Once upon a time we were fallin in love...
Total Eclipse is competing in an exciting event in June - a "Karaoke Battle Benefit" for my community organization, POWER! The event is happening on June 13th and our team will create a karaoke performance to compete against other teams for prizes and glory!
We really need you tonight!
This event will be truly fun, but the real reason I'm a part of it is to help raise some funding for POWER. Our goal is to gather $750 in donations from our family and friends (you!!) to help POWER raise $10,000 through this event. Please click on DONATE button to give $10, $25, $50, $100 or more to help us meet my goal. Or you can send a check to me, made out to POWER. (POWER's new mailing address is: 2145 Keith Street, SF, CA 94124)
With that $10,000, POWER will train 20 low-income youth of color to be community organizers and leaders this summer! POWER is holding its 4th annual E4LS (Education 4 Liberation School) this June with 20 youth who really want to make a change in their neighborhoods and schools.
E4LS is a month-long program, very intensive, with guest speakers, outings, interactive workshops, and many chances for youth to put new skills into practice. After the program, the E4LS graduates will lead youth organizing efforts to transform San Francisco's public transit system - this year they will focus on making the Free Muni for Youth (free bus transit for youth ages 5 to 17) pilot program permanent! Several of the youth who've graduated from this program in the past have gone on to win the 'Youth Warrior' award from the Cit of San Francisco!
The program costs money - stipends for youth participants, food, materials, transportation. Please help us raise $750 by June 13th by donating to our team page today!
