1. We’ve raised over $6k in the first two days of the campaign! If things keep moving along at this pace, we should be fully funded in no time. If we manage to exceed the funding goal, I’ll be able to collect stories and portraits in more places that aren’t currently on my list (I have my eye on Wyoming and Montana—there are some incredible people I’d like to meet out there). All that said, please continue to share the link as much as you possibly can, especially on Facebook. Here it is: http://livethroughthis.org/ks
2. I’ll be speaking about Live Through This at the spring benefit for the Brooklyn College chapter of TWLOHA tomorrow night. If you would like to attend, tickets are $5. It’s at the Macalulay Honors College, 35 W 67th St, at 6pm. (I’m terrified. Wish me luck?)
3. We’re having a Live Through This fundraising party at TUFFET next Thursday night, 2/28, at 7:30pm. TUFFET is located at 286 Graham Avenue in Brooklyn. There will be large-scale prints of the portraits on display, and several of the people who have been so brave as to share their stories will be on-hand for you to meet. You can RSVP on Facebook here. I would love it if you’d come out and support the project, but I also have incentives!
And there you have it. I’m going to shut up now. Thank you so much for your support. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to see this project coming to life the way it has over the past couple of days.
