2016 Roda-thon for PROJETO KIRIMURÊ_Metralha

Enriching the lives of children through capoeira Learn More

Hi Friends and Family, 

On Saturday July 23rd, I am partnering with Capoeira Arts Foundation and raising money for 2016 Roda-thon for Projeto Kirimurê. I sincerely appreciate your support for this fundraiser and my goal. You can donate now and by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right.

You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds. I appreciate it so very much.

Why are we raising money?

The main goal of the Roda-thon is to help contribute to the sustainability of an at-risk youth program called Projeto Kirimurê (PK), in Itapuã, Bahia, Brazil. Once a small fishing village, this community has become overrun with urban crowding, pollution, poverty and the high prevalence of violence and drug-related crime.Through PK’s cultural center, local children between 4 and 16 years of age find a safe and nurturing environment through which they discover who they are, why they are special, where they come from, and how to find positive solutions to seemingly impossible problems. As the children of the neighborhood learn the game of capoeira, its music, history and philosophy, they develop physical and emotional strength, discover their roots and build self-esteem and character. Along with capoeira and related music classes, PK also offers literacy classes, homework help, psychological counseling, activities in health and environmental education, as well as field trips and a daily nutritious snack. PK works hard to engage the families of the children in all of the above work.

Founded by Mestre Acordeon, The Capoeira Arts Foundation is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization that has been dedicated to supporting Projeto Kirimurê since 2005, among other capoeira and capoeira related projects. His goal in supporting PK is to give back to the generations of children whose ancestors gave him and countless others the beautiful art of capoeira.

What is the Roda-thon?

The Roda-thon is a pledge based fundraiser in which participants play as many capoeira games as possible. As in many fundraisers of this nature, participants will look to raise funds through our extended networks of family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc. Participants will search for sponsorships on a per game basis, or by asking for a flat contribution. Suggested minimums are $1 per game or a flat contribution of $20, but any and all contributions will go a long way to helping us achieve our goal. All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of US tax laws.

This year because of logistics I will be unable to be physically present at the Roda-thon, so in lieu of games, I'm committing to kicks. My very own kick-a-thon!! I will match every dollar donated with one capoeira kick. $10 = 10 kicks.

We're currently at 74% of our general goal (~$22,300/30,000) with 14 days to go. The donation page will be open until August 13th. If you know of anyone, who like yourself, would be willing to donate to this project, please do not hesitate in letting them know.
