Building a Stage
As a species, we are storytellers.
It is built into us to share and tell stories
and there are so many benefits:
Improves social emotional skills
Promotes leadership and teamwork
Provides opportunities for artistic expression
Encourages multi-age relationship building and teamwork
Fosters a love of the arts
Cultivates joy and pride upon the culmination of their efforts
The kids decided they want their own stage and we couldn’t agree more! They kicked off fundraising on their own by putting on a play they wrote, directed, and starred in at our very first Spring Fest. They collected money for tickets, raising $265. We have decided to match that and kick off a bigger fundraiser of $6000 to build them their very own stage on our campus so they can spend hours dreaming, creating, and acting out their feelings and ideas. Will you join us and invest in a child’s right to dream big?
But don’t take it from us, watch this short clip and hear directly from these kids as to why this matters to them!
