BENEFITING: Choices Education Group
We bootstrapped a trial version of a cell phone texting game to help teens make better choices about their education and future. More than 6,000 teens have played the game, and more than 63% of survey respondents told us they'd make different choices as a result of playing. We're now ready to create the full game, so we need the cash to do it. (It's not a smartphone app since many of the teens we serve don't have 'em.)
Most people don't realize that teens who drop out of school not only create a very difficult life for themselves, but create huge health care, welfare and prison costs. Guess who pays for that...all of us taxpayers...and it adds up to $2 billion per day (yes, you read that right)!
So help us take our awesome new game to scale. If you make a donation we'll give you the codes to play the trial version of the game yourself. If you give over $25 you'll get a cool CHOICES Dog Tag, and if you give over $100 we'll write and record a tribute song about you! Tell us who you are and why you gave, and you'll get your own tune as an mp3, based on an oldie your mom and dad danced to.
