Give Kids a Path to Safer Lives

Donation protected
Hundreds of underprivileged  NYC children have been working hard on their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programs to design & build soap box derby cars to race in Central Park on Father's Day. This race is perilously close to not happening...

If we do not reach our goal in the next 10 DAYS, final entrie$ cannot be submitted, permit$ cannot  filed & other fee$ cannot be paid. We NEED YOUR HELP NOW so the  Central Park can actually happen for the children. 

Absolutely EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR helps!  We are a 501(c)3 organization so your donation is tax-deductible.

I am super passionate about this because we know 1000 Feet Project opens doors for underprivileged children & mobilizes their communities!  (Just watch the video...)

The children not only learn STEM skills that improve their education & career prospects, the program also teaches them responsibility, teamwork, builds character & self-esteem.  And they have FUN!   I would be heartbroken if the first reward for all their hard work is disappointment.
