Support BOOST by Born Just Right

$3,550 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 50 people in 5 months

Hi! I’m Jordan Reeves, and I’m the co-founder of Born Just Right. It’s a non-profit that helps kids with disabilities learn how to combine their differences with design. We hold workshops where cool ideas come true like my invention of a 3D printed Project Unicorn that shoots biodegradable glitter!

These are the kids who attended our most recent workshop in San Francisco. It was featured on NBC Nightly News!

My friend, Anaiss, came up with a simple way to lift her wheelchair a little so she can reach stuff. Sydney is working on an LED light system that works with her BMX racing bike arm. Kenzie created a beautiful arm that has a light up gem called “Operation Crystal.” That's just some of the cool ideas that came out of our five-day event.

Every year, I don’t ask for birthday gifts. Instead, I ask for donations to organizations that matter to me. This year, I turned THIRTEEN on December 29th! In honor of turning into an official teenager, I hope to raise enough to help the launch of a new BOOST by Born Just Right workshop in 2019.

I'm asking for $4500 because it takes at least $3500 for one local kid to attend a BOOST event. Participants and one parent do not have to pay to attend. Here's a look at the big cost breakdown:

(And thanks to Autodesk for these great photos)

If you're curious, I have a book coming out on June 4, 2019. It is the same name as our nonprofit, BORN JUST RIGHT. The book all about my story and it includes how I created Project Unicorn. I hope I encourage all kinds of kids to come up with fun ideas. The book is already available for pre-sale !

Thanks to your donations, we held the coolest two-day BOOST by Born Just Right workshop last weekend in Cambridge, MA.

With the support of Microsoft New England's Garage maker space and the Cambridge Innovation Center, eight people learned how to come up with design ideas and build prototypes. We even got to present at the Cambridge Science Festival! Check out the details here: https://www.bornjustright.org/boost-workshop-presents-prototypes-to-the-cambridge-science-festival/

Your donations made this possible. Thank you.

If you believe in our work, please consider donating again or spread the word to others. Or connect us to possible sponsors! Once we have enough donations, we can set up our next workshop.

Hi, everyone!
It's TEN days until I turn 13. I know I haven't sent enough updates lately but I would love your help getting the word out about this fundraiser before I run out of time.

Our Born Just Right organization is working on a really cool event in April. Your donations will help make it happen. Hopefully, I can share more details about it soon!

Thank you again for all of your support. I can't wait for my birthday and for all the cool things happening in 2019.
