Dear ETD Supporter,
Do you receive countless letters and requests at the end of the year from non-profits asking for financial support? Do you often wonder what exactly your funds are being used to accomplish?
Let me tell you what a donation to Erasing the Distance helps achieve by introducing you to David, a Vietnam veteran who shared his story with us this year.
David experienced tremendous losses while serving our country, and though his physical body healed, the invisible wounds of PTSD remained with him for years. David’s powerful story of recovery was featured as part of our world premiere production Veterans’ Voices, and we were thrilled when we heard he wanted to attend a performance.
However, we were completely surprised when David arrived at the show with a busload of 25 family members.
During the post-show discussion, David’s daughter stood up and thanked us for “telling the stories that our father has never told us but we have always wanted to hear.” They had longed to know their father better for years, but always felt unexplainable barriers.
By donating to Erasing the Distance, you help us give voice to these stories. You help us use the power of theatre to bring people together, bridge understanding, and break the silence around issues close to the heart. You help us spark vital healing that allows lives to be forever changed.
Please consider a donation to Erasing the Distance this holiday season. Help us bring more stories like David’s to the stage and help more families like his heal. Thank you!
