Thank you for growing support, stars! Over $2500 pledged, $2500 to go in final 28 hours. Let's do it!
Abundant gratitude for your continued and new connection, support here as we widen the circle of stars connected to this sky of poetry and practice. Thanks to each of you who's pledged support, increased your level, reached out to loved ones and comrades these last couple days. Because of your love and labor, we've reached over 50% of the goal!
As Audre Lorde has reminded us, Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before. I know each of our budgets is stretched, and I'm so thankful you've prioritized movement poetry that practices this bridge-building in call and response with the work that feeds us.
We now have 28 hours left to make it happen. Please take a minute to tell your friends to join us today! I'm so encouraged and humbled by your response and support, and would be so honored by your continued support as we close this campaign. Whatever you can do today, within right effort, would mean so much to me and all of us who've been part of growing this work.
Thank you stars.
with love and gratitude,
PS. Can you take a minute today to think of 2 people who'd love to give $15 to hear and grow this movement poetry, and ask them? (Or a few who'd love to give $5, 1 who'd love to give $50, $100, $200?) Can you (re)share this Kickstarter online on Facebook or Twitter, your email, with a personal note of encouragement during this final push?
