BENEFITING: Communities in Schools of Detroit, Inc.
You’ve heard the big buzz about erecting a Robocop statue in Detroit. There are plenty of reasons not to, and even more when you realize a huge chunk of metal will cost $50,000. That’s $50,000 that could be used for really good things. Instead, let’s raise $50,000 for 5 organizations that move our city, 5 real Detroit heros, instead of purchasing a fictional champion who’s never done much for Detroit.
Let’s not erect a huge memorial to standing stagnant instead of moving our city forward.
So here’s the plan, let’s donate $10,000 each to 5 worthy Detroit organizations, ones we’ve seen in action saving the city.

"THE FIVE BASICS
Our work is guided by the Five Basic Principles of CIS.
They assert that...
Every child needs and deserves:
• A personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
• A safe place to learn and grow
• A marketable skill to use upon graduation
• A healthy start and a healthy future
• A chance to give back to peers and community"
