A New Paddleboard for Elli to enjoy the Summer with her family

Posted Mar 29, 2022
Elli is so excited summer is coming, she is counting down the days and its less than two months. She recently went on a family trip and they rented paddleboards to share and she fell in love. She would love to have her own board, preferably one of her own but still HAS to match her big sisters board. They had so much fun making memories on the water over spring break she would love to continue those memories through summer.

Elli is 15 years old and lives in Grand Junction, CO

Elli entered the foster care system after enduring years of abuse and neglect by her biological family. She is finally thankful to feel at peace and safe where she is in her foster home. She has overcome so much in her life and has excelled in school all through the trauma she faced. Elli has worked hard to be accepted into a prestigious high school program where she will be able to earn her associates degree as she completes high school. It is a very rigorous program that gets high school students started on their college career and they can transfer their credits to many universities worldwide. She hopes to one day be a gaming designer and influence kids that are just like her and help others stay connected.
