Do you want to support Green Ribbon Schools and Healthivores, while helping Austin reach the goal of raising $1 Million in 24 hours for over 330 non-profits?  Become an INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISER for Cyberways and Waterways (the non-profit that brings you the GRS and Healthivores programs) during the Amplify Austin Event.  Sign up to have your very own fundraising page, set your own fundraising goal, and spread the word to friends and family.

As an added bonus, once we reach 30 donors during that 24 hours period, Cyberways and Waterways will qualify for a portion of the $100,000 that University Federal Credit Union has donated to Amplify Austin. So your donation goes even further.

Why should you help?

Today’s children are the first generation in two centuries facing a shorter life expectancy than their parents. This shortened life span stems from poor physical and mental health and education deficiencies. Cyberways and Waterways develops programs that make learning and taking action around personal health, sustainability and STEM subjects fun for children, so we can reverse this alarming trend.

As you know, the Green Ribbon Schools and Healthivores programs are FREE to any K-12 private or public school.   Currently we have 90+ schools participating in Austin and close to 800 nationwide. We want to make sure we can keep the program free as we grow, and this is a great opportunity for you to help assure that we can.
