My Project

Hey, everybody! My name is Anna Jo Young, and I am a teacher at US in Nampa, Idaho. Long story short, I work for a Title One school (90% of our students quality for free or reduced lunch and many are from poor, broken homes), and we are raising money to host our prom. This year, our budget is short, so we don't have the funding we would normally have. Traditional schools typically glean a lot of funding from ticket sales, but since we want to make sure every student can come (most are at-risk in some way), we keep our ticket sales very low. Most of our students could not afford to go to a traditional prom.

That being said, we're seeking to purchase decorations and materials to host an amazing prom for our students!

Any donation would be awesome! We'd love your help to create a fabulous (fun and safe) night for our students. If you know Beyonce, that would be great, too.
