Crowdfunding (Dec ’15): Sarah’s Mitzvah Project 2016, Prometheus, The Game Of Dares And More!

Websites like Kickstarter, Gofundme, and Indiegogo make it easy for people to support one another by bringing a variety of causes all in one place. Users can donate any amount to as many different causes as they choose, and the best part – typically there are some really good contribution incentives, too. After surfing the web I didn’t see any resource that shows Long Island based projects, so I decided to make one. I’m thinking about doing this once a month, what do you think? (answer in the comments below)

Alexa_Studies_In_Greece_180[FEATURED]
Alexa Studying In Greece (Roslyn Heights)
This one stood out to me, because Alexa (known as Lexi to her friends) is a student preparing to study abroad in Greece. I remember wanting to study abroad and I didn’t have the money to do so. Sadly, the finances stopped me, but it’s not stopping her. I guess you can accuse me of living vicariously through her. This trip means more to Lexi than just a cool thing to do and brag about to her friends. She has put out the fact that there is a financial struggle for her to accomplish her dream of travelling, but it isn’t stopping her; and she isn’t going to sacrifice her studies to do so either. She is scheduled to leave mid-January and needs our help to offset the expenses like tuition, flights, housing, books, meals, transportation, and anything else associated with making her dream come true. Donate now. Continue reading “Crowdfunding (Dec ’15): Sarah’s Mitzvah Project 2016, Prometheus, The Game Of Dares And More!”

Furman Film Series: A Royal Night Out THIS WEDNESDAY! (Great Neck – 12/2)

royal-night-out-1_500It’s Victory in Europe Day in 1945, and while the King and Queen of England (Rupert Everett and Emily Watson) prefer to observe the end of the Second World War as solemnly as possible, Princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are quite eager to participate in the revelry in the heart of London.
