August 2012 Fundraiser | $10 Donation to FIRST
Starting today (August 1, 2012), through August 30, 2012, Squarespace Plugins will donate $10 to FIRST (an educational technology and science organization) for each Squarespace 6 subscription purchased from a link on our website! Using the Squarespace 6 Template tool is a great way to not only help you find the perfect template but will also support the FIRST organization when following any of the tool’s links to buy a subscription.
(NB- The subscription plans are the same price here as they are on the Official Squarespace website. You will not pay any more or any less.) Thanks for supporting FIRST and Squarespace Plugins!
WOW- This month’s fundraiser has really taken off- $210 in just the first 6 days! Because the Squarespace Affiliate program works on a tiered system, we will double our donation to $20 per Squarespace 6 sign-up if we raise $500 (= 50 sign-ups) or more this month!
We closed out the month strong and donated a total of $2240 to the Florida chapter of FIRST Lego League! It’s ran entirely by volunteers so 100% of the donation will go straight to the kids! You can check them out at flrobotics.org
Our plan is to continue donating to educational, technology/science, and creative arts focused organizations each month.
FIRST – Vision and Mission
“To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”
Dean Kamen, Founder
Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
One of the many great things about FIRST is that it’s not limited to a specific educational system- eg Public, Private, or Homeschool kids. Anyone can get involved. My daughter had so much fun participating and realized science CAN be FUN!
*Not so fine print: For each sale of a Squarespace 6 subscription purchased from the Squarespace Plugins website between August 1, 2012 through August 30, 2012, Squarespace Plugins will donate $10 to FIRST. Donation will be made on Sept 16, 2012 after the confirmation of legitimate sales via the Squarespace locking period. A Minimum donation of $100 will be made for sales totaling 1-10 subscriptions.
