Great Tidings for a Wonderful New Year

Happy New Year!  As we enter 2012, we are so grateful for all the support we've received from you, our generous donors.  We exceeded our expectations in the Global Giving Open Challenge, earning a permanent spot in partnership with their organization, and we have raised important funds that will allow us to provide critically-needed arts-based literacy programs in our region.  THANK YOU!

A few of the places that will immediately benefit from your generous gifts:

  • Tyler Elementary School, Washington DC
  • National Children's Museum's Launch Zone Family Programs, Washington DC
  • Pathways Alternative School, Wheaton, MD

We hope you find this partnership valuable and worthwhile. We are going to keep raising the bar as the more money we raise the more programs we can offer. We know the economy is tough, so thank you for investing your hard-earned money on our cause. Please consider telling your friends and family about our project - share the link on your blogs or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation. You know your friends and family best, so use your own words - tell them why you chose our project and what it means to you.

We will keep you updated on further programs we are able to provide through your support with ongoing project reports.  We invite you to visit our website where you can view our public calendar, see video clips of past programs, and learn more about our artistic and administrative teams.  Please also look for an updated donor page on our website www.storytapestries.com which will list all of our supporters by name!  Furthermore, by visiting our website, or by sending an email to administrator@storytapestries.com, you can request to start receiving e-newsletters now, if you are not already a subscriber.

Additonally, several donors expressed confusion over the phrase, the DC Metro Area.  We want to let you know that we have updated the wording on our project to make it clearer as our programs organizations in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to sharing with you as we combat illiteracy in 2012!

Best wishes for the new year,
Arianna Ross and
the Story Tapestries Team
