The kids at Sarah's Hope shelter are experiencing a lot of upheaval in their lives as their moms are finding jobs and working to save up a deposit on a new place for them to live.

What's the plan?

Here's the breakdown on our goalposts:

 - $150 or less - A Black Panther comics party - If we only get this far, we'll have a party with cupcakes, some cosplayers and make-your-own comics activities
 - $150 - $449 - A better party, plus we stock the shelter with BP books and toys
 - $450 - A party, plus every kid gets a BP book
 - $450 - $749 - A better party, every kid gets a book and we stock the shelther with BP books and toys
- $750 - Every kid and their mom gets an anytime ticket voucher for the local theatre.
- $750 - $850 - BP party AND tickets for all 
- $850 - $1000 Tickets for everyone, a party AND books/toys for the shelter.

***Achievement Unlocked: NEW GOALS!***

From here we move on to the Sandtown-Winchester location. It's twice as large, and holds dads too, not just kids and moms. It has 150 people, people who could really use a trip to the movies. 

 - $1000 - $1,499 -  We stock the Mount Street location with an array of books and toys for all ages.
- $1,500 - a Black Panther book for each kid in the Sandtown-Winchester location.
 - $1,501 - $1,999 - Black Panther books for every kid in the Sandtown-Winchester location AND a collection of books and toys for the shelter
- $2,000 - $2,399 - Black Panther books for every kid in the Sandtown-Winchester location AND a collection of books and toys for the shelter AND a Black Panther themed party for the kids
 - $2400 - Send ALL the families inthe Sandtown-Winchester location, to the movies <3  
 - $2400 - $2500 - Sandtown goes to the movies AND gets stocked with  of books and toys
 - $2,500 - $3000 - Sandtown goes to the movies AND gets stocked with a full set of books and toys, AND gets a Black Panther themed party with  cosplayers and fun activities

$3,000+  Wakanda Forever!!
Seriously can we do this? I don't even know but from here out we just knock out the shelter wishlists and make everyday life a little easier, OR to their summer program, which strives to keep the kids entertained, active while school is out. Shelter admins will choose where their need is greatest.


Can we do it?

We've already delivered the tickets to the first shelter and books, toys and party supplies for the first shelter are coming together.

  What we've got so far:
What have we done before?

With the help of crowdfunding, we've brought 8 excellent parties so far, including a visit from an ice cream truck handing out free ice cream, mermaids and water slides, pirate entertainers, dress-up superhero SuperPortraits and more.

This goal is bigger than anything we've done so far, but I think it would be better for these kids than anything I could devise, and this is a movie for breaking records.


I'd like to wrap up fundraising in two  weeks, so that there's plenty of time for them to plan their trips while the movie is still in theatres.

About the organizer

Just who are you indirectly throwing your dollars at? My name's Erin, I organize a group of volunteers loosely referred to as the Birthday Club (the parties originally honored the kids whose birthdays were that month) that throws awesome parties to brighten the days of the kids at this shelter.
