EVENT: BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
I am pulling an all-nighter for kids and arts education!
This is the marathon I have been training for my whole life.
24 hours worth of great movie-watching in support of a cause I am passionate about.
BAM, my preferred cinema and where I spend a good amount of my life, is not only an anchor of the Brooklyn community, they also provide arts-based education for kids.
BAM Education serves more than 37,000 students, teachers and parents each year (85% from underserved communities). They employ 40 teaching artists and provide more than 1,800 arts workshops in 222 schools.
Proceeds from this marathon directly benefit students K-12 through BAM Education’s in- and after-school programs in dance, theater, poetry, film criticism, and more.
Please donate to my fundraiser so I can help as many kids as possible! It's for an excellent cause and will make a huge difference in the lives of so many New York kids.
Here are a few examples of the impact your support can have:
- $25 helps get one kid involved in Arts & Justice, a free after-school program in which high school students create original theater works about social justice issues.
- $50 gets 10 kids to and from BAM every week for a free after-school program
- $75 makes it possible for three families to get ticket assistance to attend a live performance
- $150 helps one special-needs class participate in a 11-week in-school course in writing, reading, and performing poetry
- $1,000 allows 100 families to attend a screening at the 17th Annual BAMkids Film Festival.
