Paint the Streets Purple
November 10, 2015
THANK YOU for helping us #PaintTheStreetsPurple during the season of giving – from supporting us on #GivingTuesday, to joining us at Shop, Jingle & Mingle, and showing why #TeensMATTER every day!
Every Chicago teen who wears our signature purple t-shirt represents one more teen who is finding their voice, discovering their potential and building their future. This giving season, you can help us Paint the Streets Purple. All Chicago teens deserve the opportunity to have a life-changing program experience. By Painting the Streets Purple, we can show what it means to be a part of After School Matters.
Here’s how you can help Paint the Streets Purple this season:
- Your Support MATTERS, all year long – Help us provide more Chicago teens with the opportunity to be a part of After School Matters.
- #GivingTuesday, Tuesday December 1 – This is a global day of giving fueled by social media. Learn more at givingtuesday.org. It will be a great day to give to After School Matters and our amazing teens on #GivingTuesday, then share why you believe #TeensMATTER on social media.
- Shop, Jingle & Mingle, Tuesday December 15, 4-7:00pm (calendar item) – Join us at this holiday shopping event to purchase unique, teen-created gifts at the After School Matters Retail Store (66 E.
