#GiveLocal757 is Almost Here!


Click on the picture above to join us for #GiveLocal757 on May 12!

 Tidewater Arts Outreach, an organization that provides arts outreach programs to those in isolating circumstances (nursing home residents, hospital patients, shelter residents, etc.), needs your help. These hour-long arts programs – ranging from musical presentations, oral history tutorials, dance performances, and visual arts workshops – can sometimes be the only interaction these residents will have with another human being aside from their caretakers during the week. The importance of this mission, especially in light of the current COVID-19 crisis cannot be overstated. Isolation is a threat now more than ever.

There is still hope. TAO has revamped our programming to comply with social distancing regulations while delivering creative arts engagement. You can see examples of our work during this challenging time in this WAVY-10 Story, this piece by Channel 13, and this article on NextAvenue.Org.

We ask you to mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 12, when TAO will be participating in a regional generosity day called #GiveLocal757, a 24-hour period of giving incentivized with prize money from the event’s sponsors. This year, TAO is aiming for the $757 “Happy Hour” Bonus Prize for most gifts between 4-6pm.

In the coming weeks, We’ll be sharing more with you about this mission and how you can support TAO during #GiveLocal757. For now, we ask that you RSVP to the Facebook Event if you would like to help us successfully reach our goal. https://www.facebook.com/events/213607803393254/

Thank you so much for your support of my endeavors with Tidewater Arts Outreach. Please feel free to send me any questions to tao@tidewaterartsoutreach.org.

Have a wonderful day!
