THE STORY BUS INDIVIDUAL PATRON


Dear valued supporter,

We are excited to share with you the mission and impact of The Story Bus, a mobile video, audio, art, and photography studio that visits nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and neighborhoods in Baltimore and beyond to collect personal stories and oral histories from residents and community advocates.

The stories we collect speak to both the concerns and solutions of underserved, disenfranchised, and underrepresented youth and artists in the area. We believe in the importance of fostering Arts and Culture in our youth and we want the archives and creative artifacts produced from The Story Bus to heal, unite, evoke action, and inspire all people, not just those residing in underserved communities.

Through multimedia applications, the stories collected on The Story Bus will serve as educational content that would be used to curate virtual events, special face to face art exhibitions, and live storytelling events for the public.

We are reaching out to ask for your support in our mission to bring the voices of underserved communities to the forefront.

Your donation will be tax deductible and will help us to continue our work. We have several donation levels and benefits available, including:

  • $50 donation: A thank you letter from our team, recognition on our website and social media, and a special shoutout in our next virtual event.
  • $100 donation: All of the above, plus a special invite to an exclusive virtual storytelling event featuring stories collected on The Story Bus.
  • $250 donation: All of the above, plus a limited edition print of an artwork created by a youth artist featured in our story collection.
  • $500 donation: All of the above, plus a private virtual tour of our mobile studio and an opportunity to meet the team behind The Story Bus.
  • $1000 donation: All of the above, plus a special acknowledgement in any exhibitions or events featuring stories collected on The Story Bus.

We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to bring the voices of underserved communities to the forefront through our work on The Story Bus.

 

Sincerely,

Darrin Keith Bastfield
