Hello Frends! While we are still buzzing about our time at Red Rocks. The music was incredible. It was amazing to see Twiddle in such a setting. But, there are more Frankies that need to find their home. Wednesday night at 9:00 pm EST, from the WLF page, we will drop the remaining White Light Frankies. There are 100 available and we will be limiting the purchase to 1 per customer. If you were fortunate enough to bring the WL Frankie home from Red Rocks, we ask that you leave these to others. Now, there was a reason we held back 100 pins (other than to give you a chance to bring one home) – to support a very special charity. Frankenfoote (the art) is the creation of the Gilmour family. Shea, daughter and artist and David Gilmour (father and illustrator) and when we discussed creating a charity Frankie, we asked the Gilmours to nominate an organization. Continue reading!
Dear Frends, Being able to channel the music and message of Twiddle into charitable giving is an incredible honor. We are grateful for Twiddle’s support and could not have accomplished a fraction of what we have without them. In May we will celebrate three years of spreading the White Light. This past year has been an incredible one – continuing to exceed our expectations by every measure. To think that our community has donated over $1,000 a week to dozens of organizations is a testament to all of you.
During fiscal year 17-18 we made grants to 50 organizations important to our community. We have donated to crisis centers, food pantries, music education, animal rescues, sustainability organizations, advocacy organizations and so many others. Why do we support so many causes? Because you do.
Beyond the numbers, White Light Foundation produced our first benefit concert, engaged in partnerships with dozens of incredible artists and expanded our sponsor relationships. We have been fortunate to be supported by a passionate and generous team of volunteers who channel the music and message of an incredible band. We are starting 2018-2019 with big plans and ambitious goals. We will begin our year with Twiddle at Red Rocks raising money to help individuals with severe developmental disabilities and follow that up with some exciting event and product announcements leading up to our return to Tumble Down.
On behalf of the Board and volunteers, thank you for continuing to support our mission. Thank you for nominating organizations important to you, contributing to your community and helping us to grow our impact. But above all, thank you for spreading the White Light.
