BENEFITING: Goodcity NFP
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2013
Help us get urban teenagers from under-resourced communities in Chicago into a nurturing environment by offering them paid summer internships at Urban Threads Studio NFP, where they will learn the life-time skill of sewing, textile art, and fashion design as well as entrepreneurial skills to market their wares. Volunteers will sew a omiyage chrysanthemum (Japanese gift wrap pochettes) for every donor who contributes to a summer internship. Every $1000 will represent one summer-long internship.
