I write to you all from the very most sincere part of myself and I ask that you take the time to read the entirety of this note. I seek your help to continue with my future and the future of JUNTOS. I write to you because at one point or another, many of you’ve told me your admiration for my projects, company, or passion. Well friends, I ask you to help me and make your verbal support actualized. In order to see a future for JUNTOS, I need to gain at least the requested amount on our Kickstarter (our online fundraiser).
JUNTOS is not a passion, it’s not something I want to do. It’s something I need to do – JUNTOS is me. It’s where I can best offer something to the world; bringing people together is my passion and dance is my language. After directing this project for 4 years, I’ve had the honor of working with over 80 university dance students, more than 35 communities internationally, and thousands of individuals in audiences. We need your support to continue creating and building upon these relationships. Dance offers something unique, especially in this time where technology grants us communication yet severs our ability to interact as humans. Through dance we are united, sharing cultures and creating communities that will last lifetimes.
I love what I do so much, but at this point in time I cannot continue my work with JUNTOS if I do not gain at least the minimum requested amount on Kickstarter. I’ve given all I have, both energy and thousands of my own dollars to support the smiles, memories, and friendships built by JUNTOS, but I physically cannot do it anymore. It’s taken too much of a toll on my own needs and for this I ask for your support. If you do indeed mean what you say when you describe your admiration, please, please make a pledge. It’s so easy and if we don’t make our requested goal, you don’t need to pay anything. Even giving up a cup of coffee for a day can help – please, pledge what you can if you hope to see a future of this organization.
From the bottom of my heart,
