This is the nonprofit version of the FredBoard. All proceeds from sales of this item will go to support the Mothership HackerMoms hackerspace in Oakland, California.
Mothership HackerMoms is a women's hackerspace made up of mothers that gives them the time and personal space they need to explore their creativity while having on-site child care to take care of the young ones. There are many constraints placed on mothers since they have to constantly look after their children, spend time with them, and make sure that there is adequate child care if they leave their children. A hackerspace dedicated to moms allows the mothers to stay sane, be creative, and do something for themselves without feeling guilty. Best of all, the children get immersed in the creative, maker, artist, and hacker community while they're young and get to see it first hand from their favorite person...their mommy!*
HackerMoms features on-site child care while the moms attend hands-on workshops or projects on art, DIY, and hacking. There's nothing better than being a child and watching your mom attend a lockpicking workshop. They meet every Thursday and two Sundays a month.
The first goal of this fundraising project is to get enough funds for HackerMoms to move into their own space. After that, then the goal will be to assist them in paying rent until they can raise enough funds on their own to cover it. Along with purchasing this item, you can also donate to their hackerspace fund on their home page. Thanks for your support!
