BENEFITING: Belle Isle Conservancy
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 fourth org is the Friends of Belle Isle. http://www.fobi.org/
"The Friends of Belle Isle is a voluntary organization which promotes the preservation of natural beauty, restoration and preservation of historical sites, and the adaptive use of existing structures on the island for the enjoyment and use by all people. "
