Our Girls Need Your Help!
Girl Be Heard is a non profit theatre company (EIN: 27-1848709) that brings global issues affecting girls center stage. We perform at the United Nations throughout the year to advocate for women and girls locally and globally.
10k is needed to bring this full length production of 9mm American, about gun violence, to the main stage. Tickets at girlbeard.org
30k is needed to bring our stop the violence show and educational curriculum into community centers and public schools where gun violence is a daily threat.
“fearless, political theatre” --Huffington Post
“can’t miss” production" --Ebony Magazine
What We Need & What You Get
If we are unable to raise $10K, the production, staff, and all-girl cast will suffer. To simply open 9mm America, we need to cover the below costs.
- Cast and Crew Stipends $7000
- Rent (writing workshops & rehearsals) $3000
Our perks are fantastic. USB drives, singing thank yous, headshots, tickets to shows. Every donor is invited to our July 4 party (the very last day of this campaign) where we will celebrate in true Americana style.
Other Ways You Can Help
- Go to girlbeheard.org to audition or book a show.
- Like us on Facebook and let a girl be heard.
- Follow us on Twitter to join our movement to stop gun violence.
- Come to the show! Tickets at: http://planetconnections.org/9mm-america
- If you cannot donate, please share this with others. Together, we can stage the revolution to end to gun violence.
The show would have cost over $100k without the love and support of our cast, crew and village of volunteers.
