The chickens were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of cooked turkeys danced in their heads. The birds were relieved by the end of Snowvember. And thankful; the Bills Night Out would be on the 4th of December. Shopping online and philanthropy can be synonymous when you use AmazonSmile.

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! The Bills Night Out Comeback will happen on December 4, 2014 at West Hertel Academy from 7-9 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm. If you don't have any tickets we have a few remaining.
There will be NO TICKET SALES AT THE DOOR! Please call 716-830-8240.
We hope your day is filled with heart smiles! It may seem like a no-brainer but we will have to reschedule the Bills Night Out.
We were going to have over 1,000 people visit West Hertel Academy tomorrow Fri. Nov 21, 2014 to hear messages about character, faith and morals from the Bills players and their wives. Imagine all 1,000 people going out and serving a neighbor with the spare time created because of our need to reschedule?
Please stay safe during your opportunity to serve. Please don't hesitate to ask a neighbor for help if you need it. This is a season of community in the City of Good Neighbors. When all is said and done, the Bills Night Out will be covered in gratitude for all that you've done.
Sometimes we have to wait patiently for life changing events to happen at the appointed time. Our goal at Youth With A Purpose is to reach every child in the Buffalo Schools with a Mentor Touch-Point that inspires hope and gratitude as children feel valued. We'll let you know next week what the rescheduled date will be. In the meantime, stay safe, go help a neighbor and GO BILLS!
Thanks for your time.
Go do something nice for somebody.
We hope your day is filled with heart smiles. Many folks are stuck at home today surrounded by a few feet of a beautiful snow blanket. If you are bored and you do some online shopping today, could you shovel a way to Amazon Smile? Youth With A Purpose has an Amazon Smile link that helps to raise a few bucks to support our youth programs. Here is our YWAP Smile of the Day followed by our Amazon Smile link.
Thanks for all you do, we appreciate you.
It was an unbelievable outpouring of community collaboration that made this years YWAP and None Like You Thanksgiving a smashing success. Folks from all over WNY pitched in and created an evening of neighborly love. Thank you to everyone who was a part of our Thanksgiving.
The chickens were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of cooked turkeys danced in their heads.
Their nap might be short, they might be yanked out of bed,
YWAP was short on turkeys we may cook chickens instead.
In the blink of an eye and the beat of a heart,
Some neighbors gave the chickens a brand new start.
They appeared out of nowhere with turkeys in hand,
Our YWAP Thanksgiving would go on as planned.
Today at Holy Cross the hall will be filled,
With food and music new relationships we'll build.
Please come and join us and share your heartbeat,
Those who walk in peace have truly beautiful feet!
The Annual YWAP & None Like You Community Thanksgiving Celebration is today, Monday November 17, 2014 from 4 - 7 pm.

We will have tickets to the Bills Night Out as long as they last, there are only 198 left as of 9:12 am this morning. If you have questions, please call 716-830-8240. A man will answer and say: "Hello this is Bob, how may I help you?"
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
We hope your day is filled with heart smiles. Sometimes we feel the need to just drop you a line and give you an emotional nugget for your heart to chew on. Youth With A Purpose is a "Potential Development Organization."
A very wise YWAP Board member once said: "You have to protect the goalie." His analogy was related to protecting young women from becoming pregnant by a guy who would eventually become an absentee father. Young guys are looking to score with young ladies. All young people are born with enormous potential. Our goal at YWAP is to help young people get a head start in reaching their life potential. We teach young ladies how to demand respect from the guys. We teach guys how to respect the ladies.
We are "Potentiators" whose primary goal is to identify, protect, nurture and empower young people to reach for their full potential.
Thanks for your time.
