Read Play Love is inviting Patron Project Sponsors into our extended family – this is a new initiative to help us financially bridge the "non-profit covid gap" - while simultaneously moving forward, creating meaningful experiences to change the world and put RPL’s unique assortment of resources to excellent use.
I’ll be honest: covid-19 has hit Read Play Love hard, which is no surprise. But that’s NOT the end of the story! I’m determined to look at our current situation through the lens of our strengths, focus on all we have to offer, and reveal new ways that we might use our resources to activate Impact in a wider scope.
How It Works:By underwriting at least one month’s rent for the RPL Exploratory, a Patron Project Sponsor can select (or create) a special impact project engaging the children and families of Read Play Love. My vision is that I’ll be able to use my skills assist the Donor in identifying a project that is deeply in alignment with her own interests, goals, and purpose; a project that, when carried out, will become part of her personal legacy.
Read Play Love’s mission is to use creativity to empower the next generation and creative infinite ripples of change. As an organization, we are rather magical – I mean, we’ve got some stellar resources that make things happen….and I believe we can use who we are and what we do to actualize the dreams of trail-blazers and visionaries – like YOU - who want to make a difference in this world.
So, what is a Patron Project? Perhaps it’s something that you’ve always dreamt of doing … or maybe it’s something brand new! It’s something that is important to you and your story. It’s connected to your “It” – your own flavor of leaving your stamp in your lifetime.
Here are a few ideas to perhaps get your thoughts started. This is an open-ended list, and discussion and co-creation with Patron Project Sponsors will no doubt reveal things that I could have never thought of myself! Maybe your project might be something like…
A commissioned gallery of artwork by young artists, created on a particular theme or message of your choosing
A virtual class that you could develop or teach yourself (or ask someone else to teach) that would provide research or experience toward your own Impact-driven goals
A new original song commissioned by you, on a theme or message of your choice – to be captured in a filmed, music video, high-quality recording, or other performance
Kid-created illustrations for your book or other project
A challenge for the families at RPL that you designate and design: i.e., recycling, gardening, community service
The first ARTbundance Integrations with Read Play Love!
An art installation created of 100% recycled materials to establish the RPL Exploratory as a trash-free zone
Or a collaboration between RPL kids/families and any project you are working on….we’ve got motivated, brilliant homeschoolers who can do so, so much…write articles, brainstorm business concepts, write poems, tell stories, fold origami cranes, interview people or be interviewed, sing beautifully, make friendship bracelets, create worlds of Hope for the future….
What thought is popping in your head right now? Who knows? That might be your Project….
Sponsoring one month’s mortgage payment for the Exploratory is $2100, tax-deductible. (Note: If there are budget/requirements outside of RPL’s ready-resources, that will be the responsibility of the Project Sponsor, though it is likely for further donations to be processed through Read Play Love.)
If your heart is soul moved, and all you can hear is YES!, you can start your Patron Project Sponsorship now with a tax-deductible donation of $2100 to underwrite one month’s mortgage immediately. Just make your donation at the top of this page, and we’ll connect very soon for a heart-to-heart to explore the parameters of your project.
Or if you think you have an idea or a flicker-of-an-idea – my door is open for flickers, and I’d be happy to talk about possibilities.
I am so thankful for your support of Read Play Love, and for creativity in general. ~Marney
