Show Us US - Theater Rentals

Show us (US) is an organization aimed at African American youth, helping them to see people who are like them (African American) in positions that they may not normally see them at.  Currently we are trying to raise money in order to rent out theaters to have children see Black Panther and A Wrinkle in TIme.  We are trying to have these screenings in March and April.

 All money from this gofundme will go to renting out theaters, as well as any extra money will go towards popcorn and drinks for the kids.

Kids are selected randomly from the sign in sheet on showusus.com/childinfo. If you know any children who would like to take advantage of this offer please send them to our website above.
