Push Yourself - Push Each Other
is an acronym for:
Ascension Through Everlasting YOUnity
The Concept Breakdown
ASCEND – to move, climb or go upward; rise; to gain or succeed; acquire.
EVERLASTING – lasting or continuing indefinitely; forever; eternal duration, timeless.
UNITY – the state of being one; a whole as combining all its parts into one; oneness.
The ATEY Bands Campaign was created to perpetuate the idea that "it takes a village to raise a child."
The biproduct of my service to this principle is what the ‘ATEY Bands Campaign’ functionality is; to demonstrate that not only is it beneficial to push yourself and achieve, but it is valuable to you and your peers to push them as well, and as a result you can elevate yours and their existences.
The wrist bands will sell for $5.00 each, with the option for any supporter to donate more through the donate tab below.
50% of the profits from this campaign (including donations beyond wristband purchases) will be used to begin the ATEY Bands Scholarship Fund. Every dollar makes a difference on the path to higher education.
This scholarship fund will provide two high school students (a young man and a young woman who attend an LAUSD or LA Charter School) with money to use towards their tuition, room and board, fees, etc..
25% of the profits will be used towards the reproduction of more wristbands and other campaign paraphernalia to gain more support for the initiative.
25% of the profits will be used in association with the production company Clay Dub Music for curriculum curation for summer programs (including writing & recording music), musical and promotional content/equipment, licensing, operations, branding, marketing, etc…
