Our California South (CALSO) Junior Optimist International (JOI) District Governor, Timothy Jordan, has identified a critical need of the homeless in our communities. Timothy has organized a GoFundMe campaign as a CALSO JOI Districtwide virtual community service project. All funds raised during this CALSO Junior Optimists Districtwide Winter Blanket Fundraising Drive will go to the local ‘Alpha Project’ nonprofit organization for the purchase of blankets for the homeless. Please read JOI Governor Timothy Jordan’s forwarded message below, and view his attachment to this message. All CALSO JOI Club members, Optimist Club members, friends, relatives, and others are invited to join in and participate in this worthy Optimist community service project by giving whatever you can contribute to this GoFundMe campaign. Please share this opportunity with everyone!

From Timothy Jordan
It’s CALSO JOI District Governor Timothy Jordan here! I hope each and every one of you is having a great holiday season and are staying safe amidst the current times.
Usually, we all would get together for a project and have our quarterly meeting in person, but due to the circumstances, we are unable to do that. However, we have the incredible opportunity to meet virtually and have a virtual service project. For this quarter we will be having a GoFundMe drive to raise money for the Alpha Project. Here are the basics of our project:
CALSO Junior Optimists Districtwide Winter Blanket Fundraising Drive
- Who: Anyone can donate! Share with your friends and family!
- When: December 10th – January 23rd
- Where: This GoFundMe link -> gf.me/u/zcbdws
- Why: Raise money for the Alpha Project in San Diego
- Goal: Raise 5000 dollars
The Alpha Project is a nonprofit organization that serves the homeless right here in San Diego. During the winter months and the pandemic, the people of the community need our help and optimism more than ever! I encourage you all to share this fundraiser and attached PDF with friends and family so they can donate to this worthy cause!
On the last day of our drive, we will be having our quarterly JOI district meeting over Zoom to discuss Optimists activities from the quarter. Zoom information will come in a later email.
Please reach out to me via email if you have any questions! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
