Korrine Kreilkamp, our Community Roots founder, organizer, and local-food all-around all-star has been invited to the prestigious Patagonia Tools for Grassroots Activists Conference this fall at Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The invitation-only conference is an extraordinary training opportunity for young grassroots organizers from across the country, and we’re incredibly proud that Korrine got an invitation. Patagonia – the great outdoors retailer, wonderful corporate citizen, and a very generous supporter of KEA in past years – picks up the tab for training and room and board, but we need to get Korrine to Tahoe.
This, of course, is the kind of opportunity that we didn’t budget for but that is also way too good to pass up. So we need your help. We’d like to raise about $500 to pay for airfare, travel expenses, and have a little left over so that we can implement whatever Korrine learns on her trip. An anonymous donor has offered to donate the final $100 if we raise the other $400 on-line.
So, help us send Korrine to camp! Click on the button to donate $10, $25, $50, $100 or more (pay pal or credit cards accepted through pay pal) toward this great investment.
