Every gift made to Homeboy Industries assists and helps to
provide hope for an individual seeking a second chance.
Tribute & Memorial gifts are an excellent way to remember a
loved one or to celebrate a special occasion in someone’s life.
Your gift will make a positive impact in the lives of many
formerly gang involved.
You can help Homeboy: Be creative like The L.A. Paralegal Associatino, Nichole Baker, Lauren Tom and the Cloud Racing Team at Cornerstone OnDemand. Think about your next adventure, your next Marathon run, an upcoming event and turn it into an opportunity to help Homeboy Industries. Your creativity in this way and your donation/s allows us to continue the work we do, helping men and women leave their former gang lives, break the cycle of incarceration and transform their lives.
The Los Angeles Paralegal Association is holding a wine tasting on August 22. Proceeds from the event will go to support job training and the free services and programs offered at Homeboy Industries. Learn more and register at www.lapa.org.
Starting February 18th, Nichole is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. With a peak that is 5,895 meters above sea level, she is raising $1 for every meter above sea level that she climbs --- $5,895 for Homeboy Industries! Nichole knew she wanted to use the experience to give back. Nichole describes that her “attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro is merely a mole hill compared to the mountains of adversity, suffering and challenge that the young people affiliated with Homeboy Industries must climb simply to create a decent life for themselves. If they can overcome poverty, neglect, abuse, abandonment and violence, then I can certainly deal with the cold, the altitude, sickness and soreness.” For more information on Nichole’s trek up Mt. Kilimanaro: http://www.razoo.com/story/Nichole-S-Climb-To-Kilimanjaro
Homeboy Industries has a great friend in Lauren Tom who is entered in a “celebrity popularity contest”.

Spread the word. Help us --- pass word along to friends and family to vote early and often (every day!).
