After the smash-success of the 2010 premier Listen To Your Mother show in Madison, and the undeniable groundswell of enthusiasm from the online viewing audience, bloggers began asking for LTYM shows in their communities.
Now “National Director,” Ann Imig hand-picked some of the brightest and most talented women in the online space to spearhead their own local LTYM shows in five cities across the country in celebration of Mother’s Day 2011: Austin, Los Angeles, Madison, NW Indiana, and Spokane.
In a huge boon, BlogHer–the premier destination for women online–signed on as LTYM’s 2011 National Media Sponsor.
As a team and in accordance with LTYM’s mission, the directors/producers agreed to donate 10% of their ticket proceeds: 5% went to a national cause–V-Day’s City of Joy--and 5% went to a local non-profit cause of their choosing. Altogether, LTYM raised $1400 for their 2011 causes.
WATCH THE SHOWS:
Every single reading from all five cities–69 in total–were recorded and are shared with a global audience on LTYM’s youtube channel.
