We have launched our crowdfunding campaign for the A-Place-To-Call-Home Project, which uses the arts to connect with the story and humanity of homeless people. It was a great success and you can see some of the photos HERE. Everyone was engaged and the crowd was a mix of the entire community, including some of our dear friends without homes. We all had quite a wonderful time, and we are deeply grateful to The Golden Era who were gracious hosts, from the owners to the bartenders!!
Our community forums, like our launch, are already accomplishing our goal of shifting perceptions. When our homeless friend, Trena, a Harvard graduate and MBA from UC Davis, got up to speak you could hear a pin drop in a busy and noisy lounge. One attendee said he woke up to a new reality among homeless people, when he heard Trena speak. Our Indiegogo Crowdfunding campaign, Humans Being Positively Human, will create a ripple effect of this perception change.
Now we have some work to do, and we hope you will help us.
Here are two ways you can help:

All contributions to the A-Place-To-Call-Home Project are received with the deepest gratitude. With your help, we know we can shift perceptions and co-create a community who works together toward collaborative and compassionate solutions!
I’m reaching out to my friends and connections, especially those who are social media experts, to help us spread the word about the A-Place-To-Call-Home Project and our Humans Being Positively Human Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign to fund the project.
A-Place-To-Call-Home is a collaborative, multi-media project with the purpose of inspiring inclusion and common humanity with homeless people, and promoting compassionate action by the community at large. Through Story, communicated through the Arts, we believe cultural transformation will happen.
We have been partially funded by a California Humanities For All Quick Grant, and will hear from California Arts Council at the end of June about whether we are recipients of their Arts and Media Grant. Even with these grants, we need additional funding for the documentary film, music CD, 2018 Daily Compassionate Action Calendar, and multi-media live event and gallery art show in November, 2017.
What am I asking of you? As a social media expert, you know the power of spreading the word throughout the various platforms where you have presence. We are using Thunderclap.it to increase our social reach, and we’d love your support by contributing your “Social Currency”. If you are not familiar with Thunderclap.it, here is a link to a blog describing how it works.
Our first Thunderclap is scheduled for the morning of Wednesday, June 14th. We are in dire need of support, as we need a minimum of 100 Supporters by midnight, June 13th. Your help would be so appreciated, and I believe will drive more potential Contributors to our Indiegogo campaign.
Please consider contributing your “Social Currency” to this campaign.
Additionally, if you are able to contribute financially to the Humans Being Positively Human Indiegogo Campaign, or refer any connections who might resonate with the project and the cause to contribute, sponsor, or underwrite a portion of the A-Place-To-Call-Home Project, contact Susan Davis or Betty Louise at
Thank you for your consideration,
