Want to become The Fuller Center’s next junior ambassador?

In what The Fuller Center for Housing hopes will become an annual tradition, we are looking for a 2011 Junior Ambassador. He or she will volunteer to deliver a holiday greeting message in a video to be hosted on our website and shared with Fuller Center friends around the world. The Sumter Players, our local theater group in our headquarters town of Americus, Ga., will help us by hosting our inaugural Fuller Center Junior Ambassador Search at the historic Rylander Theatre.

We are looking for an articulate, effervescent child (ages 7-11) who would like to deliver such a message for us. Each child will appear in a conference room before a panel of local judges who will choose our Junior Ambassador. One child will be chosen and contacted by email or phone that evening. Every child who appears before the judges will receive a certificate for participating. In addition to appearing in our holiday video message, our Junior Ambassador will receive four passes to the Sumter Players’ May production of "Charlotte’s Web" and Fuller Center merchandise.

Hi, I’m (name here), this year’s junior ambassador for The Fuller Center for Housing.

The Fuller Center teams up with families to repair and build houses in more than 60 U.S. cities and 17 countries around the world.

This Christmas, more than 1,500 families will celebrate the holidays in a home built or repaired by The Fuller Center, giving kids just like me a safe and decent place to lay their heads at night.

Millard Fuller, our founder, said: “Love makes things blossom and allows little children to become all that God intended them to be. Children given the opportunity to grow up in a decent home may even change the world.”

Unfortunately, millions of children do not have a decent home. Please go to fullercenter.org and find out how you can help change that.

And with your help, a child just might be able to change the world.

On behalf of everyone at The Fuller Center for Housing, I’d like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thank you and God bless! (HUGE SMILE!)

We'd love to hear your comments!
