I rarely make fundraising appeals on HH, but Root Division, the San Francisco-based arts education and residency program that I am a part of, needs some (cash money) love.
Please take a moment to watch the short video about RD's Youth Education program and to read the excerpted appeal below. If you have a little capital to contribute in these tight-belt times, Root Division would appreciate it, I would appreciate it, and, most importantly, alotta kids who don't know you would appreciate it...and that's one of the highest forms of giving.
The Root Division Youth Education After-School Project aims to provide 250 kids who wouldn't otherwise receive an arts education with 10-weeks of arts workshops each, at four different after-school programs in San Francisco. We serve diverse groups of students, most of which are low-income and attend schools within the San Francisco Unified School District. Partner schools include Cesar Chavez Elementary, Horace Mann Middle School, Seven Tepees Youth Program, and Mission Education Center, a K-5 school for students who have recently immigrated to the U.S. from Spanish-speaking countries.
