There has been an inconceivable amount of individuals in my life that have encouraged my own personal growth and exploration of the world around me. I want to say thank you to all those people because without them I would not be the person that I am today. I would not embody the self-confidence and self-esteem that I have without the support and nurturing environment that I was blessed to grow up in. With that being said, I now want to give back.
During my walk across the country, I partnered with a non-profit organization, Youth World, and donated fifty percent of the money that was raised for my trek. The money went towards providing free lunches to the children, once a month community outreach programs, after-school care, and much more!
What is Youth World?
Youth World’s mission is “Helping at-risk kids and teens find their place in the world.” All of the resources and programs provided by their facility are completely free to the Dallas, TX community and solely operated based off of volunteers. The children that find safe harbor at Youth World benefit from positive relationships with their peers and adults, receive encouragement to build a foundation of confidence and hope, and a safe place to be a kid.

How to Donate?
To avoid fees taken out of your donation and to optimize security I have decided to create a paypal.me link: paypal.me/dancingwiththedirt. This allows 100 percent of your donation to help support my journey of self- discovery and growth through adventure activities. Currently, I am not partnered with any organization.
If you do not already have a paypal account you will need to create one. I apologize for the inconvenience but after a few painless steps it will be over! Many thanks to your generosity and support!
Step 1: Go to paypal.me/dancingwiththedirt and log in or create an account
Step 2: Type in the amount of money you’d like to donate and click “Next.”
