As her project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, Victoria Tangata has created Date to Educate, a date auction being held February 9th in Seattle, to benefit the education of Kenyan children.
The event will take place from 7-11pm downtown at the Pink Ultra Lounge on 6th and Pine. Dates with ten men and ten women will be auctioned, with the package including a complete date experience such as a romantic dinner, a movie night, dancing or even rock climbing.
The event is intended to raise $10,000 for children’s scholarships and provoke awareness about what it will take for Kenyan children to get real opportunities.
Tickets cost $15 in advance, or $20 at the door. For more information visit the Date to Educate event page.
A ‘March for Justice’ in Washington D.C. has been created by Dr. Paul Zeitz out of his participation in the Landmark Education Self-Expression and Leadership Program. The march, scheduled for Martin Luther King Day, January 17, is a march for economic and social justice taking place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Zeitz, who professionally is the executive director of the Global AIDS Alliance nonprofit, says that “What once was an America ‘by the people and for the people’, today is a dysfunctional and ailing America ‘by corporations and for corporations.’ Our elected leaders have failed us, as they are stuck in an intractable quagmire of greed-driven, lowest-common-denominator deal-making.”
