<3! Funded <3!
Hello Party People!
Thanks to everyone who has contributed, we are over our funding goal with over a week to go! THANK YOU. <3. THANK YOU.
A quick update on where we've been - yesterday we entertained and FULLY occupied 292 7th and 8th graders during their last week of school armed only with Block Party. WHAT?! We were welcomed into the classrooms of Bernardo Yorba middle school by a wonderful Mrs. Stack and Mr. Fain, both math teachers. After a quick demonstration of How to Party, we gave each group of six students a set of Block Party. Within minutes the students were calling "Party!" and yelling at each other. Some groups preferred to play cooperatively and help each other fix party fouls, other groups would count down from 10 seconds, putting the pressure on their classmates and docking points when they failed. We unfortunately were not allowed to take pictures. Here are some verbal snapshots, I hope they suffice!
A student kneeling on a table, towering over blocks. Students slapping each other's hands. A group of four girls shouting "Party!!!" in unison every time their group found a party. "Party! Party! Party! Party!"
We're headed to a Crowdfunding Movement party in San Francisco on Thursday Night where I (Benjamin) will be talking about being Kind to Strangers!
Thanks again for the <3 and support!
