100% Y'all are the best ever!!
March 22, 2016
Help me spread donut love the Baltimore way! As an advid baker and social entrepreneur, it is my dream to start a worker-owner collaborative donut shop in Baltimore, Maryland. As an advocate of criminal justice reform, my donut shop will hope to employ former youth and adult offenders in providing sustainable employment and financial empowerment. StartingBloc is the next step in my continued devlopment as a social impact innovator!
80 StartingBloc Candidates will gather in New Orleans, Louisiana, for the NOLA '16 Institute for Social Innovation. At the NOLA '16 StartingBloc Institute, we will participate in a series of workshops and activities designed to inspire, instruct, and stretch our limits. We'll learn directly from high impact change leaders, work with proven frameworks for delivering change, and build relationships with a community of lifelong allies.
StartingBloc has graciously awarded me a partial tuition scholarship, but I still need your help to cover the remaining tuition and lodging cost. I'm making this work on a budget y'all and every little bit counts, no penny wasted! If you know me, you know how dedicated I am to bettering my community and hope you can support me in my vision for a better Baltimore.
All donated funds are deposited directly into StartingBloc's account, and are donations towards individual Institute tuitions. Any dollars raised over the target goal will be considered a donation to StartingBloc's general funds, rather than tuition raised for the Fellow you are supporting. Please contact the Fellow personally to donate beyond the fundraising goal.
Please note: the 'Event date' is the last day for fundraising and when fees for the institute are due. The StartingBloc Institute begins on May 19th!
