After going public about the fundraiser, I used my program time to refresh my memory for the ideal campaign (how will #PilotingPostdevelopment ever succeed if we cannot support our work?).

What does this mean? For youth to be able to start utilizing #PilotingPostdevelopment programing, I need 8600 CAD. At this time, I have already raised 26%, which means I only need another 6352 CAD!
