Please help meet my brother, Glenn Dahl’s $25k match

Last I saw, we were $12K away from doing it…

“It’s not too late! Help us Level the Playing Field in the construction industry. A gift of any amount makes a life-changing difference for those in our community who need it most!”

Hats off…

to Jefferson D Smith, who not only contributed some cash, but took the time to promote what is my favorite cause ever: Constructing Hope.

“Almost everyone I love wants to help level the playing field. One way to do that is to support Constructing Hope. Pat Daniels (pictured — not me) is leading great work to give formerly incarcerated people a second chance at a useful life, through training in the trades. If she’s not an unsung hero, she’s certainly not sung loudly enough. Building a nonprofit from scratch is incredibly hard work — it isn’t thankless, but it is certainly under-thanked. And under-resourced. More should know about her work, and more of us should help.For my birthday this year, I am asking for gifts to Constructing Hope. The symbol and the mission is to level the playing field. Each person served by Constructing Hope adds to our town’s skillset and diversifies the trades (s/o to Maurice Rahming and others on that front) and, as the name says, constructs a bit more hope.…/…Then if you can find a level, take a picture, post it, help more people learn about the good work. (My shot is taken at warehouse / gallery of Dave Dahl — big shout out to Dave for his support and for introducing me to the work.)And help level the playing field.”

I’m supporting Constructing Hope in their #leveltheplayingfield campaign

to raise money and awareness for a program that makes more impact per dollar than any other I’m aware of!

Please donate or get involved by going to their website and then take a picture of yourself, your family, your dog—whatever—holding a level and create your own post, just like I’m doing. Believe me, it makes a difference. #LTPFphotochallenge #levelingtheplayingfield #constructinghope #inittogether

Constructing Hope Leveling the Playing Field Campaign – JULY 7-24, 2020

Constructing Hope is a cause very near and dear to my heart. They educate people of color, the formerly incarcerated and low-income adults in the trades. Two of those things applied to me back in 2001 when I was given a chance to learn a trade while incarcerated for my 4th time. That opportunity was transformative, and contributed to all of the successes that came later for me. When I discovered Constructing Hope, I knew I had found the perfect way to “give back”. I have committed substantial resources to help this incredible cause, and I invite you to join me. A gift of any amount will help Constructing Hope to continue their work to Level the Playing Field, and put people to work in the trades.
