Hi, I'm Andy. I'm a Story Pirate!
Story Pirates is a nationally respected education and media organization founded in 2003 to celebrate the words and ideas of young people. We are actors, writers, comedians and teachers. We go into schools and teach writing workshops to kids and turn those stories into an amazing sketch comedy/musical show for all the kids to see.
The result: kids discover that writing is fun! Check out some of our work here where we're featured on NBC Nightly News! For many kids it is an unforgettable life moment.
This past year our acclaimed programs were in place at over 200 schools from coast to coast. But this year we want to take our programs into even more schools. This is where YOU come in.
I'm running the New York City Marathon to raise money so we can take more of our programs into more low-income schools. I want as many kids as possible to learn that what they have to say is important. That their words and ideas matter.
My goal is to raise $3,000 for our education programs before the day of the marathon. I know with your help that is totally possible.
Just think: if kids can get now that their words and ideas matter, then that's a lesson they can take into their adulthood. We could create world leaders who lead with endless imagination and creativity. Who believe that their words and ideas matter. Imagine a world like that. I know it's possilbe.
Thank you! You rock!
