A year ago, Ramsay Stabler set out to start a Strings Music Program at St. Elizabeth’s School. His first Challenge went spectacularly, exceeding its goal in about 24 hours. As a results, the wonderful, diverse and exceptional students of St. Elizabeth’s School got 20 violins, and an amazing violin instructor. The fundraiser even helped SES purchase a bevy of Orff Instruments for its other music classes!
Courageous Women, Fearless Living is a 5-day retreat that guides, teaches and empowers women who have been touched by cancer. The program provides attendees with life-long lessons and strategies to skillfully relate with fear, stress and pain, and to discover courage, relaxation and joy. Women from all over the world travel to attend the retreat here in the Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, but cancer can be incredibly expensive, even with insurance.

AMAZING NEWS! Celebration Community Church, who have already matched for $2000, are tossing an additional $1000 in the pot. They will use that money to match any donations that come in from now (when you got Candice and UrbiCulture to their original goal) until the challenge ends on May 6. Spread the word. All extra funds will make the garden better, enabling UCF to get more of the items listed in the Budget below.

Update: Well, what can we say? We were able to purchase the tent and stove and are excited to test them out soon! With this project, the boys in Boy Scout Troop 444 collected cans to raise enough money to replace our aging cook tent and stove. None of this would have been possible without the help of Brian Vogt and the Denver Botanic Gardens, who not only recognized our project but helped us financially.

Update: WE DID IT! With your help, we were able to plant, maintain and harvest vegetable gardens in existing flower plots all over Denver. Of course, we weren't alone. Each plot was adopted by neighbors, who weeded, watered, and chose which food bank they would go to. The sense of ownership really made each garden special, thank you to everyone who helped!
