About Sheryl Lynn Foundation

Support me, support them! 💞

Welcome to SLF's Patreon page, which allows me, Sheryl Lynn - founder of SLF - to commit fulltime to my #1 passion of being of service and sharing my heart with our younger generation. For the past 12 years I've been doing this on a voluntary and part-time basis through the various projects of the Sheryl Lynn Foundation, focused on education & empowerment of children living in poverty in the Philippines. I’m now taking a leap of faith, hoping to turn this passion into a self-sustainable & full-time commitment, so I can run the foundation and serve the youth in the best way possible.

Children hold the key to the future of our world and with the evolution of consciousness on the planet, this young generation holds a powerful potential for change, if given the chance. Being half Filipina, it naturally made sense for me to be of service in the Philippines, where the need for help is great, but I also hope to someday offer means of support to kids on a global scale. For now, the Filipino youth have stolen my heart; I've witnessed the challenges that poverty brings them, but I've also seen their drive & resilience as an integral part of the culture they grow up in. It's inspiring.

Up to now, I've used my career in entertainment as a DJ, host and beauty queen ( Miss Netherlands 2006 & Mrs. Globe 2013) as a platform for SLF and I graduated with honors in Cultural Anthropology & Development Sociology from Leiden University as an investment in the foundation as well. The goal in mind has always been SLF, however, the majority of my time had to be prioritised towards the means to this end: my studies & my career. The result has been - at times - a sense of falling behind and missing opportunities to maximise SLF's potential, although I'm of course very grateful for the children & families we were able to help so far with the support of amazing board members, volunteers, donors & local partners.

After a time of going inward due to some personal challenges which we all seem to go through in life, it became clear to me that in order to truly realise the highest vision for SLF and make the foundation grow, I have to reorganise & reprioritise my endeavours. So I've decided to make SLF my fulltime commitment and learned to accept that it is okay to be compensated for my time in order to sustain myself while doing so. And with this, I humbly ask for your help.

Since SLF is still a relatively small foundation it does not make sense yet to have any paid staff, but in order for SLF to grow and reach more youth, the foundation does need a capable CEO that is fully committed to fundraising, marketing, PR, project execution and all other management & administrative tasks. I know with every fibre of my being that this is what I am meant to be doing, but so far I've only been able to do so much, as I simultaneously had to put my focus elsewhere to make a living.

Setting up this Patreon page will hopefully allow me to fully devote my time & talent to the service of SLF, by getting the financial support to do so. I sincerely hope that you will become a patron of this legacy that I've been building since 2007, allowing me to realise a long-cherished dream & vision to the fullest. Please visit SLF's website and watch the video above (click CC for English subtitles) to have an idea of the foundation's work so far.

I'm leaving for the Philippines mid-January, aiming to connect with as many school children as possible, providing school supplies where needed the most and conducting empowerment workshops to expand children's awareness in regards to self-worth and knowing their true creative power within. By becoming a patron today and selecting your preferred membership level, you make it possible for me to free up my time to prepare & execute this project for the months to come.

You can of course also make a donation through SLF's website to fund the project directly and if you are perhaps interested to make a corporate donation, please  contact me to discuss collaboration options. Last but not least, it would mean a lot if you could share my Patreon page and the accompanying video in your network or on social media.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for all your support and for believing in me & this cause!

Sending much love,

Sheryl Lynn 🌸
