Creatively saving the kids and stopping the violence
Organized by: Clari Walbridge
My name is Clari and the cause I have is to stop the violence. Even though I know it wont all end,but I want to help keep the children off these streets. My vision is to have a facility, like rec center where the kids can come and unwind and seek shelter and food when they need too. I WAS a kid out there, in MPLS, MN. I roamed those very streets where all those people and children are being shot. It's my home, and I feel like I want to help put a stop to this senseless violence that's going in my very own backyard. In this facility, I want it to be a fun, creative place for children to express themselves, and still be alive to go home and see their parents, or stay there and have their parent's visit them. I also want to be able to feed them. I want these children to believe that the world isn't as mean as it looks, and as surreal as it sounds, black or white, kids lives should not be lost, at any cause. I know this won't stop all the violence but it will help give the children a safe haven of some sort, so they DON'T have to be in the streets. I really need your help, to help me help save the youth of my hometown and make an impact on them, and inspire them to be more.
I also want this facility to hold fundraisers for the schools of my hometown whom's creative and athletic departments are being cut.
