“I want to be a fighter. I want to protect myself and it is good for my body.” –Walinja, 15-year-old resident of Mercy Housing apartment in Kent
There’s something crucial about a young female understanding her own empowerment. You can help girls and boys in the Appian Way Mercy Housing apartments learn confidence and body positive empowerment through martial arts by donating today. Just $75 dollars provides two children participating in the program with uniforms and belts so they can be a part of the Quantum family.
“I like it when I know how to do it.” — Janet, 8 years old
“I like doing basic form because I can practice and do it well.” — Anna, 13 years old
“It’s fun and it’s good exercise.” — Xaimen, 15 years old
You can support Quantum families to help parents and kids participate in an activity that will keep them close and inspire them to make the world a better place.
Quantum offers scholarships to families in need and significant family discounts so that siblings and parents can find strength in training together.
Quantum will once again be taking part in the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event. This is a one-day giving extravaganza where you can join thousands of others in contributing to charities and nonprofits you support.
Last year, Quantum raised over $6,000 from generous donors, and this year we’re hoping to raise $7,000 with your support! The Quantum leadership has stepped up and created a matching fund of $3,000 to bring us almost halfway to our goal. And with your contributions, we can reach our goal and keep growing and strengthening our community!
Every $75 buys two kids uniforms for our outreach programs, $150 buys colored belts for one session at Lake Washington Girls Middle School, and $500 provides a new uniform and a year of classes for a child on scholarship at our dojo. These are the real effects of your generosity, and they reach further every time!
Please, join us on May 10th, 2017 and donate!
