A Wrinkle in Time with 100 Girls

$5,325 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 73 people in 1 month
My friend Taylor Richardson aka Astronaut StarBright (FB) has inspired me to organize my own special movie screening for Disney's A Wrinkle in Time (see trailer below).  Taylor just raised over $20,000 to send 1000 girls to a special screening of the movie in her hometown of Jacksonville, FL.  She issued a challenge for others to do the same thing.  I want to help 100 girls in Athens, GA to see this great movie that stars a girl who is really smart and who is trying to find her father who is lost in time.  Like Taylor, she loves science.  Please donate to my GoFundMe page and help me bring a great story, a great book, great food, special guests and ice cream to some STEM girls in Athens.  Help me show  these girls the same love and support that Taylor will show Jacksonville. I will take donations from any person or Athens area organization or groups! It will cost about $50 to give my guests a nice dinner, move and a copy of the book, A Wrinkle in Time.  Taylor herself is making plans to join us at the screening.  There will be other surprise guests at the screening so you don't want to miss it.  We have about 3 weeks to make event happen for these smart and deserving girls! Help me show the world why Athens is the coolest city in the world!

Thanks to everyone who donated to my campaign! My screening of the movie, A Wrinkle in Time was held on Sunday, March 11th. Over 100 girls showed up along with their chaperones who were parents, teachers, principals, counselor and mentors! The food was delicious, entertainment and speakers were amazing, and the movie was spectacular. I want to give a special thanks to Mrs. Sarah Amico. She is the donor who matched my donations until I met my goal. She even accepted my challenge and attended my screening.
