Run for the GoodBrain Project

Greetings friends - 

I'm running my first half marathon ever (aaa!!), and I want every step to make a difference. For Real. Let's help The GoodBrain Project - an outstanding organization that's part of the national initiave to re-imagine the business of teaching + learning.

Your gift activates the dreams of these high school juniors -ambassadors from New York City with big college aspirations. They'll gain multi-genre writing, mindfulness training, and the coolest kind of learning around: listening to others, and connecting with their power to influence the world around them. 

You can transform a LIFE. With every click of a button. Seriously, NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL to provide students with opportunities worthy of their potential.

Some ideas:

$2 per mile (13.1m) or $26  = pair of eye glasses / tech resources, school/work uniforms

$15 per mile or $196.50 = a college visit / tutoring sessions

Every $1000 raised covers 25 Ambassadors for a day-long writing and critical reading Institute. 

THANK YOU for being enormous and exercising YOUR potential to be the change this world needs. 

Love and light - and wish me fleet feet and lots of luck!
