A TELETHON, A GALA, AND A BIRTHDAY PARTY IN 24 HOURS
We wanted to raise $10,000, WE RAISED $15,103!!!
"...it was a practical demonstration of what fundraising should and could be—unpretentious art creation and engagement. We felt immediately welcomed into this community of creators and thinkers for the evening"
"The evening was engaging and remarkably well-done: a stunning lineup of artists and performers included a singer in Spanish, a composer from Manhattan’s long-established LaMama Experimental Theater, as well as comediennes, singers, and dancers, including a tap-dancing and echo-design artist."
"Raja’s event felt like the future of fundraising - engaging, noncommittal, and global."

Thank you to Kickstarter, to friends and family who supported this, and thank you to you! The 241 people who made this happen for us! The generosity that outpoured to support the feath3r theorywas astounding, remarkable, and stupefying. I was both grateful and shocked. We have had such a difficult year seeking institutional support, but with such a deep desire to grow, your encouragement is unimaginably generous and sustains us. We attempted to raise $10,000 and we passed that to reach $15,103. We are looking forward to a fantastic year! Please keep up with us as we move into the next phase of our work and structure.
