vibrant new year!Heartfelt regards, Cindi Cindi Juncal, PresidentTHE NOBLE PATH FOUNDATION, Inc.949-234-7259 main, 949-981-4998 cellcindi@thenoblepathfoundation.orgwww.TheNoblePathFoundation.org ...
