Help Make Something Really Important Happen! - Our June-January Fundraiser

Virtually every facet of a child’s life into adulthood – and most crucially at the moment safer schools - will be positively affected by universal school adoption of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) skills.

Every tax-deductible dollar you donate to our new and latest fundraising campaign will speed this process along as it will purchase sorely-needed mass awareness of the enormous benefits of extending emotional intelligence (EQ) training into all schools beyond the 10% that flourish now. Parents, employers and the public can't request or demand what they don't know exists.

The Big EQ Campaign is a project of Earthways Foundation whose initial undertaking is a national awareness and mobilization campaign branded as "EQuip Our Kids!" that we desire to see become a national slogan - and goal - adopted by businesses, organizations and individuals.

Please consider the great upside, both for the young and our society, and be as generous as possible. Donations of any size can be made online here or, if you prefer to send a large check, make it to Earthways/BEQC at 20178 Rockport Way, Malibu, CA. 90265

Donations support the EQuip Our Kids! media and outreach campaign in many ways - most immediately in our social media advertising to inspire the public and the small amount we spend on grassroots support. Although a national campaign, we also work closely on a grassroots level with the California Social-Emotional Learning Alliance (SEL4CA.org), which consists of scores of organizations, educators and others who focus on parent and public mobilization to make EQ happen in all state schools. Our own overhead is minimal, (unless specified below donations are not used to support overhead or staff, which includes volunteers).Feel free to send us a note as to how you'd like to see your donation used to info@bigeqcampaign,org.

Here are some examples of how donations can be dispersed across many helpful fronts that advance the cause.
