Spring Selection Showcase

May 10, 2017


We wanted to thank you all again for your support during our time with WarriorFunder! Without your help, we would have not been able to hold our Spring Selection Showcase and gotten to where we are today. We are pleased to have held an amazing Spring Selection Showcase this year where we were able to award funding to a total of 7 social innovative projects that will help create a lasting positive impact on our Wayne State University community! 

Below is a list of the 7 Social Innovative Projects that were awarded funding this year: 

Period: Period aims to sustainably provide homeless women of Detroit with menstrual products and reduce the stigma related to periods

todoolie: todoolie is an innovative app that provide simple clock-in and job finding technology put together for workers of any background to utilize 

Students Feeding Students: Students Feeding Students brings a way to eat healthy to campus and make it easy for students to have access to this food through distribution

Thrive: Thrive's goal is to deliver care packages to hospital patients by raising funds through "smile bowls" and shows people that anyone can thrive through simple acts of kindness

Blueprints for Pangaea: Blueprints for Pangaea at WSU strives to collect unused hospital supplies and ship them overseas to countries in need, and have already shipped $1.5 M worth of materials

Sheeplife: Sheeplife finds a way to connect women to their incarcerated family members through workshops and writing to rebuild relationships

The Goddess Experience: The Goddess Experience aims to instill confidence in girls by involving them in cultural goddesses and giving them positive role models to look up to

Again, thank you so much for your support!!!!
