LTYM 2012, WE DID IT! 10 Cities. 140 Readers. $6000 Donated.

by Ann on May 28, 2012

Looking at these cast photos–all laid out together in this collage–finally allows my brain to process the enormity of what LTYM accomplished this 2012 Mother’s Day season. Through our national live-reading series, LTYM unified our communities in celebration of Mother’s Day, serving as an ambassador for bearing witness, expanding perspectives, giving voice, and sharing joy, tears and riotous laughter in an epic celebration of the beauty, the beast, and the barely-rested of motherhood.

Not only did we give Mother’s Day a microphone with local LTYM shows in Austin, Chicago, DC, Northwest Arkansas, Northwest Indiana, Madison, NYC, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Spokane…

Not only did we–the majority of us novice directors, producers, and cast members– in individual cities and as a collective fund and deliver a nationwide live-performance series…

Not only did we create a platform for over 140 readers to voice their version of motherhood…

but also, together as a national project we raised $6000 for local non-profit causes benefiting women and families in need!!

Thank you once again to those who made it possible for LTYM 2012 to fulfill our mission so successfully: Our dedicated and tireless local directors and producers, brave and talented casts, business development guru Deb Rox, designer extraordinaire Sarah Fite (who created LTYM’s iconic logo, created this website and all of our publicity materials) our generous local and national sponsors, and you–ourĀ  in-person and virtual audiences.

Our 2012 cities are still busy gathering photos and thoughts from their shows. Visit each individual site by clicking under “local shows” on the navbar. This summer we begin rolling out videos from all 140 readers in all 10 shows (adding to the 69 videos from 2011), so that our LTYM live shows can reach a global audience. Stay tuned for updates!!
