The generous donations received so far are enough to provide books to 34 agencies. All of the recipients have been contacted, and I am shipping books as soon as I receive mailing addresses and “attention to” information from the contacted agencies. Books are on their way to the 7 agencies listed below:
I STILL NEED YOUR HELP. I have the ambitious goal of providing free books to all 340 Basic Center, Transitional Living Programs, Maternity Group Homes, and Street Outreach Programs in the nation. We are currently 10% toward that goal, with 49 days left in the fundraiser. To those who have donated, thank you, and please share this information and encourage you social networks to contribute. If every “liker” of the InterNetwork for Youth Facebook page contributed $10.00, we’d succeed with this fundraiser and provide a much-needed resource to much deserving agencies. Here are some of the comments I’ve received when contacting agencies:
Thank you for your support! Let’s make this happen.
In less than a day, we've raised $245.00 towards the goal of sending every Basic Center, Transitional Living, and Street Outreach Program a free copy of Street Culture 2.0. That's just under 25 of the 340 targeted agencies. I need to wait until funds are transferred to begin shipping, which should be in about a week. I'll keep you all posted as the books begin to ship!
