Support Gabby Smashes Web Series!

My name is Luann Algoso and I'm the Creator of the web series, Gabby Antonio Smashes the Imperialist, White Supremacist, Capitalist Patriarchy! Today is the one-year anniversary of when this project succeeded in meeting its goal of raising about $13,000 to cover the costs of production! Thanks to all of our amazing backers, we were able to create the pilot episode of the show that you see online today. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into that pilot and we're so proud of what we've created and the opportunities it's provided our team in sharing the show to more audiences.

We're now in the pre-production stage of filming the rest of the season and we need your help! 

Between Dawn and I (director and co-executive producer) we have been fortunate to travel to different cities to share Gabby Smashes through local screenings and film festivals, but the cost of travel and labor often comes out of our pockets. And as we move into the writing and editing stage of new episodes, funding for that labor of our writing team also isn't covered. 

So today, on the anniversary of us achieving our goal of raising funds through our Seed&Spark campaign, AND on my birthday, I'm asking for your help to raise $1000 to support this women of color-led project! 

Your donation would help cover: 
- Film festival submissions
- Travel
- Labor of our writing team 
- Marketing/promotions

Having funds to cover the labor of promoting this project and the writing process supports the ongoing needs of our expanding team. Dawn and I especially have put in countless hours of work during this time in between production and often the labor of producing, marketing, promotions, traveling for speaking engagements and so on, can go unrecognized and is tiresome but absolutely worth it if we want to reach more audiences and supporters!

I'm hoping to raise at least $1000 today. Any amount you can contribute would be most helpful! 


Gabby Antonio Smashes the Imperialist, White Supremacist, Capitalist Patriarchy!
 is a comedy web series about the trials and tribulation of a young woman of color who struggles to do good in the whitest city in America–Portland, Oregon. She wants to change the world, but it’s not quite happening – yet. It’s funny, non-preachy, and sparks important conversations about racism, cultural appropriation, gentrification, and all the ups and down of nonprofit life.
