Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy

If you are looking for a meaningful way to give a gift this holiday season, please consider giving the gift of opportunity to the diverse students of Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy.

Dear Friends,

I founded Joyful Mind Project because I believe that mindfulness can empower young people of all backgrounds to define, understand, and reach their highest goals, to inquire and create, and to bring that quest for understanding into the world.

What’s more, with mindfulness we can be a voice for justice, understanding, and compassion in the world.  As I am learning, directing our time and resources with intention can help create a world of equity, courage, and joy.

I am writing today to ask for your help in supporting a special school, Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy in Marin City.

Bayside MLK serves students in grades TK-8 and believes that mindfulness education will give their diverse student body an opportunity to reach their highest goals.

While Marin County is one of the wealthiest localities in the United States, 90% of students at Bayside MLK in Marin City are People of Color from low-income families.

With your help, Joyful Mind Project will bring a school-wide program to Bayside MLK in 2018, providing wrap-around care to students, faculty, and parents.

Your donations will directly benefit the children and young people at Bayside MLK.

I hope you’ll take a moment to look at the information provided below and consider making a donation today.  No gift is too small.

Thank you for all that you’ve done this year to help support Joyful Mind Project — and for considering this request.

With joyful enthusiasm,
Chelsea True
Founder, Joyful Mind Project
