Double your Tour de Streets impact!
Is it just us, or has this summer flown by? Somehow, Tour de Streets is only ten days away, and we still have a lot of funds to raise.
But there's good news: thanks to a matching gift from a generous anonymous donor, you can double your impact up to $10K!
And don't forget that many employers will match donations made by their employees. Don't forget to check — you might even be able to quadruple your impact. What an incredible possibility!

From Bus Boarding to Flower Bombing
The City of Chelsea, in partnership with Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP), transformed a level-boarding bus platform into "Flower Walk." "Flower Walk" is a nature, transit, and art experience designed and installed by AdHoc Industries, La Colaborativa, Studioful Design, the HAPI, and several local artists.
Visit the bus stop at the corner of Broadway and Third Street in Chelsea, where you can see photos of the installation process!
Thank you, Melissa!
Earlier this month we said goodbye and thank you to our summer Community Engagement Intern, Melissa White. Melissa was a key contributor to our summer outreach events and we are so grateful for all of her work! We were sad to see her internship conclude, but we wish her the best of luck in starting another school year at MIT!
