San Francisco Street Dance Community Funds New Venue for Artists

CellSpace2
When b-boy dancer and artist Vandor ‘Whacko’ Hill realized that popular dance venue and artistic studio Cellspace was closing its doors, he took action.

Using crowdfunding site Fundly, Vandor rallied the San Francisco artistic community around his fundraiser and was able to raise over $6,400 for a new local venue for emerging artists and dancers.

His advice for running a successful campaign:

Keep your timeline short and simple–don’t drag it out. Post [on social media] and much as you can. Thank people as much as you can. Stick to your guns and ride it out. You’re going to have doubt, but if you stick to your guns you will be successful.

 

Check out b-boy dancers as they battle it out at CellSpace’s final event.

Living with ALS: Kristy’s Story

As told by Kerry, Kristy’s sister 


Who is Kristy?

Kristy is a runner who ran a half marathon last November.  She’s an outdoorsy girl, who loves to snow mobile in the winter and lay by the pool in the summer sun.  She’s got a laugh that is contagious and a spirit that makes you believe.

Kristy has ALS.

Kristy can no longer talk, walk, or feed herself.  She can no longer bathe herself, or brush her own hair.  Because Kristy can no longer swallow safely, and has a feeding tube.  Kristy lives inside of her own head, unable to verbally express the feelings she has inside.  Kristy may not have a voice, but she can still be heard.

kristy wedding with momFor those of us inside of Kristy’s world, we have watched this horrific disease slowly take away the once energetic, vibrant, active woman in Kristy. We hold court with Kristy and fight this war along side her.  We laugh with her.  We cry with her.  We support her in every way she needs.  We will never give up.

While ALS will eventually take over Kristy’s body, it will never take over her mind.  With continued support from those of us that love her, Kristy will continue to make an imprint on the lives of those she encounters.  ALS may win the battle, but Kristy will certainly win the war.

Who is Kristy? She is my sister —the fighter.

11-year-old Raises Money for Youth Basketball

By Shay, Age 11

Basketball is fun. It’s something I look forward to every single day and has given me a chance to make some awesome friends.

I’m lucky enough to play on a great club basketball team where I get all of the gear I need to play. I started Alley-Oop Kids to help other kids get the same opportunity and gear that I have. I need your help with my very first project!

I am partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula to provide kid-thought-out athletic gear packs to approximately 60 kids between the ages of 8 and 15 for their Fall 2014 after school basketball program. I think all kids should get a shot at having a great basketball experience.

For more information check out: www.alleyoopkids.org

Thanks for your help and keep ballin’!
