Spare Change for Social Change
We launched the Rex Community Caravan to be our virtual vehicle for philanthropy, where each of us can help generate positive social change with contributions that we might otherwise consider spare change over the course of a year, such as $5.00 is a penny a day, $36.00 is 10 cents a day, or $50 is 14 cents a day.
To demonstrate the power of spare change to generate social change, Rex is initiating a Call for Change to raise $50,000 over the next five months. All dollars raised via our Rex Community Caravan between October 3, 2006 and March 2, 2007 will be distributed as grants. Contributors can tell us if they want donations to go towards one of Rex’s main areas of funding – healthy environment, individuality in the arts, social & economic justice, preservation of indigenous cultures, strong community and the education of children and adults.
To see what you can help accomplish, go to the Rex Community Caravan and make a donation on-line or download the Caravan form to fax or mail. To specify a grant area, enter one of the six bolded titles noted above. Forward this web address to others you want to bring on board the Rex Community Caravan to help generate social change with their spare change.
Each month, we’ll announce the Caravan totals and include stories about the kinds of programs your contributions support, like the one about NextCourse.
Get on board the Rex Community Caravan and watch your spare change generate social change. Check out Fostering the Power of Community, Service and the Arts for more about what we mean by social change and the work of the Rex Foundation towards this.
Thanks for all your support.
