    RAISE YOUR VOICE: For the last 48 hours of our campaign, we're asking as many people as possible to raise their voice in solidarity with The Waiting Room by donating just $1. You won't change the world with this pledge, but you will show your support. And we will show our gratitude by THANKING YOU PERSONALLY on our official website. A pledge of $1 carries as much weight as a pledge of $1,000 because every voice matters and together we can create real impact! So please RAISE YOUR VOICE and help these stories be seen and told across the country.
