Documentary: LGBT Elders:
Friday, November 21, 2008
Greetings!
I am contacting you to ask you to become involved with our project:  "Standing on
the Bones of Our Ancestors: Exploring the Role of the Queer Tribal Elder;"  A
documentary that illuminates the altruistic and spiritual dimensions of what it means
to be a member of our (GLBTQ) Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer
community and explores the vital need for elders to emerge in our communities. It is
an incredibly queer affirming & spiritually moving film. Principal photography is
complete and a substantial preliminary edit is in progress. Please consider a
tax-deductable donation toward post-production and completion of this worthy
project. You can make a secure tax-deductible donation online through Click and
Pledge, (Click and Pledge deducts a 4.5% processing fee) on our website at
http://www.standingonthebones.com or if you would rather write a check please
it payable to: Intermedia Arts (Bones Project)

Winter Clothes Drive for District 202:
Hello All:
 
I am informally organizing a hat, mitten/gloves, scarf, socks, sweaters, coat drive for
District 202. When I was there this week sadly there was only one hat in the winter
supplies. I am making a request of you and here is what it is:
 
Look through your closets for any slightly used winter stuff that you can part with
When you are out if you see winter items and can afford to buy some please do
Send this email to friends - family - whoever you thing is willing and able to help
This is about basic necessity for winter - and about providing for our young people.
 
You can drop the items off at District 202 during their open hours or you can drop them off at my office (see address below)
And I will get them there.
