Fundraising Fridays: Craftland Supports Girls Rock! Rhode Island November 29, 2018 20:11
At Craftland, we offer original, handmade gifts all year long, and we're excited to support organizations that develop the original gifts of our community's young people.
Join Craftland to support the work of Girls Rock! RI through Fundraising Fridays! During the holiday season, Craftland will donate a portion of our sales every Friday 5-8pm to Girls Rock! Rhode Island.
Oh yeah!! ( Insert guitar solo here )
Girls Rock! Rhode Island is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that offers creative experiences to girls, women, trans, and gender non-conforming individuals. For a decade GRRI has organized local musicians to volunteer their time to help young people learn to make music and encourage critical thinking, collaborative relationships, and healthy identities.
GRRI's flagship program is Girls Rock Camp -- over 5 transformative days campers learn an instrument, join a band, write an original song, and perform it in front of a live audience of hundreds. Whoa! Campers learn how to rock, and also attend workshops on issues like power and privilege, media literacy, and healthy relationships. Ladies Rock Camp is a similar 3-day experience for adults who want to rock. If you have not explored your inner Joan Jett, we strongly encourage you to sign up for a camp!
GRRI also offers year-round group music lessons, discussion groups, and after-school programming. Young people can borrow equipment through the Gear Loan program and get support from volunteer musicians during free Youth Drop-In sessions.
On Fundraising Fridays, Craftland will donate 25% of all proceeds from evening sales to each Girls Rock! RI and Youth Pride, Inc. Shop at Craftland from 5PM to 8PM on November 30 and December 7, 14 and 21. We'll take care of the rest!
We know that creativity is a powerful avenue of self-discovery -- and everyone deserves a chance to rock! Spread the word, and support GRRI by shopping at Craftland on a Friday evening this holiday season. Together we can help Girls Rock! RI prepare a new generation of leaders who can get loud!
Thank you, Girls Rock! Rhode Island, for everything you do! YOU ROCK!
