own the day

it’s been a while since we’ve talked about architecture for humanity here. it’s no secret i am a huge fan of their work, their principles, and most of all, their sincerity. a few days back i received mr. sinclair’s most recent newsletter in which it describes a shift in their approach to funding all the great work they do. understandably frustrated with the snails pace and red tape associated with enticing large corporations to donate money, mr. sinclair and afh have shifted their focus back to small donations from private individuals. hoping to be able to recapture the sort of grass-roots funding they received in year’s past, afh has started a brilliant program called “own the day.” it’s simple, donate one day’s worth of your salary/wages and you can choose a day to own at afh. their website describes the program more fully and naturally you can donate as much or as little as you want, as every little bit helps. hop on over to their website and look around. if you like the architectural philanthropy you see send them a few dollars. i promise it will be money well spent. carpe diem!
