The orange centerpiece from your main 3x3
I am doing a project for school where I teach underprivileged kids how to solve the Rubiks cube:

In order to be successful in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), one must be good at critical and logical thinking. Cubing not only helps to greatly strengthen this, but it also helps increase memory, patience, and concentration. 21% of kids in the USA live below the poverty line, with this percentage increasing as many refugees coming to the country. Many of these kids are having a hard time seeing the end of the tunnel as they look forward to their careers. When I was first learning to solve the cube, I got stuck on the middle layer, and I thought I was never going to be able to solve it. Now I can solve the cube in under 30 seconds. I want to share that exhilaration with others and show others that anything is possible.

This connects to the UNICEF global goals because it will hopefully reduce the number of children in poverty dropping out of school and improve stem performance. This will help to improve good health, quality education, and help eliminate poverty.

We are currently in the funding stage of our project. The cost to teach one child is only $3. This covers one Speedcube (mailing) and a folder including physical and online resources. We are planning on teaching 3x3 to kids ages 7 and up, and 2x2 to ages 6 and below. Currently, this is just a local project for kids in Austin, Texas, and nearby. However, if the results are successful, we may expand to help more kids.
If you are interested in donating, please PM me. Donate whatever you can to make a big difference!

I will post updates here.

Could I help spread this project to Washington state? A lot of people here would benefit from this project.
That would be wonderful, please let me know how you intend to promote us, so I can possibly help out!

Im interested, in what you have done so far. Comprehensible reports about your work could convince me.

Till now I have only seen declarations of intent.
We just started the project over one month ago. Most of the effort so far has gone into creating and figuring out the idea and designing and building the website. We are currently still in the funding stage of the project. However, I will be updating this thread with reports and updates as we go along.
