The lab wants to (belatedly) thank everyone who donated during Cal’s Big Give a couple weeks ago! With your help, we raised almost one thousand dollars! All of us from Hearst-Annex thank you and are hyped to use your funds to make our space even RAD-er & MAD-er![ID: Thank you card on a cerulean-esque blue background. In the center of the page is a photo, in an oval frame, of lab members with big smiles, making hearts with their hands. Nate, in the middle of the photo, holds a laser-printed circular wooden sign with the ADA symbol of access, with the first half of the wheelchair replaced by half a heart (it’s very cute). The photo has a navy and gold christmas light graphic at the top of the card. Underneath the photo, text reads: “Big Thanks Big Give Donors from RadMadLab!” To the right of this text is the lab’s mascott, Skuzzy the bear, holding a pink heart ballon with their right paw]#biggive #berkeley #calbiggive #ucberkeley #radmadlab #disabilitycentereddesign … See MoreSee Less
