Let’s Hear It For The Dads!

June 19, 2015

This Father’s Day weekend we are celebrating some of our favorite LTYM Dads. At DC’s 2013 show, Adrian Kulp stole our hearts as he shared how he became an unexpected full time stay-at-home father. “I cuddle during thunderstorms and can really knock a manicure and clear coat out of the park.” “We never even realized how much my father gave of himself to mother us,” Shosh Kohn reveals in a beautiful tribute to her father at LTYM: Wilmington. We are so moved by LTYM: Twin Cities co-director Vikki Reich’s words about her stepfather this week in the Star Tribune, What My Stepfather Taught Me About Family. And we will never forget Phaedra Jarret’s powerful essay about not having a mom, but having a Richard.

LTYM 2015 Raises over $30,000 For Local NonProfit Causes!!

May 28, 2015

A vital component to Listen To Your Mother’s mission is our support of women and families in need. Each local team selects a non-profit to partner with during the season, building awareness for the cause to both our real life and online audiences, and donating a portion of our ticket proceeds as well as fund-raising for that cause day of show. In addition to funds raised, many cities include cause representatives as part of their show–with some cities bringing cause reps with them for media opportunities, and others offering causes a call to action from the podium. LTYM is elated that our 39 shows raised over $30,000 this season, that will go directly to our local causes in 2015: LTYM, as a project, has now raised over $80,000 to date for causes that support women and families. We thank our audiences for helping LTYM 2015 Give Motherhood a Microphone (and so much more), […]
