I'm writing on behalf of the Youth Advisory Council of The Fieldhouse Project. Our group was created in part to bring new ideas to raise funds and awareness about the Fieldhouse Project. The YAC comprises fifteen high school students from the Greater Seattle Area.
In April, we will be competing in the KIND bar competition. The KIND bar competition is a monthly competition where for-purpose organizations, such as the Fieldhouse Project, submit "causes" for everyone to vote on. The entry with most votes receives $10,000. We are reaching out to you in hopes that you would be willing to support us on this journey in this next month.
Should we win, we intend to use $5000 for construction costs; $2000 to purchase sports equipment (primarily from Alive and Kicking, Ghana), $2500 to support a new tutoring program at The Fieldhouse, and $500 for a grand opening celebration and miscellaneous start up costs.
Our goal is to pick up as much support as we can get. It is our hope that through social media and other outlets to help us spread the word and encourage people to support the Fieldhouse Project.
The competition begins April 10th, and we would really appreciate if you could encourage your friends, family, classmates, and colleagues to please vote for The Fieldhouse on the KIND bar website starting April 10th.
We will send you the link when it becomes available but when the competition starts, you can vote by visiting fieldhouseproject.org/vote which will send you to the official voting page.
Thank you so much for your time and we do hope you consider supporting us in our endeavors.
