Conspire to Change Lives

8.25.2011

Hello lovelies!  I typically don't use this as a forum for solicitation but I wanted to tell you about an awesome project my dear friend Lindsey is involved with.  Lindsey and I went to college together in Chicago and shortly after I left for California, she and her then-boyfriend/now-husband moved to Austin.  Lindsey is a total rock star in the non-profit world when it comes to fundraising and her latest project is with Conspire Theatre.  Conspire Theatre works with incarcerated and marginalized women in Travis County (Austin, TX area) to provide healing and empowerment through theatre and writing.  The company's next big project is to offer classes to women in the maximum security unit at Travis County Correctional Complex.  How awesome is that!?

Conspire Theatre is helping change lives through creative mediums but they need your help to keep it going.  If you're interested in donating a few items (pencils, notebooks, ink cartridges, etc.), click here to see what Conspire currently needs.  And if you'd like to be a "co-conspirator" and make a donation to help get the classes started, click here to learn more about the program and how you can help.  They're about thisclose to the goal of $3,000 by September 1.  Plus, if you do decide to make a donation, it's tax deductible!
