Proceeds benefit Raise the Barr Foundation, a project of Driving Force Group
Based on 45 tackles, each worth $224.95
by transforming the lives of single parents and their families.
I established Raise the Barr to help break the cycle of poverty for low-income single-parent families by helping single parents complete their post-secondary education. That means Raise the Barr provides school tuition, helps pay childcare costs, prepares children for success in school, and provides emergency grants for single parents in Minnesota and California. We’ve been working with Jeremiah Program since the beginning. I’ve made it a priority to visit the children at Jeremiah Program once a month during the NFL season.
That’s why, this season I’m taking the field to make my tackles count for more! I’m personally pledging $100 for every tackle I have this season to transform the lives of single parents and their families, and I’m asking you to join me and make your pledge today. With your pledges, every tackle means more families’ lives transformed from poverty to prosperity.
All of the funds raised from this campaign will be split between Raise the Barr and Jeremiah Program and our combined work to transform lives two generations at a time. No pledge or donation is too small or too big. Every little bit helps provide a lifetime of opportunities for single parents and their families.
Thank you for your generous support!
“If I’m just present at some point to try and be that father figure-type person … just to give them someone to look up to and show that you can do that,” Barr said. “You don’t have to have two parents or be raised with a silver spoon in order to be successful. It’s what you make of it.”
Helping families like ours!
Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance.
Jeremiah’s proven, holistic approach begins with establishing a supportive community for determined single mothers to pursue a career-track, college education. Through a combination of quality early childhood education, a safe and affordable place to live, and empowerment and life skills training, families find stability and a path out of poverty.
