i’m thrilled to announce that we have joined the #AWBgrantee family with our Awesome Without Borders grant, in collaboration with @theharnischfoundation!
the $1,000 grant will help provide funding for some exciting things this year at the shelter home in kolkata. we’ll purchase an amplifier to use with ukuleles that have electronics and a kala u-bass guitar that was given to us. we’ll also purchase new outfits for any upcoming performances.
it is an honor to be chosen for this grant, and i’m so thankful to be part of awesome without borders!!
