On April 17th, 2014, the Lower 9th Ward Village launched a kickstarter, a crowdfunding online fundraiser to reconnect with the 50,000 volunteers and supporters who have been touched by the Lower 9th Ward Village. The Village is currently facing foreclosure and we are reaching out to you all for your support.
Without your support, the Lower 9th Ward Village would have never become a reality. That building would have remained abandoned and unable to do any of the work that the center has done for this community. The Lower 9th Ward Village is a vital resource for community members especially for the youth, elderly, and the working class.
So far we have raised over $1500 but have a long ways to go to our larger goal of $180,000.
Here are 5 ways you can help:
1.) Donate to the kickstarter.
2.) Tell 5 of your friends about the #SaveL9Village campaign
3.) Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr using #SaveL9Village
4.) Be a part of our #VillageSelfie photo campaign and share with us why you want to save the Village
5.) Spread the word about our upcoming road trip and benefit concert at the Howlin Wolf on May 23rd, 2014.
