May 26, 2015 — We are extremely pleased and very excited to announce that we are partnering with Random Acts to raise funds for their Dreams 2 Acts Nicaragua campaign!
If you’re unfamiliar with the campaign, you can read all about it here: http://nicaragua.randomacts.org/. Basically, Random Acts is raising funds to create a free high school for students in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, where access to public education isn’t a given- particularly for women.
We thought that this was an amazing opportunity, given the nature of Wayward Daughters. What better way to show support for empowerment of women and girls than by raising money to build a school for young people for whom education and opportunities might otherwise be out of reach?
Because of this, we’ve decided to make Random Acts the recipients of our t-shirt campaign donations!
They are only about $25,000 away from their goal! That means that if every person who has already signed the petition bought a t-shirt, tank top, or hoodie, we could raise the remaining funds! It’s that easy!
We will be starting the t-shirt campaign soon on Represent, which means that 100% of the profit will go directly to Random Acts. We’ve had a lot of interest in the t-shirts, so we’re hoping that you will feel good about purchasing one knowing that your donation is going to an excellent cause.
If you don’t have $19.95 for a t-shirt, don’t worry. Our goal here isn’t to sell shirts. Any donation at all will go a long way for Dreams 2 Acts. Only have a dollar to spare? Awesome! That’s one more dollar than they’d already raised. Donate however much you want to the campaign here: https://www.crowdrise.com/D2A-Nicaragua2015.
If you can’t spare any money, we totally understand. Just do something kind for someone today in the name of Random Acts. A little goes a long way!
We will keep everyone posted about the start of the t-shirt campaign, which should begin this next week. In the mean time, spread the word! We could very easily raise enough money to reach their goal, and how cool would that be?
Carry on, wayward children!
Keep fighting for people power!
