Crowdfunding Success and Chimes for Change Launch

 

We are very pleased to announce that we’re starting 2017 with a bang. Thanks to YOU, we met (actually surpassed) our 10K goal and raised $11,300 during our end of year crowdfunder. What an inspiring way to end 2016 and begin a new year and new program. Thank you to everyone who donated and has supported our work along the way. We are so grateful for YOU!

These are some of the questions we asked students during the first week of our new Chimes for Change program at Larchmont High School. And thanks to our new iPads and partnership with SKIES, an interactive learning app developed by Cal Tech grads, students were able to answer these questions and see their answers posted alongside their classmates in real time.

This is just one of many exciting developments we’re bringing to our new and improved Chimes for Change program. Here are some others:

  • We finally have our own student tech devices (Thank you LUSH Charity Pot!)
  • Instead of just one, several professional artist mentors are involved in lending their expertise to this program. Learn more about each of them here.
  • We’ll be taking students to neighborhood council meetings to take our change-making abilities one step further. 

And this is just the beginning! Because of these changes and even more we’ll reveal as the semester progresses, this is sure to be our most impactful program ever.
