December 12, 6:30pm: Holiday Party Join KCWIFT and your friends in the filmmaking community for our annual holiday party, at 6:30pm, Thursday, December 12th, at the Screenland Armour theatre, 408 Armour Road, North Kansas City, MO 64116.
No ugly sweaters required this year, though they can only add to the fun! Good food and good cheer will be served all night long--bring some cash for the bar and a penny or two for the holiday hat!
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do.
If you haven't got a ha'penny, well, someone will buy you a drink or two!
We'll celebrate the season and kick off our fundraising campaign for the KCWIFT documentary on Girls Leading Our World, Inc. (GLOW), a nonprofit that serves at-risk girls in Kansas City's urban core.
Come jingle and mingle and find out how you can help
raise matching funds for the documentary, which will also serve as a marketing tool to help sustain and expand GLOW's much-needed services.
Each week in Walt Disney's old stomping grounds,
on Kansas City's east side, GLOW meets to serve girls, ages 8-24. These girls face enormous challenges: poverty, homelessness, abuse, and lack of access to accredited schools. But this film is not about what’s wrong in these girls’ lives.
It's about what's right within each girl.
Founded by two caring women who used their own savings to launch the program, GLOW teaches girls that the challenges they face do not define who they are. GLOW’s mission is to give girls the tools they need to overcome obstacles and become positive, informed, caring and creative young women.
KCWIFT supports this mission and we invite you to join us!
You too can become part of GLOW’s network of caring adults.
this film is, in essence, a promise. We are promising to invest in future storytellers and we expect big returns on that investment!
Will you make that promise too?
During the production of the GLOW documentary, girls will learn how to use the arts to shape a world of their own making.
GLOW’S girls have a story to tell.
And our goal is to show them how to use their voices and harness the power of digital storytelling to gain agency in their own lives.
But we need your help!
We are not a production company with deep pockets. We are just a not-for-profit group of filmmakers promising to help GLOW’s girls develop their creative potential.
If you believe the arts have the power to change lives,
please join us in making a promise to the girls of GLOW. Walt Disney doesn’t have to be the only creative success to grow out of Kansas City’s east side. We believe GLOW's girls have the power to be anything they want to be.
This holiday season, help us make some hearts GLOW!
And show them you believe in them too. Donations can be made online or at any of our networking events and keep an eye out for our Indiegogo campaign as well.
Happy holidays to you and yours and thank you for your support!
