THE STORY:

You know I’m a movie lover (right?). So it might not seem surprising to you that I’ve chosen to participate in BAM’s 24-Hour Movie Marathon: an entire day of movies, both contemporary and classic, at Brooklyn’s oldest performing arts institution.
 
But I’m not doing it for the movies. I’m doing it for the kids.
 
I’m raising money to help an organization I love make a difference in the community—a community of over 30,000 students, teachers, and families. I’m supporting BAM’s arts education programs and I'd love it if you could help. 

BAM is an incredible arts organization and every dollar I raise will help give kids greater access to the amazing performances, movies, after-school programs, and workshops that BAM offers. Just $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.

I want to help as many kids as possible and I have the stamina, the passion, and the drive to do what I love: Watch movies for 24 hours! Please donate to my fundraiser. It's for an excellent cause and will make a huge difference in the lives of so many New York kids.

If you sponsor me $25, consider it a dare for me to stay awake through an entire film during this marathon.

If I fall asleep during your movie, I will match your donation.  (You can trust me.  I never cheat.)
