BENEFITING: StartingBloc NFP
EVENT DATE: May 24, 2012
As some of you know, I have recently been accepted into a fellowship program called StartingBloc; a leadership development program aims to give social innovators 'the tools they need to address the most pressing global challenges of our time' (read: change the world). You might call it a cross between a social entrepreneurship boot camp and an idea incubator.
StartingBloc has selected me to be a part of their Boston 2012 Institute for Social Innovation because they trust that investing in me will ultimately make the world a better place. BUT in order for me to attend the institute, I need to raise the $1000 tuition fee for the 5 day institute by March 15th. SO I am asking for you to consider investing in me.
Your contribution will help me:
* acquire the tools and skills I need to turn all of my crazy ideas about how to save the world (if you know me, you know exactly what I mean) into real, actionable solutions
* plug in to a dynamic community of 1500 passionate, dynamic, innovative individuals
NOW, to add a bit of a twist... I would like to begin my quest to make the world a better place by doing a very simple thing: making people smile! Here's where you come in. Every time I recieve a donation, I will wear some manner of silly attire in public in honor of my benefactor! Check out my posted photos for more specifics.
