Dear Wings for Crossover supporters,
Would you like to help Crossover and see a Taylor Swift concert from a VIP box on August 25 at the Staples Center? We will be auctioning off tickets in the next 3 weeks. See below.
Crossover Academy continues to inch towards a fully sustainable existence. Over the last couple of months, the entire country has faced difficulties with electrical power and severe rain storms. Those events have slowed our progress, but nonetheless, Crossover has been able to secure over 70 double desks. Each one is hand made by a welder, a painter, and a carpenter and the group can complete 1-2 desks a day (see attached photos). Before the next academic year starts, all of the students should have desks.
Plans are also in place to move the aquaponic system to the new school location. When it is moved, it will be made almost entirely of cement. All of the supplies have been purchased to move and install the aquaponic system at the new site. In addition, to deal with the chronic power problems, we have identified a solar company that can build a solar system strong enough to power the aquaponic system and the satellite. We just need a break in the rainy season to put further plans in place.
