Please join me and the Game Theory Academy/WOW Farm staff as we rally our friends and family to support this great organization's work on "Giving Tuesday," an antidote to the excessive shopping now associated with Thanksgiving weekend.
We just wrapped up our fourth year of the WOW Farm Youth Program. Thirty youth reaped the benefits of our farm/business teaching program in 2015. With your help we are hoping to serve even more students in the coming year.
For the latest glowing ink about our project please take a look at the current issue of Edible East Bay: http://edibleeastbay.com/online-magazine/winter-holidays-2015/a-tale-of-two-west-oakland-farms/
The staff goal is to raise $500 each, which will raise $5,000 we can use to create and support excellent youth opportunities in Oakland.
$1,000 funds a four-month WOW Farm internship stipend for one teenager that she can deposit into her savings account to save for college.
$300 buys work gloves our 30 WOW Farmers to protect their hands from cuts and other injuries.
$95 services the WOW Farm port-o-potty for a month. Who wants to endow our potty? You!
$75 buys one pair of overalls so a WOW Farm intern can look and feel like bona fide farmer.
$10 buys one bed of seeds that we can transform into five cases of produce the WOW youth interns can grow and sell for $120.
