BENEFITING: STOKED MENTORING
EVENT DATE: Nov 10, 2012
We've got a large and excited group of volunteers ready to go this Saturday, but as of right now we still have no way to get there. Bus companies are mostly booked, and those that do have a couple are charging $900-$1000 per bus... and we need 2 of them. We need to raise enough to get us all out there by Friday! Please consider donating - any amount at all - to help get our group out to the Rockaways. Thank you!
Kids have been out of school. Parks have gotten destroyed. Neighborhoods and businesses have been put out of commission.
STOKED is in a special position because we are the connecting point for many populations: high school students, action sports athletes, NYC professionals, perennial volunteers and schools. While most of New York has been put out of work, STOKED wants to use its position to motivate, mobilize, and give back by organizing an enormous service effort to help our local parks. But STOKED was affected too - our programs have stopped, and our kids, having been out of school and some even displaced by the storm, need more STOKED programs now more than ever.
Join our cause by helping us clean up our parks and sponsoring STOKED so that we can continue to provide the types of programs that empower and motivate youth across New York.
