ARAS projects and programs are lifelines to people around
the world. Whether it is a terminal patient in distress or a homeless
family in need of food and shelter, ARAS is there with volunteers, funding,
and referrals to help and to heal. Over the years we have conducted personal-empowerment
workshops, provided several thousand bikes for poor African villagers,
and presented full wardrobes of clothes, books and groceries to thousands
of struggling people and their families at our annual Harvest Festival.
ARAS supports many other organization’s projects through volunteer
assistance. Every year ARAS gives communities the tools and resources
to change the journey from surviving to thriving. Because we understand
the value that comes from community service, we constantly guide volunteers,
providing them opportunities through the worthy projects of ARAS and other
Plainly speaking however, in order to continue our work, we need money.
Companies such as Microsoft give ARAS matching funds for employee donations
and employee volunteer time. Please ask if your employer will match your
contribution. Also, when giving through United Way, you may designate
that your United Way donation goes to the work of The ARAS Foundation.
Please, consider today, a tax-exempt gift to the ARAS Foundation. We love
doing what we do and need your help to keep these projects active:
Dealing with Poverty:
ARAS organizes and presents programs every year, through which
thousands of underprivileged people and their families are treated to
free wardrobes of clothing, groceries, books, toys, massages, chiropractic
adjustments and haircuts.
The ARAS Literacy Campaign collects and delivers thousands of books,
videos, and other educational materials to those in poverty as well as
to prison inmates and their families.
Teaching for Success:
We know a lack of Clarity, Courage and Confidence are direct reasons for
chronic poverty and oppression. Bob Trask Programs are legendary for their
effectiveness in expanding minds and uplifting the lives of people ranging
from CEOs of international corporations and professional athletes to teenagers
in poor neighborhoods. These courses, by developing Clarity, Courage and
Confidence, are expanding the lives of millions from all walks of life.
ARAS has, for 25 years, been making important improvements in the lives
of people in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Columbia, Peru, Brazil, Japan, Korea,
Taiwan, The Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and
China. Our value is not only through training programs, but also through
our donations to orphanages as well as the collecting and preparing hundreds
of new and used bicycles for poverty villages in Africa and other countries
where lack of transportation deprives families from jobs and schools.
Maintaining a strong volunteer program is essential to the health of any
community, especially for children and teens who discover how much their
contributions enrich those less fortunate than they. Because we understand
the value that comes from community service, we constantly train volunteers
and provide volunteer opportunities through ARAS projects and the valuable
projects of other organizations.

make a world of difference!”
