Over the course of four weeks, we surpassed our goal of raising $10,000 to pay our artists twice what we'd be able to pay them alone. Thank You. We couldn't have done this without you.
Here's a Heartfelt Thank You from Daria:
So, guys. We did it. We raised a lot of money. And This is where I thank You.
If I were to say doing this play has been easy, I'd be lying. It's a beast of a project, with 10 actors, 3 spaces, and (as always) limited time and resources, with exhaustion but a few hours away and the list of priorities long.
But there have been many lights along the way (Director Elana McKelahan, our designers, and cast being foremost on the list.)
And the other bright light has been You: Our Donors.
You donate at all hours of the day, all days of the week, and it's been a fantastic joy to see that little ding of an alert pop up on my iphone, telling me someone has been kind.
Some of you I see weekly, some quarterly, and some I haven't seen since our last mutual graduation. And yet, you've given. You've given financially, but you've also given me hope, and support, and kindness. Making art is hard. Heck, making anything is hard. And you've made art with us.
Thank you for fighting big hard fights. You honor us by being in our corner.
Here's to love, here's to diamonds, and here's to you.
With gratitude that extends beyond the shine of diamonds, we thank our donors:
