This summer, ThreadED will present uAspire, a Boston nonprofit, with our first donation funded by sales and direct contributions. The gift will support uAspire's Last Dollar Scholarship, which helps students fill that final, challenging gap between their financial aid package and their cost of attending college in the coming year. uAspire is a Boston-based national nonprofit that has been providing one-on-one college affordability counseling to disadvantaged students for more than thirty years. Look for updates about our initial gift in the next newsletter and on ThreadED's website and Facebook page.
Taking Care of Business...
ThreadED will have three interns this summer focusing on communicating with more diverse audiences, researching sales channels and increasing donations. Caryn, a rising University of Michigan sophomore (pictured below) is helping us use social media to more effectively share our mission and opportunities to help the organization. Only two days into her internship, she developed a great idea to run a prom dress collection drive.
Co-Directors Laurel and Gail, with help from our interns, write the occasional ThreadED newsletter. We welcome any and all feedback, ideas and general support at firstname.lastname@example.org
