Hi Dear Funders,
My name is Melisa and I am currently a soon-to-be-senior at UC Berkeley. I care about positive change and my dream is to be a social entrepreneur.

Immensely Alive is a social venture that aims to raise charity donations from 50% of the profits. I care about both consumers and causes and my mission is to forge a relationship between them. My first product is Jelly the Rainbow Whale, but once I reach a higher level of funding I can also roll out other designs. 

Future causes include: mental health, community development projects, and breast cancer fundraising (I participated in a Relay for Life and it was a very touching experience)

My Team is pretty amazing if you ask me:

               

Left to Right: Scott (our PR guy), Mike (the Ballon Artist and Highlighter Model), Ben (Contributing Writer), Israel (our Researched) and Jessica (our Artistic Director)

Where is the Money Going?

The $2,000 will be spent on the manufacturing of Jelly the Whale with organic materials, the packaging, the stickers, and the posters. Any surplus product will be sold through the website or in local shops to raise more money for charity.

The upper level perks are for those who desire to be more altruistic or who desire to be part of the designing process of future products.

WHAT IS JELLY DOING?
Jelly is going to personally [whalesonally] support a youth program in the Bay Area that helps these young people get the education, support, and family/ community that they need. I am currently looking into sfcenter.org and their youth program. The contribution isn't just about the amazing program that is already in place, but it is also about making noise. My dear friend who recommended the SF LGBT Center said that the youth program is in need of marketing capital, not only of having these services but drawing people in to benefit from them.

SF LGBT Community Center

This is just one possibility, but I am open to any suggestions. I only ask that the organization or movement be in the Bay Area and that it be transparent regarding its needs and cash flow.

I Want to Do MORE, What Can I Do?

I know that it's not possible to give any amount of money sometimes but that doesn't mean you can't support the project! 

1) SHARE: Use the sharing tools provided on the campaign, follow updates on the Immensely Alive Facebook Page and tell your friends!
2) GIFT: This product is a great gift for supporters of gender rights or for young children since the plushies are organic and contain no hard components (tags can be cut off)
3) BLOG: Write your thoughts on the cause and spread awareness about gender rights issues
4) PARTICIPATE in the Art Contest!
