Thank you so much for participating in LAVA's 2012 Handstand-a-Thon.
The LAVA Community will stand on our hands for every dollar raised for LAVA's community programs. Our goal is $20,000. With the money you raise, you will help LAVA offer need-based scholarships, discounts, and work-study options for class tuitions for students of all ages, as well as our FREE weekly Community Class for kids and our contining partnership with P.S. 9. Your contribution also supports our free, open performance events: LAVA works-in-progress showings, Night of Renegades (all ages) and Magma Mix (kids). Combined, these community programs offer access to LAVA for nearly 1,200 people in Brooklyn in a given year.
Here are ways you can help us reach our goal:
- Make a donation
- Write a personal email to your friends and family encouraging them to make a donation to you online through your personal fundraising page tied to this event at www.firstgiving.com/yourname
just click the Start Fundraising button above to register. When you register you will receive LAVA's exclusive "I <3 Handstanding" wristband you see to the right.
- Bring your friends to the Handstand-a-Thon on May 20th, 2pm at the LAVA Studio
- Come stand on your hands and help us fulfill our promise to stand on our hands for each dollar raised... we hope we have to be on our hands for at least 20,000 seconds. Whether your handstand is 10 seconds, 45 seconds, or even 2 minutes, all of it helps us meet our promise.
- Become a “Handstand Spotter” by sponsoring a specific challenge, for example:
a. $500 if we get 25 people do 30 second handstands at the same time
b. Match all money raised by anyone under the age of 12
c. Or come up with your own challenge and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
