Hello family, friends, supporters, and followers. I have decided to run an indiegogo campaign for myself to help insure that I can put all the love and energy that I want to into this tiny home project. This is an edge for me. Heck, going for this dream is a huge edge for me! But with the continued encouragement of of all of you I know I can see this project through.

My dear friend Tara sent me this poem yesterday and it feels like a fitting one to share at the point:

knowing your power
is what creates
humility.
not knowing your power
is what creates
insecurity.
— ego, nayyirah waheed

I am SO humbled already by this project and all the lessons it is teaching me. As much as this project feels like me stepping into my power, literally and metaphorically building myself a solid foundation, it has also already humbled me time and again, showing me how much I need the support of each and every one of you. Truly, every little word of encouragement and shared enthusiasm helps to keep my own sails full, especially on those cold wet mornings, like yesterday, when I went out to my site to find my tarp had blown off and water had pooled in my now water sealed floor frame!

At my floor flipping party I looked around and was filled with gratitude, seeing how each person there had helped to make this first big moment possible: John, with his constant support, giving me building advice, acting as a sounding board, scooping me up in mornings for work and fun adventures, and allowing me to build on his land; Amy, for being a team mate in this whole project and sharing my commitment to this project and giving me moral support; David for lending me his car and his electric bike countless times and for showing up when I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough people, and for listening to my ideas and problem solving; Kim for his clever problem solving abilities and interest and support; Jim for so generously offering to film this whole journey; and Sarah for coming out and bringing her kids and showing me that I can inspire other’s through my actions!

Now I am asking for some monetary support to insure that I can make this home as beautiful as possible and stick to all my principles of using environmentally friendly materials. This home is just the seed of something much larger: It is part of a larger movement to live more simply and in harmony with the earth. And for me it is integrating all that I have learned and discovering my own artistic style and process as a builder so that I can then offer my skills to others and help them create their dream homes. Will you support me it realizing this dream to it’s fullest potential?

 And the link to go to the campaign and donate is http://igg.me/at/tinygogo

I want to thank all of our supporters for your contributions. As of this writing there are 106 of you. We have raised $5,809 on the campaign site and $3,315 donated directly to the theatre with potentially an additional $350 promised as a result of the campaign. That bring our potentcial total up to $9,474.

We are hoping to raise at least $10,000 +.

Any help you can give by telling your friends will be greatly appreciated. Shortly, our indiegogo campaign will come to an end, however our fundraising efforts will now. People can call in contributions to 212 724 0677 or mail checks to The Shadow Box Theatre,325 West end Ave, New York, NY 10023.

Though we are noticeably short of our stated goal of $27.000, in good faith, Earth & Me has gone into rehearsal. The opening date is April 17th at Hostos College in the Bronx. We have already booked 3,140 inner city school children booked to see the shows in all 4 boroughs. Our goal is 6 to 8,000 children.

Hopefully between additional fund-raising and ticket sales we will be able to end our season in the black and bring a wonderful show supported by many to our young audiences.

We hope to see many of you at a performance.

Know how deeply appreciative we are of your help. You literally will have inspire many children to care for our earth as well as making many children smile.

And know that the campaign has done more than just raise money. It has lifted the spirits of us in the theatre, reminding us why we do this work! Our Inter-generational joining of hands has made a small miracle happen.

Thank You!

Miwa Oseki Robbins, Sandra Robbins,  and the many children we serve

Creating "new" from old has been a preoccupation of mine for a long time, but turned into a full-time adventure in building and living in a tiny "reclaimed" house. Beginning in 2012, I will live in this 120 square foot space for the length of my PhD studies in Literature and the Environment, and perhaps beyond. In this way, I hope to live a little smaller, leave a little lighter, and learn in what ways formal study can be acted in the every day.
