Orlando’s Urban Think Foundation seeks to fundraise $30,000 in 30 days during December, 2013

Mission 30k30d for Orlando!

Since 2008, the Urban Think Foundation has brought Orlando creative, educational, and culture-building programs like Page 15 and Burrow Press, as well as the recently closed Urban ReThink.  This holiday season, the Foundation is presenting the community with an assortment of holiday gifts and giving options, with a goal of raising $30,000 in 30 days during December to go back into their mission of building Orlando’s creative profile: Mission 30k30d for Orlando.

 “We’re raising $30,000 in 30 days; $1,000 a day for the entire month of December.  We’re looking to Orlando citizens for help!” Says Foundation Executive Director, Shaina Anderson. “Our programs are for Orlando, often by Orlando citizens, and always meant to provide opportunities for forward-thinking about our city. It’s our job to adapt to our changing city, and this campaign is the fuel we need to move forward.”
