We got to meet most of the people from this video at the zoom on Tuesday.
The video is only one minute long, so I hope you’ll watch it if you haven’t already.
We met Danny and Rob and E.B. and Percy and Booker T on Tuesday.
Smart. Inspiring. Passionate. Hopeful. Impressive!
Each one told us their story and they were seriously amazing. When I get time I’ll put up the video of the zoom, but this week is sapping my energy and I am not going to get to it today.
When that goes up you’ll get to meet Carrie, too, one of the people who started this organization 2 years ago. Carrie is lovely person filled with passion; I can’t wait for you to meet her, too.
The $25,000 we hope to raise for VAAC will fund community engagement done by most of the people we met.
We are into our second $1,000 Balloon Juice angel match, with $435 of that already donated before Balloon Juice was so rudely interrupted by the ransomware attack. Between that and the external match of 21,500 (and they are still working on matching the full $25k) you can multiply your donation by a factor of 4.
$25 funds the full cost of an hour of face-to-face community engagement. With our angel match and the external match, 25 bucks funds 4 hours.
For this angel match, we are matching up to $50 for donations in the comments.
And when this Angel match is complete, we have another one in the wings!
