Hi there friends,
While the How Philly Moves photo sessions you've helped fund are still a long ways away (September), there's so much going on with this project right now that I had to share a few more things with you:
Installation of the mural has begun at the airport! [info]
Projections continue every night of PIFA at the Kimmel Center through May 1! [info]
Great press coverage in the City Paper, JUMP Philly, and more... [info]
PPS It's going to be time to start sending your thank you gifts soon, so keep an eye out for another email from Kickstarter that will ask for your addresses...
I took a little break from the computer to go to a dance performance this evening, and found out during intermission that we'd hit the threshold.
This is amazing.
I am somewhat overwhelmed, and deeply grateful to you all.
I'll follow up with more soon, but for right now, THANK YOU!
PS That's not me below, but kind of captures the sentiment right now...
You. Are. All. Amazing.
There is $1,000 to the threshold. I think we are on track to make it. Fingers crossed!
Please remind your friends that they can keep contributing until 7:57 AM tomorrow morning. $25k is the threshold, but the sky is the limit and if we raise more money we can include more participants!
Here's another story of the dancers to share with you:
Rachel Federman-Morales, a forty-one-year-old resident of South Philadelphia, was excited to be a part of How Philly Moves because it is “a wonderful opportunity to...show Philadelphia the range and diversity in the dance world.” After a career as a professional ballerina, Federman-Morales now practices dance/movement therapy, currently working as a dance/movement therapist at HMS School for Children with Cerebral Palsy. Federman-Morales attended and danced in the How Philly Moves photo shoot with one of her stu- dents, Eli Apple.
Elisheva Apple, a twenty-one-year-old student of Lower Merion, PA, was invited to partici- pate in the How Philly Moves photo shoot by her Dance/Movement Therapist, Rachel Federman-Morales. As a student with cerebral palsy, Apple first began dancing at HMS School for Children with Cerebral Palsy, where she dances and performs in collaborative, modern dance projects, which combines disabled and able-bodied dancers. As Apple says, “I like to dance because I feel good when I am dancing and it makes me feel relaxed.” She is very excited to be a part of this mural.
