DONATE NOW & SUPPORT YOUR TWSS™ COMMUNITY
that's what she saID™ sf APPROACHES its TWO-year anniversary!
This fundraising campaign was originally launched on GoFundMe.com on January 26, 2018.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TWSS!
TWSS celebrates its one-year anniversary on February 5, 2018
That's What She Said™ (TWSS™) is turning one!
Just a year ago, a few of us got together to experiment in creating a space for women to share their unique journeys with each other.
We believed that the potential impact on our community was awesome, even though we'd never seen anyone try anything like it before.
We also knew we didn't want to "recreate the wheel" by becoming an advocacy group (we live in the Bay Area after all, and the organizations already doing that "real" work are right here!)
We decided to raise funds and awareness for the organizations already doing that amazing work by inviting women "speakers" to share their stories at That's What She Said™ on the first Monday of every month...and then by giving each speaker the freedom to highlight a cause or group close to her heart that TWSS™ would promote and accept donations for.
A year later, and with the help of people like you, TWSS™ SF has donated more than $3,000 to 10 local non profit charity organizations!
Since its inception, That's What She Said™ has been funded by its founding team and profits from sales at The Social Study.
Furthermore, TWSS™ has always been free-of-charge for attendees, as we've wanted to ensure all women have access to this special community.
As TWSS™ celebrates its first birthday, we are finally turning to you to ask for your financial support.
With your financial support, we'll be able to work towards our goal of growing the That's What She Said™ community.
We envision TWSS™ in other cities in the U.S. and around the world, providing spaces where women can share their stories safely, consistently, and joyfully--just like TWSS™ SF.
Our birthday wish-list has two big items on it:
1) A stage! Every month, we rent a stage and sound equipment to ensure that the speaker can be seen and heard. This costs us $200/month, plus time and human resources to make sure someone is available to receive the delivery. We're growing up, and we need our own stage for the long haul!
2) A short documentary film! This could tell the TWSS™ story in a really impactful way--and serve as a powerful to take TWSS™ to the next level as we endeavor growth. From pre-production and filming to post-, this project will cost between $1,500 - $2,000.
We are beyond grateful that you are part of the TWSS™ family, and thank you for your support. We are committed to elevating the stories of the amazing women in our community and beyond for as long as we can.
We're just getting started!!!
