Fundraiser - Help us Build First Home (East Bay CORE)

Postby honey_b_temple » Sat May 04, 2013 8:26 am

The idea behind the First Home is to dig deep into our collective past and revive shared ancestral memories. The first homes built by all of our ancestors after leaving the caves were huts made of grass mats. The huts were portable and temporary and could be set up by standing the mats on end and unrolling them into a spiral pattern. The resulting spiral often approximated a Fibonacci sequence, a form found in nature in everything from the pattern of seeds in a sunflower, to the shell of a nautilus, to the cloud formation of a hurricane. The grass hut dwellings of the Native Americans, who lived in what we now call the East Bay for thousands of years, were very much like these early structures. Like them, our First Home will be portable and temporary but made of wood, mostly recycled and of small dimensions, approximating a thatched form. The construction will be of a series of panels, each hand-decorated by a member of our community, expressing our individuality within the shared form of the community.

Unfortunately, if we don’t have funding this beautiful and meaningful piece of art will never see the playa. It takes money to build! Building supplies, rent, transport, and lighting can all be costly. Please help support the East Bay First Home by making a contribution!

$50 donation will receive a lovely glass pendant with the First Home color graphic, and a small First Home print, suitable for framing.

$100 donation will receive a lovely glass pendant with the First Home color graphic; a medium size First Home print, suitable for framing; and a blinky light-up logo cup.

$150 donation will receive a lovely glass pendant with the First Home color graphic; a large size First Home print, suitable for framing; a blinky light-up logo cup; and a gorgeous hand made zinc or pewter pendant of the First Home design.

$200 donation will receive all of the above and in addition a special red wine, bottled exclusively for the East Bay CORE project, featuring our own custom label in refillable liter bottles.

You mean like they pay for your camp? Oh, that's right - I'm paying for your camp out of my ticket cost.

For someone who lives off an Org department while you're out there, you've got a lot of hostility towards people who don't.
