Thank You! 60 hours left in our IndieGoGo campaign…

Last Wednesday, we hosted over 50 people at our Summer Party at Leftfield NYC. The fundraiser party featured an impromptu drum circle and an intro capoeira class (photos below). We raised over $1000 dollars towards our $18,000 fundraising goal to renovate our new space. Special thanks to all of you who attended, helped out, and contributed to the successful event.

While the festivities have ended, the campaign continues. We have 60 hours left to go on our IndieGogo fundraising campaign. If you have pledged already, thank you so much. If you have a minute, please share our campaign with your friends and family. If you haven’t yet pledged, we appreciate any contribution you can make. Every little bit counts to help us renovate our new space and expand our capoeira leadership programs for young people in NYC (learn more).

If you prefer paper, you can print out this donation letter and form and mail it back with your contribution.

Thank you so much for your continued support of Afro Brazil Arts in our mission to light the fire of capoeira for thousands of NYC youth every year.

Please support me for the AIDS Walk

Hi everyone,

I just signed up to participate in the AIDS Walk this Sunday in Central Park with my colleagues at Human Rights Watch. If you able to help, please consider making an online donation to fund a worthy cause. Thanks you so for your support.

  • AIDS Walk New York is the world’s largest AIDS fundraising event.
  • AIDS Walk New York stands out as a model of community action and cost-efficient fundraising. The priority has always been to have the money raised go directly to vital services to help people living with HIV or AIDS.
  • AIDS Walk New York benefits GMHC, the nation’s oldest and most comprehensive AIDS Service organization. The organization’s staff of 189 and 7,000 dedicated volunteers provide services to more than 15,000 men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS and their families.
  • A portion of the net proceeds from the AIDS Walk also goes to dozens of other AIDS organizations within the tri-state area.
