$50 for 50 by 50 #12: #YESWECODE

I’m turning 50 this year and instead of whining about it, I’m trying to do something positive by donating $50 to 50 different charities before I’m 50 years old.

As I have mentioned on this blog I am a big fan of Prince and his death has rocked me in a lot of ways. I don’t understand a world in which Prince isn’t around. Makes no sense to me.

But in an effort to do good out of such lousy, I have made my next 50x50x50 donation to an organization that Prince supported, #YESWECODE. Driven by Van Jones’ Rebuild the Dream organization, #YEWECODE aims to get 100,000 low-opportunity young people into high paying technology jobs through training, employment resources, and more. This would have been a cool thing to support even if Prince wasn’t involved but since he was it makes it even cooler.
