Mirrors Appeal For Pledges: Stand For Youth

February 7, 2014

The Mirrors programme has invited the community to join them as they take a “Stand for Youth” by raising pledges to support the programme.

Stand for Youth Campaign Manager, Vernelda Perinchief-Tatem said, “There comes a time in your life when you realize that what you value and hold dear must be spoken and declared publicly as evidence of the stand you are.

“That time has come for Mirrors Programme Coordinator, Kimberley Jackson. Kim is at work on taking a stand for the youth in our community.

“She is using the Bermuda Day Half-Marathon Derby to make her stand known. Ms. Jackson is doing this by challenging herself to run the entire course and working to raise money between now and Bermuda Day, on behalf of safeguarding Bermuda’s youth.

“Half of the funds raised will go towards school based educational programmes or afterschool activities and the other half will go towards Mirrors programming.”

Senator Alexis Swan ‘s full statement follows below:

Good morning everyone,

It is with great pleasure that I stand before you on behalf of the Hon. Minister R. Wayne Scott JP, MP Minister for Community , Culture and Sports and introduce to you the Taking a Stand for Youth Campaign – an initiative that has come to life through the partnership between the Mirrors Alumni and Friends Association and the Mirrors Programme.

There comes a time in your life when you realize that what you value and hold dear must be spoken and declared publicly as evidence of the stand you are. That time has come for Mirrors Programme Coordinator, Kimberley Jackson. Kim is at work on “Taking a Stand for the Youth” in our community.

She is using the Bermuda Day [24th May 2014] half-marathon derby to make her stand known. Kim is doing this by challenging herself to run the entire course and working to raise $600,000.00 between now and Bermuda Day, on behalf of safeguarding Bermuda’s youth. Half of the funds raised will go towards school based educational programmes or afterschool activities and the other half will go towards Mirrors programming.

Please join Kim in taking a stand for youth by:

  • 1. Making a pledge of $120 to the campaign. Our goal is for 5000 people to make a pledge to raise the focus of the youth in our community.
  • 2. You can also choose to participate with Kim to run the entire Bermuda Day half marathon derby or
  • 3. Organize a relay team to run in the Bermuda Day half-marathon derby. Either way we are looking for your support.

This is an opportunity for all facets of the community to unite and show our youth that they are important and valued. You do not have to run to make a pledge. We want to demonstrate our actions by raising the funds for youth programming and having a broad presence demonstrating the message that youth matter.

We would like to thank the Mirrors Alumni and Friends Association for partnering with us in this campaign.

Kim looks forward to your support and commitment as she seeks to work with the community to safeguard Bermuda’s youth. She believes a thriving economy is based on thriving youth, raising their educational attainment, security and bonding with healthy adults and access to their visions and dreams.

Let’s take a stand Bermuda!
