I wouldn't normally ask for such a favor, but...
So my day job is as an arts administrator for a nonprofit arts group in Brainerd, MN - The Crossing Arts Alliance. We do amazing things in our community like work with inmates in the jail on art and writing, offer art instruction to at-risk teens, and raise money for the local soup kitchen in addition to putting on gorgeous exhibits and performances, and bringing fantastic literary programs to our town.
Like a lot of nonprofits, we struggle to remain afloat in these tough economic times. Now, I'm not asking you for money, but I am asking you for your clicking finger.
Grand Casino MN is having a giveaway today for which we are nominated. If we get the most "likes" we will get a check for $5,000 and that would be huge! (I could send more artists in to work with the kids! Or get new lighting for our gallery! Or maybe get an Art-o-mat! The possibilities...)
All you have to do is go to the Grand Casino facebook page and like the post about The Crossing Arts Alliance in their 'Season of Giving' post HERE. We have until 9pm, cst to gather the most likes, and I think we can do it with your help.
Will you help? Please? Think of the children...
