Extracurricular programs such as sports teams and music lessons can bolster children's school performance, increase test scores, and lower dropout rates, as well as reducing their risk of engaging in substance abuse and criminal behavior. However, the cost of participating in such activities is prohibitively expensive for many families. Building Blocks 4 Kids is an organization that was formed to provide enriching opportunities to kids living in at-risk environments in Clackamas and Multnomah counties.
Through its From Wish to Reality program, Building Blocks 4 Kids sponsors young individuals to participate in extracurricular activities that boost self-esteem and provide positive creative outlets. Scholarships can be applied toward a number of engaging pastimes including art classes, tutoring, camps, sports participation, and foreign-language lessons. By supporting team-building exercises and active participation, the organization seeks to help provide kids with access to solid foundations for the future. Scholarships range from $25 to $300, depending on the activity.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Building Blocks 4 Kids sponsor enrollment in an extracurricular activity for one child. If G-Team members raise $300, the organization’s From Wish to Reality program can fund one season of football for one child. Each additional $25 raised will sponsor enrollment in an art class, a Spanish class, or music lessons for another child.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
