THE STORY:

Greetings dear Family, Friends, and random (and awesome) allies throughout social media!

As some of you may know, I have two social startups I am looking to get off the ground, one is an online community for women who are often ignored within the wider faith-based community and the other is an idea for communal elder care facilities to hopefully change the way we care for the elderly in America (no matter their socioeconomic status). I'm excited to announce that I was accepted as a Fellow in StartingBloc’s Los Angeles Institute early next year. 

What is StartingBloc you ask? A non-profit organization that believes a small, committed group of people can change the world! They will link me up with the people, training and resources I need to lead me in the right direction.

Thing is, I need your help to bring me one step closer to my dream. (This is where I ask for money, which I don't usually do) The tuition for this institute is $1,250 and any amount would be appreciated. If 125 kind souls donate $10 or 50 people give $25, I will reach my goal and be on my way to learning from other passionate change makers who want to make a positive social impact. Any amount will be a grand help and I promise to give back whatever I gain from this grand opportunity!

More about StartingBloc-

On February 18th, 2016, 100 StartingBloc Candidates will gather in Los Angeles, California, for the LA '16 Institute for Social Innovation. At the LA '16 StartingBloc Institute, Fellows will participate in a series of workshops and activities designed to inspire, instruct, and stretch their limits. They'll learn directly from high impact change leaders, work with proven frameworks for delivering change, and build relationships with a community of lifelong allies. Please note: the 'Event date' is the last day for fundraising and when fees for the institute are due. The StartingBloc Institute begins on February 18th!
