EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2013
It's my birthday, and since most of you are obviously planning on showering me with expensive gifts (Faberge' Eggs, Renoir's, Solid Gold Bullion, etc) I thought it would make more sense to have your precious dollars go to a slightly better cause than stuffing our apartment with unnecessary and expensive wares.
I am a big supporter and board member of Camp/Interactive (www.ciny.org). CI's year-round programs introduce inner-city, at-risk youth to the creative power of technology. We use cutting-edge tech education tools to provide students with the skills and opportunities they need to succeed, and instill the leadership qualities necessary to achieve their potentials.
Our modular, project-based curriculum provides an adaptive learning environment in which the students will flourish and focus on teamwork, self-confidence and sense of community. This dynamic experience prepares them to thrive through ambiguity in their academics and kickstarts success in their professional careers.
We need all the help we can get to grow this program to impact more kids in New York City, and eventually march towards a national expansion in 2014. It's an exciting and effective program and every penny counts.
Please help make my birthday extra special by helping Camp/Interactive grow!
