Final chance to help Odyssey ClayWorks on Indiegogo

Odyssey ClayWorks has been raising money to increase their programing. There are only two days left to donate so head over and check out their Indiegogo campaign www.indiegogo.com/projects/pots-for-life. They have a $25,000 goal and have great plans for the money raised.

We must raise a minimum of $25,000 in 2013 in order to continue our mission. The funds will allow us to host lectures and slide presentations (which are free and open to the public), continue after-school and summer kids programs, pay fair wages to instructors and provide studios for our resident artists. We are also instituting a new vocational program for autistic adults and a therapeutic program for veterans. Every little bit helps! 
Here's how we plan to use the funds:
$4778.....Two Brent Model 16 Adaptive/Wheelchair accesible potter's wheels
$4999.....Pug mill mixing machine for clay production
$500.......Material cost and labor to create two 100 sqaure foot studios for rental
$4000.....Scholarship fund for lower income students (This will afford 10 adults and 10 children the opportunity to participate in our programs this year)
$8000.....Specialist Instructor pay (8 hours per week for 50 weeks) at $25/hour (For new programming including a therapeutic program for veterans and a vocational program for autistic citizens) 
$3000......Resident artist project support grants (Will create six $500 mini grants to resident artists this year to complete a large scale project)
