This Foster Care Awareness Month, The Do Gud Clothing is partnering with CASA of Los Angeles to advocate for children and families in LA County’s overburdened child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Join the Do Gud Lapathon to help raise $15,000 in support of the most vulnerable children in our community. Together, we can make a difference!
Growing up in the foster system presented me with a less than 4% chance to graduate from college with a bachelor’s degree. With no one to advocate for me, the system chewed me up and spit me out. I was fortunate enough to find a family that nurtured me and gave me the tools to succeed. Many are not as lucky as me.
Starting DoGud is my vehicle to serve the foster children who don’t get a fair chance at success. Here at DoGud, we wear the mask because we represent a faceless population that is often forgotten. It is my life mission to better foster youth’s current outcomes by creating more opportunities of success for a population that all too often goes unnoticed.
