STX Black Panther Challenge

$2,420 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 58 people in 28 days
Created January 25, 2018
MY NAME IS TWANA AUGUSTIN AND I WAS BORN, RAISED, AND LIVE ON THE ISLAND OF ST. CROIX. I HAVE ACCEPTED THE BLACK PANTHER CHALLENGE (#BLACKPANTHERCHALLENGE), AND I AM CALLING ON MY FELLOW CRUCIANS AT HOME AND ABROAD TO MAKE THIS PROJECT/UNDERTAKING A REALITY. I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP TO SEND ALL THE 6TH – 8TH GRADERS ON THE ISLAND OF ST. CROIX TO SEE THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SOON-TO-BE-RELEASED “BLACK PANTHER” MOVIE FREE OF CHARGE.

ALMOST FIVE MONTHS AGO  OUR CHILDREN SURVIVED  TWO BACK-TO-BACK MAJOR CATEGORY 5 HURRICANES, AND ARE STILL COPING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF THE DESTRUCTION LEFT BEHIND. LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS AND OTHER HARD-HIT AREAS, I, TOO, AM STILL ADJUSTING AND TRYING TO BRING SOME SEMBLANCE OF NORMALCY BACK TO MY LIFE. IF IT IS STILL A CHALLENGE FOR  THE ADULTS, IMAGINE OUR CHILDREN AND HOW THEY ARE FEELING. THEY HAVE SURVIVED 2 TERRIFYING NIGHTS IN A SPAN OF 12 DAYS, LOSING THEIR HOME, BEING WITHOUT ELECTRICITY, RUNNING WATER, HOT MEALS, BEING DISPLACED AT HOME AND IN SCHOOL, LOSING FAMILY AND FRIENDS DUE TO RELOCATION AND  YET THEY STILL MANAGE TO ATTEND SCHOOL ON DOUBLE SESSION AND ACHIEVE GREATNESS. THEY DESERVE TO SEE THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY LIVE IN COME TOGETHER ON THEIR BEHALF, IN LOVE, AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR THEM. THEY DESERVE SOME STRESS RELIEF THROUGH THE HAPPINESS AND EXCITEMENT OF A DAY/NIGHT OUT. TO CHEER, SCREAM WITH EXCITEMENT AND LAUGH. THEY DESERVE FOR THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY LIVE IN TO CONTINUE TO SHOW THEM THAT THEY ARE SAFE AND CARED FOR.

WHY THIS MOVIE?  MARVEL’S ‘BLACK PANTHER’ IS THE FIRST MAJOR SUPER HERO MOVIE TO FEATURE A PREDOMINANTLY BLACK CAST ON THE BIG SCREEN.  OUR BOYS AND GIRLS DESERVE TO EXPERIENCE A MOVIE LED BY A POSITIVE BLACK HERO AND HEROINES!  ONES WHO FACE ADVERSITIES AND EVIL CHALLENGES HEAD ON, AND SEE GOOD PREVAIL OVER EVIL! I KNOW EACH ONE OF YOU READING THIS WILL HELP ME MAKE THIS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE. 

MY GOAL IS TO RAISE $10,000.00.  ANY OVERAGES WILL BE DONATED TO THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS OF ST. CROIX.  THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR CARING AND DONATING.
