$234 to Go!! 13 Hours! We Can Do It!!
I have to send out one more blast before the campaign is over. We can do it! 42 of you have stepped up to kick us past our initial goal. We surpassed it so so fast—12 days. Thank you.
Getting us to $2,500 means that our LA rehearsal & performance space is covered, not to mention our Facebook ad. That $500 means a lot. We're awfully good at stretching dollars but things cost what they cost.
If you, or any of your friends of networks, can kick us $5 or $10, we're so so close only $234. to go. I know we can do it. I know you believe we can, too.
I leave for L.A. on Tuesday. As you know, part of the project is subsidized, or free, community-based writing/performance workshops. And we've got two (almost 3!!) set up during my time in LA. Two with artists, the other with high school students. Plus, Thom is visiting his alma mater, Cal State LA, to meet with students in the Philosophy Dept. We've got Douglas Lee in for saw and LA rehearsals start Wednesday. Yee-hah! Here we go. If you want to drop into a rehearsal just shoot me an email.
Oh, and let me tell you, that calf fights back.
$234. We can do it. Thank you.
