i am We Global Village End of Year Appeal
Please support us in meeting our matching goal of $20,000
A generous donor will match our first $20,000 in donations!
As the first year of i am We Global Village closes out, we have much to reflect on and truly be grateful for. What’s top of mind for me is the human beings with whom we are privileged to partner, share healing spaces, experience community, and make meaning in order to make change. Our core belief that all people are worthy and interrelated continues to prove itself.
Many of you joined us in the Matching Campaign for the Traveling Arts Toolkit, that youth can use in their art forms. The heart-felt sharing and dreaming that surfaced through this work speak to the healing power of creative expression when supported in community. Young people and staff at the Juvenile Detention Center and Shelter Home have contributed to this work as well as our collaboration with the Middleton Youth Center. In addition, several new opportunities for programming in the Madison Metropolitan School district are in the planning stages and as well as a proposed collaboration at the MYArts space in Madison.
As we prepare to move into 2023, we ask you to consider an end-of-year gift to i am We Global Village to support us in continuing this important work. We believe in the collective spirit and power of people and what’s possible through compassion, love and unity. i am We.
In Gratitude and Community,
Rudy Bankston, Executive Director
