Help Shaka and Maya Smart raise funds and awareness for FRIENDS Association for Children (FRIENDS RVA), a nonprofit that's supported Richmond kids for more than 140 years.
As a family, we made a personal donation to FRIENDS but we also want to mobilize hundreds of other donors and volunteers to support the organization by buying or selling Friends RVA shirts (pictured above). Having thousands of FRIENDS shirts in circulation will go a long way toward boosting awareness of the organization, growing its volunteer rolls and amplifying its impact.
Great prizes (listed to the right) are up for grabs for the top fundraisers. They include dinner with Shaka, a Limited Edition Shaka t-shirt, a Samsung 55” SMART LED TV and other one-of-a-kind rewards. The team that sells the most shirts wins Shaka for an hour. He can give a motivational speech at your next company meeting or lead your group in an hour-long workout. It’s up to you!
Founded in 1871, FRIENDS has been supporting success in the lives of children and families in Richmond for more than 140 years. Today, it helps hundreds of kids realize their potential through early childhood development, art and music enrichment, afterschool programs, summer camps, mentorship, and parent education. Through these services, children are gaining the critical literacy and developmental skills needed to succeed in life and contribute to the well-being of our community.
