Hello, After an extremely difficult week filled with many moments of questioning of what exactly I had gotten myself into I had a beautiful moment of clarity when I got to watch the students performing and preparing for the big Perkins gala. Hearing them belt their hearts out and shake and dance around washed away any feelings of doubt that were starting to creep in to my head. This is their story and it is my job to help them tell it, I realized it really is just as simple as that. I regained my focus and got right back to work.
Then I had the amazing surprise of checking my email and seeing that a generous donation had come from the kindness of a total stranger who was clearly as touched by these students as all of you are. And then minutes after receiving a frantic phone call from my dad who had finally figured out how to master the art of making an online payment and was able to push us to 12K.
With one week left to raise the 4,000 dollars needed to double our initial goal to cover the costs of production and post-production, I am putting out a very special request to all the friends and supporters of Teach Me How To Sea...That each of you would please pass on the link to one friend and ask them to do the same, I know we can do this!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Mara and "The Senior Class"
