Happy Birthday Maria!

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I serve on the board of directors for Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) in Washington, D.C. CHAW provides amazing arts education (visual arts, dance, music) for children (and adults, too) and is committed to providing a safe space where children from different racial, socio-economic, and geographic backgrounds can learn and PLAY together! I feel lucky to have been a student of the arts throughout my childhood, and I believe that it had a huge impact on who I am today. 

What I love most about CHAW is that in our nearly 50 year history, we have never turned away a child for inability to pay. I know many of you understand the expenses involved in enrolling a child in a class or sending them to summer camp. Imagine the challenges for families who are homeless or live paycheck to paycheck. 

In honor of my birthday this year, I am hoping to raise $1000 for this incredible organization. Since my birthday is 4-1-81, it would be really cool if each of you would consider making a donation of $41.81. If 24 people participate, we would reach the $1K goal! However, any amount is appreciated and goes straight to tuition assistance. I would be ever so grateful if you would consider making a donation for this worthy cause, one that is near and dear to my heart. Your generosity will allow us to reach more children through the arts.  

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.

With gratitude and love,
