Civilizing the Barbarians 2015-16

It's a silly thing, but we could use some help starting off the school year right for our boys. Connor and Griffin are going into eighth and fourth grades, respectively, which makes Jess want to sit in a corner, read Proust, and cry.

We got them first-day clothes at Goodwill for a good deal, but supplies add up. Grandma Jenny bought them great new school shoes when she visited this summer, but we don't get support (or contact, really) from Jess' family.

We're offering a few backer levels, just for the hell of it, but if there's something you'd like Cam or Jess to do for you that's not listed, just mention it in the comments or catch us on twitter (@boymonster and @profbanks).

Any money beyond the cost of supplies will go toward extracurricular lessons and educational field trips, which will be documented for your entertainment on social media.

Hi folks. Sorry for any confusion, but we haven't been given $720. That's from when I used the page to fundraise for Activist Boot Camp 3 years ago. I reset the goal, but can't get the funding bar to reset. :(

Please, keep the donations and signal boost going! I really want to help my fellow Safe Schools leader Katrina get the same phenomenal training I do!

Thanks so much for helping me reach my goal! Please continue to help me boost signal, so I can donate any funds raised above my tuition to help bring my friend and lead Safe Schools organizer Katrina along for the same, invaluable training!

Thank you all so much! You're making a dream of mine come true, and I can't wait to share everything I'll learn and all the ways I grow. (Also, I'm already curious how I can gamify the lessons I learn. Stay tuned to the blog in July for more on this.)
