Hello Families – let me first, thank all the families that have generously donated time, money and resources for our TEDx event! We are over $550.00 and even have one parent who is working with friends to supply the food for the event as well! We TRULY have the BEST group of parents anywhere! We need all monies in by Wednesday to prepare for Thursday. We DO have all materials to build the stage and sets so thank you for the offers there. Your monetary donations are going to pay for those materials as well as video editing and other fees we may incur in putting on this production. Please email me if you can help in any way – firstname.lastname@example.org
