RAW Storytelling is a free admission, live, monthly show where storytellers recount - from memory - a real moment in their lives that affected who they are.
Since the debut show in October 2017, the event has been a complete success gathering more audience members than we could imagine and providing the stage for jaw-dropping true stories. However, we want these stories to be heard outside of the venue on show night. We've heard from people literally across the globe who want to hear these RAW stories and thanks to generous donators, within 10 days of launching our initial GoFundMe campaign in March 2018, we raised $350 to get RAW Storytelling its own podcast and fully-functioning website. YAY!!
So where does that leave us now? While we're hard at work creating these two platforms [the podcast and the website], we encourage our fans to keep donating and spreading the word. The $350 we've received will keep the podcast and website alive for the 1st year. But we have plans, big plans for the future. And we need your continuous help.
Even if it's $1 or $5, every cent goes toward growing RAW so that it can touch more people.
More about RAW:
Founded in 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL - RAW Storytelling provides any person from any background with the opportunity to share life experiences - and gather inspiration from those who share - through the tradition of true storytelling.
Unfiltered and uncensored, each storyteller explores the human experience, from the taboo to the most common of moments, in a judgment-free space dedicated to bringing humanity together through acceptance and understanding one unscripted life story at a time.
Due to the values and mission fueling RAW Storytelling, show admission will always be free of cost. Although we ask for donations at the show, they are simply not enough to grow year after year. With your donations, we can make magic happen.
Your support would mean more to us than you could ever imagine! RAW Storytelling is a community-driven project and exists thanks to the generosity of people who believe in the mission. Our wonderful venue [Café Collective] is donated, the photography [by Dogs of Fun] you see on our Instagram and Facebook pages is donated, our audio recording and amazing DJ services are donated [DJ Zondoz], and even the free beers we offer attendees are donated! Your aid in helping spread these stories of hope, love, learning, and laughter outside of our small community is a debt that cannot be repaid.
Thank you from the bottom of our RAW hearts!
