Happy Valentine’s Day!
Catherine created this project in Scratch for the PTA Reflections contest. Catherine has won in her category at her school, and at the city-wide level, and is now on her way to the State competition!
After programming her story in Scratch, Catherine used a screen capture program to put her animation into video format.
Marisa and her family participated in our Family Creative Learning Workshops this past October. Here’s why she’s giving on Giving Tuesday:
So there’s Black Friday & Cyber Monday but today is something I feel represents what this time of year really means: Giving. Whether it’s your time, your love, or your support to a great cause.
In this case I feel we can accomplish all 3 by donating to a cause that helps our children; Clubhouse 253. This place has been a great asset to our community. Offering free tutoring during the week & Girls Day on Saturdays where they learn all about computers & technology that will help them succeed in the future. There’s also ongoing workshops that gets the whole family involved. Not to mention meals during these events!
All these services are free. The people who run this volunteer so much of their time & energy to help the next generation. A lot of whom went to the clubhouse as kids themselves. It would be great if we could help them continue this amazing program that has done so much for so many.
You can give to them by clicking the donate button on their website.”http://bit.ly/1ehNVdx
“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”
You can give your gift to the Computer Clubhouse of Tacoma by clicking the paypal link on the Clubhouse Website. After you make your donation, post on your social network sites and let your family and friends know WHY you chose to give, and don’t forget to tag your post with #GivingTuesday!
