Greetings, Friends and Supporters of CLiCK!
We are happy to send you our first e-newsletter! CLiCK continues to grow and we wish to sincerely thank all of you who have helped and continue to help to make this growth happen. In fact, so much is happening that we barely have time to put it into a newsletter before something else happens! Our goal is to send you regular updates so you can know exactly how your support has helped (if you were at our last fundraiser you’ll be happy to see that our accessible and family-friendly bathroom is finished, thanks to your generous support -- see pictures below) and to alert you of upcoming events. Coming up, on Saturday July 21st at 4pm my wife Tina and I will be hosting another Fundraiser in our garden in order to fix the CLiCK welcome sign. Tickets will be $25 at the door and will get you one specialty cocktail from our Tiki Bar and tasty delicacies from our kitchen members! There will be live music by Sarah Jo Burke and lots of great people -- that includes you! :-) Speaking of fundraising, our amazing manager Rachael LaPorte and I recently attended a great event for local nonprofits organized by The Liberty Bank Foundation. The keynote speaker, Vu Le, was phenomenal and everything he said resonated with us -- for example, his astute observation that even though nonprofits are working diligently to put out the fires of injustice, funders generally want to pay for programs but not for overhead. In other words, this is like saying you’ll pay for the water but not the hoses! CLiCK needs a lot of hoses and so we count on friends and supporters like you to help us continue to put out those fires! If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity (from applying to the Board to gardening) please do email us at email@example.com. Thank you again for supporting our mission and all of us who benefit from and believe in CLiCK.
—Phoebe, CLiCK Board President
