Sponsor a teen: March for Our Lives

$3,500 of $3,740 goal

Raised by 70 people in 6 months
Thank you so much to everyone who donated!  We are handing over the money this week (and I will post a receipt when we do). 

On the 24th, remember that all of those kids will be powered all the way to Washington by a little bit of your love and support!
-----------------
On March 24th, Greylock Together (the progressive activist group in the Berkshires) is helping send a bus full of teens and parents to the March for Our Lives , a massive protest in Washington D.C. to try to stop the mass shootings that have plagued our schools for a generation.  Local students are organizing it, but we're providing logistics to assist them -- and we want every student to be able to participate, even if they don't have the money.  The bus tickets will be something like seventy dollars and the Metro tickets will be six dollars.

Please sponsor part of a bus ticket if you can, or a Metro ticket if you can't.  This is a generational challenge, and we need to help them rise up to meet it.  All money will be spent on the kids' transportation -- I will withdraw it to my account and write a check to Mount Greylock junior Karen M. on March 20th!  Get your donations in now!

Okay, we have signed over the money -- after fees, we raised a total of $3,400, just shy of the whole bus fee. Everyone who wants to be able to go will be welcome on the bus, regardless of ability to pay, thanks to all of you. On behalf of Greylock Together and these amazing kids, who are true student-leaders, thank you.

I am told that the kids themselves will be giving me personal messages to thank you, so look for that soon.

This outpouring of faith and support from the community has been astonishing... in five days we've had 55 donors, all donating whatever they can manage! The kids wrote me asking me to increase the goal, and at this rate... I think we're going to hit it!

Thank you, everyone!

Wow....

Just wow.

The outpouring of support from the community has been unbelievable. We've blown past our first goal of $500, then our second (doubled!) goal of $1000. Thanks to you guys, there's a busload of kids who are going to be able to make their voices heard in Washington D.C., no matter their circumstances.

Thank you, everyone. I just spoke to some of the kids -- they were having a meeting to organize logistics -- and they are over the moon over the support. Great work!
