Back in August, we were fortunate enough to participate in boloco and Magic Hat’s Vermont Pairing is Caring event. boloco donated the proceeds from the event to our 50 State Campaign, bringing Vermont closer to receiving an online mentoring program in one of their schools.
This December, boloco again decided to help us reach our campaign goals – this time in three different states.
boloco held their 2nd annual 12 Days of Giving at locations in Burlington, Vermont; Concord, New Hampshire; Hanover, New Hampshire (Dartmouth College); and Medford, Massachusetts (Tufts University). Each day, in the spirit of giving during the holiday season, they donated 50 cents from the sale of every burrito, bowl and salad to a different nonprofit. You can see more here.
icouldbe.org was featured one day at each of the four participating locations, raising money towards implementing our mentoring program into Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts schools. Not only did we raise important funds – a total of $625.50, plus additional cash donations! – we were able to speak to local patrons about our campaign, educate them on the benefits of online mentoring, and encourage them to become a mentor to a student in need.
So thanks again boloco, for your continual efforts to bring online mentoring to students in New England!
