Calling All Crows is currently working to raise $7,500 by April 15. Here, our Executive Director, Jen Hallee Little shares why supporting our organization is about more than simply donating--it's about inclusion in a movement dedicated social change. Read on and please consider making a gift to CAC today.
There are a few things that are always worth making time for... Love. Family. Lasting friendships. Kindness. Courtesy. Making a good meal. Sleep. Pursuing a passion. Giving back to a cause you care about. Building a life of purpose. I feel so incredibly grateful that my life includes many opportunities to make time for all of those (though maybe not the sleep part with a two year old and pregnancy insomnia with one on the way!)...
I also find that many are involved in my work at Calling All Crows. When I came to work here three years ago, I knew I was becoming a part of something really special--I had attended an Annual Benefit Weekend in 2009 and felt the energy of the ABW experience and the dedication of the Calling All Crows community--but I really had no idea how inspiring it would be.
From Chad and Sybil’s tireless but humble pursuit of justice, women’s rights, and really, just altogether goodness for humankind… to the incredible passion and willingness of our network of volunteers, Alternative Break Tour alumni, community organizers, and all of those familiar faces we see whenever we hold events or are out on tour… to the generous support of our Crow Club members and donors who really share the belief that there is something special when music and service/activism comes together. I am continually motivated to lead this organization in the best way possible because of all of you.
This year and in the next few years, we're strengthening our model of fan engagement and building our reputation as a non-profit with tangible opportunities to work for social change for women. As we experience changes within the music industry, and as our co-founder Chadwick Stokes’ career evolves, we find we must respond and adapt to continue to provide the types of opportunities that are so meaningful for you and impactful in the world. That means more reliance on individuals who are willing to support our work financially to sustain and grow our movement. It is what will allow us to stay on the road in an industry that is hungry for engagement in social issues and inspired by these efforts.
We’ve got 15 days to meet our spring goal of $7,500 by April 15 - so don’t wait, make a gift today! You can make a one-time donation on our website, or join the Crow Club and make a long-term commitment. Donate at least $50 by April 15 or join the Crow Club at the $10/month or more level and receive a CAC gift pack that includes stickers and an "I'm with her." t-shirt!
Thank you in advance for your support and for making Calling All Crows one of the things for which it is worth making time.
