Donating to Thank You Darlin Foundation Helps Deliver Literacy Programs to Disadvantaged Youth

This year’s North Texas Giving Day is Communities Foundation of Texas’ annual 18-hour online giving extravaganza for North Texas nonprofits, like the Thank You Darlin Foundation, that is powered by creative nonprofits, social media activism, area wide collaboration, and of course you! The goal of this day of generous giving is to help build awareness and support for nonprofits in the North Texas region.

North Texas Giving Day – Thank you from the Thank You Darlin Foundation.

Your Donation Supports TYD’s Arts and Literacy-focused Program

Thank You Darlin’ Foundation is requesting your support.  Large or small, all donations received will be used to support our on-going arts and literacy-focused program which has been recognized for best practices by the Texas A & M University.  With the funds we received last year, the Thank You Darlin’ Foundation delivered over 250 hours of creative expression time for 2,900 disadvantaged youth!  This school-year, we hope and expect to expand our reach.

Your support is needed now.  Learners will receive guidance from professional instructors and gain opportunities to engage in enrichment activities structured to produce positive outcomes, which include:

  • improved confidence and vocabulary
  • descriptive writing
  • public speaking
  • strong comprehension skills

These are essential skills for children’s academic and personal success.  In addition, young students get a chance to discover their own voice and tell their own story either through programs such as our annual Poetry Slam or Anthology or through their own classwork.

Feedback About TYDF’s Program

Students

“The poetry program has helped me change because like when I’m doing writing and reading, it has questions about poetry and instead of not understanding it I actually understand it now and I have a way of writing without sounding really boring. I write words that you can understand now and like see them in your head.” –Harmony, 4th Grade

“The Thank You Darlin Foundation helped me.  I’ve actually found a new way for me to express my feelings and now I feel more confident about myself.” – Luke, 5th Grade

“Simply, it was an amazing, fun, new experience.  For the first time in my life I felt like people actually wanted to hear what I had to say.”  It was thrilling, I felt so renewed after doing it.  In so many other things, it’s just reciting a poem, or something somebody else wrote, but this, I got to say one of my very own poems.” – Jennifer, 10th Grade

Principals, Teachers and Youth Program Directors

“The poetry students love to go and remain constantly involved.  We’ve definitely seen improvement in their writing skills and public speaking.” – Ms. Angel, Fort Worth schoolteacher and Fort Worth After School Program site-coordinator

“I have had the privilege of working with the Thank You Darlin’ Foundation for six consecutive years. I am very proud to have such a unique and fulfilling program at my school.  My students receive opportunities to read, write and learn about the essence of poetry.  These opportunities have allowed students to enhance their reading, writing, comprehension and presentation skills.  As a culminating result of the above benefits, students that have participated in the TYD Foundation over the years have demonstrated great improvements in their character and self-esteem.” – Seretha Lofton, Principle of Christene C, Moss Elementary in Fort Worth, Texas

“It has been my experience that their services are as exemplary as their passion for promoting student achievement.  Many of our students have overcome the fear of speaking in public, gained higher self-esteem, and improved their reading and writing skills”.  – Keith Besses, Principle of Van Zandt-Guinn Elementary in Fort Worth, Texas

Parents and Guardians
