help asian american youth in oakland

Oakland Asian Students Educational Services (OASES) is a nonprofit organization in Oakland's Chinatown, serving a predominantly Asian American student population through after school services. Started by UC Berkeley students as a volunteer club over 25 years ago, OASES is now a full-fledged nonprofit providing tutoring, mentorship, and enrichment services to Oakland's underprivileged youth.

However, like many nonprofits in this economy, the organization is currently facing an economic crisis, and is actively searching for innovative ways to raise funds. Here's one way you can help.

OASES is currently participating in razoo.com's "March Goodness" contest, where the nonprofit with the most donor supporters by the end of March will win $10,000. If you take a look at the calendar, there's only a handful of days left in March, so they need your help!

All you have to do is visit OASES' razoo campaign page, donate $10 or more, and you'll be counted as an official OASES supporter and added to the count. If they get the most donors, they'll win the grand prize, which will go a long way towards continuing their mission.

To help out, just click on the link here, register and donate. You can donate as much as you want, as long as it's at least ten bucks. So for the price of a movie ticket, dinner, or club cover charge, you could help OASES raise that $10,000. Remember, it's not about how much they raise, it's about how many individual people donate at least $10 dollars (but you can certainly donate as much as you like).

But you only have until Tuesday, March 31. Any donations made after the deadline -- while certainly still welcome -- will not count towards the contest. Support an organization that's been doing good work in a city that's had so much negative press lately. To learn more about OASES and their mission, visit the organization's website here.
