My dear friends, what an exciting ride it’s been this month. Look What She Did! is receiving a lot of love and we are grateful… and thrilled to know our work is resonating with an audience.
On the fundraising front, good friends Beth and Bill Busbice have generously offered a matching grant this week! They will match whatever we raise up to $1,500. So now is the time to give– your donation will be worth TWICE as much, really helping us cross the finish line. Here’s the link to our campaign, where you can watch all our latest videos and make a donation: http://lookwhatshedid.
This week we’re releasing a new video with filmmaker Tamar Halpern on Nellie Bly. That name– Nellie Bly– may be a little familiar to you, as it was to me, but do you know what crazy thing she did to become famous? Let Tamar tell you about this audacious young woman who put herself in harm’s way, becoming one of the first — and boldest– investigative journalists in America.
Thanks to all of you who have given already. We love those little notes of encouragement you’ve included. You’ve cheered us beyond our imaginings.
Warm wishes to each of you– and enjoy the interviews!
Nellie Bly went from being a penniless unemployed woman to a national superstar for her risk-taking investigative journalism. She’s even got her own board game. Growing up her nickname was Pinky… but once she adopted the moniker Nellie Bly she took the world by storm. She’s the idol and inspiration for writer/director Tamar Halpern who tells us about Nellie’s exploits.
