My birthday is on April 25th, and I want to dedicate it to a good cause.  Help me celebrate by supporting my "Birthday Wish" for Determined to Succeed: an educational nonprofit that identifies motivated, low-income middle school students who show an exceptional determination to succeed but who are at risk of getting lost in the public school system.  The goal is 100% college admission and graduation for our students and your donation will go a long way in making that possible.  I've started this wish to help get more people involved and aware of Determined to Succeed. That's why I'll match the donations made on this Wish up to $10,000!

Pitching in just $10 or more will make you eligible to win some great prizes, including:

  • A seat at a table read for The Simpsons as my guest (1 available)
  • Signed Simpsons Script (1 available)
  • I'll record your outgoing voicemail message in the Simpsons character of your choosing (3 available)
  • Signed Simpsons Toys (10 available)

Funds raised through my Birthday Wish will help pay for summer programs for our Determined To Succeed students like:

  • UCLA Unicamp - 35 Determined To Succeed middle school and high school students attend overnight camp for a week in Big Bear. For many of our students this will be the first time they are away from their families.
  • Playwriting/Performance Workshop - 2 weeks where students write, produce and act in their original plays.
  • Science Center 3D Animation camp -A week-long camp for our middle school students to explore the world of science and animation.

Your contribution could help change these young students' lives. Please watch the video above and consider donating to this amazing organization right here on this page. Thank you, come again!
