GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED MAY 5TH HITS 60%
We asked people to write something about the Dreamline Covid Response Program that we’re funding. Here’s what some of them said:
“Dreamline offers a simple yet profound way to connect the human family in a time of social distancing.” –Creator of We, the World’s Climate Collaboratory
“Dreamline’s online program gives kids an opportunity to dream big – beyond the frustrations and limitations of our current situation. Having meaningful goals to work towards will energize them and the online Dreamline will help them feel connected to other kids at a time when connections are harder to come by.” –Elementary School Teacher, Philadelphia, PA
“Now more than ever, the health and security of our planet depends on the realization that our local wellbeing is connected to global actions. Dreamline enables youth to connect online to achieve this realization and to start brainstorming ways to transform the world for the better, using others’ creative ideas as inspiration.” –Doctoral Student at Columbia Teachers College working at the college level in rural Mexico.

FOCUS AND FEELING
DREAMLINE’S NEW PROGRAM ASSISTANT BRINGS MORE POWER TO CONNECTED DREAMERS
We are thrilled to have the skillful focus of Dreamline’s newest staff member Camille Baechler just when we need it most! Camille’s technical facilitation of our Zoom sessions AND her capacity to make everyone feel at home in the digital classroom–students and teachers alike–is a huge plus for our program.
Camille is a recent graduate of Bryn Mawr College. In her own words, she is “a student of life interested in self awareness, freedom, and compassion – and loves nature, writing, travel, and taking care of loved ones.”
