BENEFITING: COMMUNITY-WORD PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2012
Help me celebrate my birthday...I mean week...I mean 2 weeks! For the week leading up to my birthday -- September 28 -- and the week following, in lieu of gifts or a big get-together, what I really would like is for my dear friends to put that money towards supporting my organization, Community-Word Project.
If you can give $10, $25, or -- if you love me that much -- $100, every dollar will make a difference to Community-Word Project and the kids we serve. In fact, to put my money where my mouth is, I will match your donation out of my own pocket (up to a certain amount of course! I am still an overworked, underpaid non-profit staffer). So come celebrate with me by making a difference in the lives of NYC youth!
Community-Word Project is a New York City not-for-profit organization that uses professional artists to inspire at-risk youth to read, interpret, and respond to their world through creative writing, poetry, and visual and performance arts. This year, we are helping 2,000 public school students become engaged in creative learning through the arts.
