Send this email to friends and colleagues and invite them to join Afterschool for All.
Please take a few seconds to join me, and many thousands of others, in showing our support for quality, affordable afterschool by signing the national petition for Afterschool for All. This is a serious and urgent issue in our communities today. Each day, more than 15 million children are on their own after school. These children face great risks. Meanwhile, kids in afterschool programs are reaping great benefits. They do better in school, have greater expectations for the future and get the chance to discover new talents, from karate to film-making to mentoring others.
Becoming an Afterschool for All partner takes only a minute. To sign on, simply go to: www.afterschoolalliance/a4ajoin.cfm
More than 25,000 partners, among them governors, mayors, police chiefs, educators, corporate leaders, faith-based organizations and moms and dads, have signed on. Your name will help us convey the broad and diverse support for afterschool programs.
Please feel free to extend this invitation to your friends and colleagues. As this list grows, so too does the visibility of this important issue.
PS - No need to worry that signing on will commit you to anything. There are no requirements, financial or otherwise, to join. And your information will never be shared or sold.
