Send NOLA Kids to #AWrinkleInTime

$4,726 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 131 people in 3 months
Hi!

This fundraiser is to send 7th and 8th grade students from Arise Academy, my neighborhood public school in New Orleans, to see the film version of the classic kid's novel A WRINKLE IN TIME. The funds will go to buying tickets for the kids as well as the rental of a bus. (About $12 per kid.)  If we can raise more money than the original goal, we can send more kids!

Check out the trailer here. Oprah, y'all.

After viewing the film, the students can participate in creative writing exercises with another wonderful neighborhood organization, Big Class. (Their mission is to cultivate and support the voices of New Orleans' writers ages 6-18 through creative collaborations with schools and communities.)

Help send these bright NOLA kids to see this wonderful adaptation of this brilliant young adult science fiction novel!

Thanks so much!

Hi y'all, today is the day the kids are going to see the movie, and the buses just pulled up! They also got to do an interview with WWLTV this morning, and I will post a link to that if they post it on the internet. Attached are just a few pictures from this morning, from the interview and the West Bank AMC theater. Thank you all again so much for making this special day happen! I will post some more pics at the end of the day, <3
