Boulder’s Cause! EFAA!

by Joelle on January 21, 2015

We are thrilled to announce that, for the second year in a row, 10% of Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show ticket sales will benefit our local Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)!

For 97 years EFAA has helped families, seniors and people with disabilities whose immediate needs for food, housing and other basic necessities cannot adequately be met by other means, and supports their efforts toward financial stability and self-sufficiency.

Client Quotes:

 “I knew we needed help, but I had no idea your generous support would completely change our lives forever. EFAA case managers and volunteers gave me their kindness and exceptional support to move forward into the future. Without all you have done for us, I would not be where I am today.”

“EFAA’s compassionate staff and groceries from the food bank helped us get through a desperate time. My hope for the future is buoyed by the knowledge that EFAA continues to offer a steadfast safety net for those in need. Until you walk through EFAA’s door with an empty stomach, you cannot know the importance of their work.” 

“I have been able to raise a healthier, smarter daughter due to food and help with lights. So she was able to do better in school and hopefully be more successful. It has enabled me to create a stable home.”

Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show is Back!

November 22, 2014

Pam and I are so excited to announce that we are bringing the Listen To Your Mother Show back to Boulder for the 3rd time! What started as one show in Madison, WI in 2010 has become a phenomenon. This year we are so proud to announce that Listen to Your Mother: Boulder will be one of 39 shows nationwide! Check our National Site’s Announcement Post Here! Our shows in 2013 and 2014 really brought our community together as local writers stood on stage and bared their souls with heart-wrenching, heart-warming and hilarious stories about motherhood. In 2014 we even persevered through pregnancy and a late Spring snowstorm that threatened our ability to wear our strappy sandals. But we did it.
