Thank you all for your generous support we raised over $1300 on our indiegogo campaign. Over the course of 20 days! This allowed us to buy art supplies, musical instruments and air beds for our instructors. We packed 4 barrels worth of supplies and shipped them to Jamaica.
However our Goal was $4000 and still is.
We still need funds to buy camp t-shirts, build tables and benches, and purchase food for all of the campers. If you were unable to donate during the indiegogo campaign we are still accepting donations via paypal:

If you haven't heard RIP the MC perform than you need to come out this THURSDAY
and experience him and his crew live and in person!!!
RIP MC is the official resident poet for the Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp and this Thursday (June 4) we will be passing around a bucket at the Poetry Party to help raise funds to bring his style of poetry to our likkle yute dem.
Dub poetry as it is known down a yard is a major part of Jamaican culture --- starting back in the 80's. Lyricist would spit rhythemic poetry over heavy dub beats and the art form was born. Last year we had a talent show during the closing ceremonies for the camp and
I was amazed to see how many of the children had created their own spoken word poems and how confidently they were able to express them up on stage infront of their peers and family. This year RIP MC will be working with the campers to help them perfect their craft and develop more vocabulary to express themselves.
So please Come Out this Thursday and Show your support.
