Last year, we did our best to help donate to the Mars Generation and to help them reach their goal of $20,000! We were able to help them, and we raised almost $150 for them.
This year, we want to raise 8x that.
The Mars Generation is a non-profit that helps kids get excited about STEM. Started by Abigail Harrison, or as many know her, Astronaut Abby, in 2015, The Mars Generation has been helping children get into Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math ever since.
This year, it's their 3rd Annual #TrainLikeaMartian challenge. The challenge 'is a week of fun activities that brings awareness to the importance of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) education, space exploration, and physical fitness to students and adults around the world' according to their website.
Last year, FemSTEM got involved, and we want to get involved again.
We did some of the challenges ourselves, as well as started a fundraising page to help raise them up to their goal!
Here is our current fundraising page to help them out this year!
If you donate, all of the money goes directly to the Mars Generation -- we don't see any of it. This is not sponsored by them in any way, shape or form, it's just a fun way to help our fellow STEM-lovers help others!
And -- if you donate $25 or more, you get entered into their daily prize drawings as well as their grand prize drawings. You can learn more information about their prizes here. On top of that, you'll get a handwritten thank you card from us no matter how much you donate (as long as you donate through our fundraiser here).
What are you waiting for!!
