Help All Our Kin win $100,000!
All Our Kin has been nominated for a $100,000 award as part of an exciting philanthropic web challenge hosted by Stratton Faxon. The award will go to the nonprofit who receives the most votes, and we need your help to ensure All Our Kin wins!
It only takes 30 seconds. Simply go to the Stratton Faxon website, http://www.strattonfaxon.com/charity-contest/site-launch-contest, and vote for All Our Kin. Once you've voted, please forward this to your friends and ask them to vote for AOK too.
If All Our Kin wins, we will be able to build on our exciting new garden project and install organic gardens in the backyards of family child care providers, who care for our youngest and most vulnerable children. The gardens furnish a fun, hands-on way to get children outside and to teach children about where food comes from. They also provide a sustainable source of nutritious and delicious produce that child care providers can share with children and families who may be unable to afford fresh produce otherwise. In addition, the money will help expand our innovative, high-touch coaching and consultation program. Our educational consultants will work one-on-one with family child care providers to teach them how to build a curriculum around the gardens, engage families in the project, and create extended learning opportunities that capture children's natural curiosity and wonder about the natural world and support social and emotional development, literacy, math, and scientific inquiry.
