A group of Charlotte Mecklenburg education advocates has launched an effort to help raise funds for students who lack access to the high speed internet which has become so essential to K-12 education during the COVID19 pandemic.
The screen printing project celebrates the creativity and resilience of North Carolina’s educators and students who have transitioned to online learning through T-shirts that deem them “Virtually Unstoppable.”
According to the CMS Foundation, more than 16,000 households with CMS students don’t have access to the internet. Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools has committed $1 million to providing hotspots for those families. The Foundation has set a goal of raising $3.2 million to ensure 12 months of internet service for anyone receiving a hotspot.
In a nod to a year like no other, Virtually Unstoppable shirts are available for $20.20, with 100% of proceeds (roughly 75% of the cost) going to the CMS Foundation’s effort.
