Thanks to record-breaking community support, we had our most successful Missoula Gives ever! The generosity of 100 donors raised $5,505 for Tell Us Something during Missoula Gives 2020.
These funds will help offset some of the losses we incurred as a result of canceling 6 of our in-person events so far this year. Already we have hosted one free week-long intensive storytelling workshop and we are starting another one today. We hosted our first-ever live-streamed event for free and it was attended by 800 people from Montana, California, Ohio, New York, Florida and Virginia. It has since been viewed over 1,200 times! Check it out here if you missed it!
The arts are especially vulnerable right now. Not being able to gather in person and earn revenue from live events is challenging. Getting people to pay for things online when they are used to getting content for free is a different beast. Yet the arts remain a vital part of what makes Missoula a great place to live, and I am so grateful to the Tell Us Something community for everything you do to keep the arts community alive and well in Missoula and beyond.
I look forward to bringing you more of the raw, funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming stories that you have come to love at the Tell Us Something. For now, that will happen via streaming events. I look forward to when we can all safely gather together again.
Until then, we will see you online.
Thank you again for your generosity!
