we might just have to, unless we raise $2,250 by next Thursday-- a week from today. Will you help?
The Writer's Garret received an award notice for $750 from the Texas Commission on the Arts for a pilot program that (unfortunately) requires more funding in order to launch. "LifeLines" pairs aging seniors with their grandchildren, who will help record the story of their lives.
Immigrant grandparents will have a chance to share their life's journeys, perhaps in translation. Seniors struggling with Alzheimer's will find their memories reordered and recorded to reach generations to come. Families, severed by long-standing emotional rifts, will have a personal, creative connection to pull together again. Participants may share their stories and pictures on-line through The Garret website--inspiring us all. The full $3,000 will pay instructors and cover supplies, program coordination, and project overhead (e.g., background checks, insurance, etc.) We welcome all support to help make "LifeLines" a reality. Please help by making a donation or calling in a pledge to (214) 828-1715. Thank you so very much!
