Yang Yang Shi, Opening Doors Foundation, San Jose, California

bowlingThe main benefit of the grant was not so much in the monetary benefit but rather in the publicity benefit. As a result of the grant being posted online and being featured on Pollination’s Huffington blog post; we were given an air of legitimacy. We were able to raise thousands of dollars in donations as a result. We also had alot of talented people join us because of that added legitimacy.  We went from having just 20 volunteers to over 80 volunteers helping over 200-300 poor students from the low income suburbs of LA or the hood in San Jose.
