The world's greatest detectives are on the case… and they're looking for your help!
The promo video above is for the upcoming Great Human Race (if you watch closely -- and quickly -- you can spot me playing the unfortunate Professor Plum.)
The Great Human Race is an annual event here in Durham, organized to allow local non-profit groups to raise some money. This year's Race is Saturday March 27. More about The Great Human Race
Once again, I'm "participating"* to benefit my theater company, Manbites Dog
and our Great Human Race partner, Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern
. Together we're known as Team PigDog, and we are unstoppable. We raise money by participating* in the race and getting folks to sponsor us. Anybody want to sponsor me?
Last year, thanks to support from friends including several LJers, I raised over $500; and the total raised by ALL participants for Manbites and Little Green Pig was over $10,000. We'd love to beat that this year. Like many arts organizations, Manbites Dog does great work with abysmally low funding, so you can be sure every dollar donated truly goes a long way.
There are two ways you can make a tax-deductible sponsorship donation:
-- Go to my personal Great Human Race donation page
, and make a secure online donation with a credit card.
-- Mail a check to me. (if you need my mailing address, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org). Checks should be made out to "Volunteer Center/Great Human Race". I need to have it (or know it's on the way) NO LATER than Saturday March 20.
Here's information about Manbites Dog at the Great Human Race
, including links (at the bottom) to photos from several different years. (You'll have to click around to find a snap of yours truly.)
Thanks for your support!(* "Participate" = me being there representing. I will NOT be doing the 5k fun walk, and running in the 5k race is right out.)
