BENEFITING: AWAKEN ARTS
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2013
With some awesome offline donations we were able to raise $5100 for our fundraiser and I had fun dying my hair blue. I think I may keep it.
Only 39 hours left an $333 to go to make $1000 over our goal. Thank you all for the anonymous donations as well as the many offline donations that we have received. And remember if we reach our goal I will dye my hair turquoise to in honor of The 24 Foundation. Help us reach our goal and spread the word!
After an awesome fundraiser run by Pi Gallery they were able to donate $215 offline. So that brings us closer to our goal. Only $441 left to raise to get $1000 over our fundraising goal.
Wooohooo! We reached our goal, but I want us to be set for our next group of participants. If I hit the $1850 mark, I will dye my hair turquoise in honor of The 24 Foundation. Let's keep it going!!
And a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped me reach my goal ($3,400) with online and offline donations, I adjusted the online amount based on the donations I received offline. It was the best birthday gift I could ask for. Now let's exceed the goal for an even better program next session.
It's my birthday! YAY! All of you know how much I love my brithday, but I love my foundation and the kids we help even more.
I started The 24 Foundation 4 years ago with the help of Rachel Burch and 10 amazing mentors for the kids at Sunburst Youth Academy. We use arts as a healing tool for people that have been through traumatic experiences. We have grown since then and with the help of many more mentors, we have helped over 1,200 kids through the arts and even started a pilot program with 8 combat veterans with PTSD.
This has been a tough fundraising season for us, but we are still committed to helping the 215 kids at Sunburst youth academy through our Catalyst program. My goal is to raise $3,400 to help fund our next program if we can do it by my birthday that gives us a few days to make this happen, but due to an amazing donation of $2,500 from First Financial Equity Corp I am lowering my fundraising goal to $900. If we can do it before the first day of session with the kids Oct 26th that would be amazing too! If we raise $1900 I will dye my hair turquoise in honor of the 24 Foundation.
So instead of presents this year $34 for my 34th birthday this session and it will go to this upcoming session of our arts program. But any amount will do, if you donate:
$0.34 (buys the paper for nametags for the kids)
$3.40 (buys colored pencils to share for 4 kids)
$34 (buys 2/3 of the supplies for the kids for all 4 days)
$340 (sends almost 7 kids through our program)
$3,400 (Will pay for all of the supplies, mentor recruitment/retention/training costs)
** If someone donates $3,400 or I make $1,000 over my fundraising goal with smaller donations by October 31st I will dye my hair Turquoise in honor of The 24 Foundation.
So donate what you can, it doesnt' even have to be $34, it can be any amount.
Thanks so much!!
