The Writer's Garret received an award notice for $750 from the Texas Commission on the Arts for a pilot program that (unfortunately) requires morefunding in order to launch. "LifeLines" pairs aging seniors with their grandchildren,who will help record the story of their lives.Since last Thursday, we have raised $1,280 (along with the $750 award)--so we'realmost there. We have until THIS Thursday. Will you help?Immigrant grandparents will have a chance to share their life's journeys, perhapsin translation. Seniors struggling with Alzheimer's will find their memories reorderedand recorded to reach generations to come. Families, severed by long-standing emotionalrifts, will have a personal, creative reason to pull close together again. Participantsmay share their stories and pictures on-line through The Garret website--inspiringus all.The full $3,000 will pay instructors and cover supplies, program coordination, andproject overhead (e.g., background checks, insurance, etc.)We welcome all support to help make "LifeLines" a reality.
