BENEFITING: JARADOA THEATER INC
My non-profit theater company, Jaradoa Theater, is pretty awesome: we do one show a year, and take our theater and literacy programming to schools, alternative to incarceration programs, and shelters fro homeless and runaway teens throughout New York City. We also perform twice a month for elderly in nursing homes in the 5 boroughs, singing standards and doing live readings of radio plays they may have heard in the '40s and '50s. Our mission is to promote mercy, beauty and truth through performance and service; and most of these programs are provided at no cost to the participants. We're working on a shoestring budget, and everyone has to pitch in. I don't have any connections with deep-pocketed donors, but I do have an internet connection, and I hope to use it to accomplish my goal of raising $5,000 in individual donations for the company I love.
