BENEFITING: COACTIVE CONNECTIONS
CoActive Connections is dedicated to heightening awareness of the poverty experience through education.
What is the most effective type of education you ask???
A simulation I say! When you go through a simulation you typically remember 90% of the information shared! How much will you remember when I just stand in front of a room and talk to you? 20%! (on a good day :-)
So, we are wanting to raise $2500 to purchase a pre-designed simulation kit.
"Why do you not just design one yourself ?" you ask with furrowed brow and apparently itchy scalp. I know that answer! We have done the math and it would cost us a minimum of $72,000 to do so ( that is our next project!).
"Wow!" you say! $2500 is the best bargain I have come across in a long time. Who do I write that check to?" And then you click on the appropriate choices to DONATE to this fundraiser with a sense of fulfillment and optimism!
Your monetary contribution, every little bit counts, will be applied toward addressing stigma and stereotyping of people experiencing poverty in Oregon. It is a win-win!!!
