Shanties to the Max!
One of the challenges we’re faced with when doing this project is, as it always is, money. There never seems to be enough to go around. As per usual, we artists are asking for it. You know, so we can buy paint and fabric and the stuff to make art. To show you. This is really all for you, dear patrons.
Luckily, the ASP is participating in two very important fundraisers here in MN. The first is being promoted by your favorite news station, KARE 11. The Gannett Foundation is giving an $11,000 grant to one of 11 MN non-profit organizations, and ASP is one of them. Your favorite one. Voting decides which non-profit is awarded the grant. You can vote for ASP on KARE 11’s facebook page once a day until November 16th. All your friends can vote for ASP too, so you should tell them.
While you are sharing that around facebook, please also remember Give to the Max Day which is November 16th. Never heard of it? Give to the Max is a day for Minnesotans to come together to raise as much money as possible for nonprofits in 24 hours – starting at midnight on November 16 through midnight on November 17 by donating through the GiveMN website. During this time, you have the opportunity to double your donation to the Art Shanty Projects! This goes for all of your favorite non-profit organizations like the Bedlam Theatre, Heart of the Beast and Springboard for the Arts, just to name a few. Really, I don’t know anyone who can make a buck stretch farther than these folks, and we sure do appreciate it!
