BENEFITING: EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC
On October 14, I will NOT be turning 40! This is cause for celebration! Let's do it by raising $4000 for YEA Camp and getting us to over 4000 Likes on Facebook!
Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a life-changing summer camp for world-changing teens! We train and support ambitious, progressive teens from around the country who want to make a difference. Our campers typically describe YEA Camp as one of the best experiences of their lives and one they know will be influential in their development as activists. Read about our amazing summer of 2014 here and check out this 2 minute video to learn more!
Raising $4,000 would fund our scholarship program to pay for 10 dedicated low-income teens to attend YEA Camp in 2015, supporting them in years of activism in the future! In case you were wondering and want to help blow this goal out of the water, raising $40,000 would transform our program! In addition to funding these scholarships and more, we could grow to offer online programs, teacher trainings, and more expanded year-round support for young activists.
And bringing our Facebook followers to over 4,000 would help us expand our reach as we cheer on our campers' successes and seek to inspire more activism. You can "Like" YEA Camp on FB and invite others at www.facebook.com/YEACamp.
Thank you so much for your support and birthday gifts! <3
P.S. YEA Camp is a fiscally sponsored 501(c)3 project of the amazing Earth Island Institute, hence EII listed as the beneficiary.
