FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Future Kind Official Partner of Reno Earth Day 2013
Reno, Nevada, March 30, 2013- Future Kind has officially partnered with this year’s Reno Earth Day Celebration, which will be held on Sunday, April 21st, 2013 from 10am to 6pm at Idlewild Park.
Future Kind is 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists to reduce the opportunity gap for communities with limited resources around the world; and, to educate the youth about music, sustainability and the arts. Team members of Future Kind will be presenting at the Reno Earth Day Celebration to share what they are doing in the community and around the world.
Future Kind will be having a raffle on Earth day to raise funds to purchase 100 Life Straws® for rural, indigenous communities in Paraguay, South America. Life Straws® provide a personal filtration system that can be used to drink water that would normally be unsanitary. Future Kind will be raffling of two Life Straws® at Earth Day. Don’t forget to stop by Future Kind’s table on Earth Day to learn more about their projects and how you can be part of the change!
About Future Kind
Future Kind was created by a diverse community of people (artists, educators, and scientists) with a strong belief that through education and improved infrastructure, we can help close the opportunity gap and build communities that are in harmony with themselves and the environment.
One of Future Kind’s projects in the Reno/Sparks area is “Future Kind Summer” which is a five-day program designed to encourage high school students to learn about and practice disciplines that encourage creativity, promote good health and environmental consciousness. Participation is free for chosen applicants, and activities include acroyoga, aerial silks, DJ/music, art, percussion, permaculture, and more. Applications will be available at Earth Day for the 2013 summer program.
Future Kind commitment to education and reducing the opportunity gap amongst communities is displayed in their Digital Library Project. The project consists of providing textbooks and educational apps through tablets (Kindle Fire and Ipads) to impoverished schools lacking the appropriate educational material to help students further their education. Future Kind works with the school’s officials to provide ebooks, and apps covering a range of topics from accounting, mathematics and physics; to arts, literature and health. Current projects are being developed in Paraguay and Chile.
As mentioned above, Future Kind is working with local government officials and indigenous community leaders in Northern Paraguay to provide these communities with Life Straw® water filters. These communities have no access to safe drinking water, making them highly susceptible to disease. Our efforts will expand to other sites in South America and Africa.
For volunteering opportunities, please email Future Kind at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are always looking for enthusiastic people from all walks of life to add their knowledge and experiences to their projects.
