The BREAKAWAY Team at the Emergent Media Center is utilizing a Thunderclap (a social sharing message tool … kind of like an online flash mob) in order to kick off a new fundraising campaign to send our team back to Sonsonate, El Salvador, to train facilitators and lead a BREAKAWAY children’s camp – with a mission to end violence against women and girls.
Last year, Breakaway ran a successful camp in El Salvador (read a research study on BREAKAWAY camps from the University of Buffalo Breakaway_MeaningfulPlay2014). Our goal in returning to El Salvador is to help Salvadorans create a self-sustaining model for BREAKAWAY camps that enact long-lasting change!
How can you help us return to El Salvador?
- Support our Thunderclap Breakaway via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or all three. All it takes is a SINGLE CLICK and Thunderclap will post for you automatically at the kickoff time of Oct. 1 at 3pm!
- Share our Thunderclap page with your friends and/or followers asking them to #BREAKAWAY as well.
- Support our efforts to return to El Salvador by donating to our cause
- On October 1st, watch as our Thunderclap, with your help, is blasted throughout social media!
We appreciate your support in taking a stand to end violence against women!
