dangivingtuesdayDear Friend:

At some point along your way, something in you connected with the promise of Tia Chucha’s. Perhaps your heart, like mine, dreamed of deep change and connection. Perhaps you felt the spark of hope that the arts bring. Perhaps you knew that shared yearnings take attention and support.

Tia Chucha’s has moved me to the core since its beginning. This year the struggle for this dream has grown more urgent and beautiful. I have cried often when hearing women reveal the pain and power of their stories through poetry and prose.  I have felt the pride of parents as they watch their children learn guitar or son jarocho, knowing they are witnessing the seeding of their creative lives. I have seen the light of presence, in young and old, that comes from being cheered for the courage to share truths on the mic. I have been inspired by the growth of new circles, connections and friendships that take root at Tia Chucha’s, connections that continue well beyond an event, a class, or a conversation.

To witness what can happen at Tia Chucha’s is a blessing. We hope you have taken full advantage of the connective place that is Tia Chucha’s. The choices are many: To learn an instrument, sing, write, perform. To reclaim ancestral knowledge, language and dance. To be exposed to new ideas and ways of being. To become aware of your authentic self and celebrate your destiny and challenges.

Thank you for maintaining your contact with Tia Chucha’s. As we move forward in offering new ways to engage in the arts, culture and literacy, we have learned that the biggest gift we offer is options: To discover new ways to see oneself and others. To appreciate the abundance we all carry. To spark our immense capacity to grow and build healthy relationships.

The creative spirit that fires up Tia Chucha’s needs your help to stay strong and steady.

As we approach the end of 2015,  our goal is to raise $5000 to support current and new music, writing and literacy programs that wake people up to their creative selves.

Will you help us reach our goal? These are hard financial times. Together we can keep this dream that is Tia Chucha’s alive. Please help us continue to improve the lives of our community through the arts.

Your donations, in any amount you can offer, will make a world of difference.


Thank you for your support!
