BENEFITING: CO LAB THEATER GROUP INC
ORGANIZER: CO LAB THEATER GROUP INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
I am so ecstatic to be joining the #imwithcolab campaign for Giving Tuesday again. Year over year, CO/LAB and all of its participants impress me with creativity & passion in the classroom, the ability to create a safe place for the actors, and the impact the organization has on everybody involved. I'm grateful to still be part of the Board and continue to do all I can to help this group of singing/dancing/smiling/laughing/acting/happy people!
My goal this year is to raise $2500 which supports the production costs for one class’ final performance (shows are expensive!)
I sincerely hope you'll join in!
A bit more info on the campaign...
As a non-profit, fundraising is so vital to our existence. Most of our classes and programs are offered to participants for little to no cost. We aim to provide access to all those who need us, regardless of financial background. But, we're in New York... so costs add up. We need things like classroom supplies and props, rehearsal studio space, theaters for performances and all the other fun things that make our programs happen.
For every $733 we raise, we fully support one actor for a semester at CO/LAB. If we hit our goal, we'll support all 50 of our actors for the spring semester. But we can't get there without your help!

A bit more on Giving Tuesday...
First there was Black Friday, then there was Cyber Monday, and now there is Giving Tuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. CO/LAB will keep celebrating for a whole month, so let's keep the spirit going!
