Aquatic residents speak out about their reasons for giving!

We received some beautiful, heartfelt statements from our residents about why they chose to donate to this groundbreaking campaign. We wanted to share a few of those as our campaign comes to a close over the next week. here's one from Chelsea Samuel:

"I was happy to have an opportunity to support my community this way. This is such a unique campaign and I wanted to help it succeed and it’s such a worthy cause. I’m lucky to have a safe place to live and I’m glad we could all come together to make sure that’s true for everyone in Berkeley."

It means so much to us that members of our community are feeling empowered to help those in need around them. If you know anyone who feels this way, we encourage you to share YouCaring.com/Aquatic with them so they can contribute - there are still lots of matching funds doubling each donation we receive!

Thanks everyone :)

$5000 more in matching funds secured!!

As we crossed the $5000 mark for our groundbreaking campaign last week, we wanted to find a way to continue matching funds beyond this initial amount so we can really maximize the good we can do with this funding drive. We're happy to announce that we've secured another $5000 in matching funds, so any amount donated up to our full $10,000 goal will be matched dollar for dollar. This means if we reach our fundraising goal, we'll actually have raised $20,000 to aid with the homeless of Berkeley. Amazing!

Please continue to share YouCaring.com/Aquatic with your friends, family, and neighbors so we can get as much exposure as we can for this campaign. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed - we appreciate your commitment to helping house the homeless in Berkeley!

Our campaign kickoff party is today - yay!

We're so excited to launch this effort, and with contributions already rolling in from residents and donors, we're more confident than ever that we will be able to reach our funding goal. We are looking forward to having our residents connect with the BFHP staff and share our excitement about this fundraising campaign this afternoon at The Aquatic.

We encourage everyone share the campaign link (YouCaring.com/Aquatic) with their own networks so we can get as much exposure as we can for this great cause.

Thanks to everyone who has already contributed, and for those who will be joining our cause in the coming days/weeks :)
