    Dear Friends and Faithful Supporters,

     Wow. We are floored. You, our community, our ensemble, have helped us raise $7,733 during our Fund Dreamer Campaign! Incredible!

     With this money you have:

     1) Helped increase Three Legged Chair programming--making our classes and camps available to more students!

     2) Provided support for our Three Legged Chair foundational expenses so that we will be structured, protected, sustainable, and free to expand our reach!

     3) Established our scholarship fund so that we can offer amazing students, who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to participate, a spot in Make-A-Musical™ Summer Camp!

     Your support, sharing, encouragement, and donations have made a huge difference for Three Legged Chair. You have lifted our hearts, magnified our courage, and fired up our devotion to this work. So many more people know about us and what we do, thanks to you! We are so grateful! 

    This campaign has taught us a bunch. One of those things is what the students learn in camp--that reaching out to your ensemble--and then being supported by your ensemble--that's how we grow. 

     So, ensemble, these words are for you. 

    Our hearts grow bigger, open wider
    When we listen, help each other out
    To grow our seeds, find what we need so we can dig a little deeper
    To hold each other, hand in hand, so we can stand a little taller
    To take the steps to do our best, mistakes just make us better
    We know by now, that's how we grow
    We know by now, that's how we grow!

    ~from our original song, "That's How We Grow"
    Make-A-Musical Summer Camp 2014

     THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

    Love, Katie, Erin & Kiara

    Dear Friends and Faithful Supporters,

    Today is Monday. Our Fund Dreamer campaign ends this FRIDAY. We are pulling out ALL the stops for our final 5 days, and we hope you will too!

    We are so very thankful to all of you who have contributed to our campaign to help us grow. You have given us the gift of a supportive, dynamic, creative, vibrant and bright community, and it's beautiful to experience. Thank you!

    If you haven't seen this video, we wanted to make sure you did. Kiara talks about our writing process and a story about how, last summer, our littlest camper thought of the idea for our finale song: "How We Grow." Watch the video here.

     Our youngest camper said these words: "You know a seed is in your heart. And when you sing, it grows."

    Three Legged Chair was a seed in our three hearts. And once everyone started singing, the seed has grown. And it's STILL GROWING! For the next 5 days we can really make some magic. As we know from our camp, it's amazing what can be accomplished in a short period of time. Let's go for it!

     Here is something you can do TODAY or TOMORROW or EVERY day until FRIDAY!

    1. Share our posts on your page. The more views the better!

    2. Share our posts with someone you know who has a media presence, following, blog. We're talkin TV, Radio, YouTube, Podcasts, articles ANYTHING that will give us that final push!

    This growing seed means more and more children going through the world believing in the power of their UNIQUE VOICE, and knowing that with an ENSEMBLE, they can INNOVATE, CHANGE, and CREATE something new that wasn't there before.   

    Here's the finale song that all started with one voice, but grew to many voices.

    You know a seed is in your heart
    It's in your mind, your body, all of you
    It's in everyone, in everything, in every voice, in every start
    We forgot what we all need
    To have someone see us, take us in
    To spend the time to look into our eyes and see our seeds
    Our hearts grow bigger, open wider
    When we listen, help each other out
     
    To grow our seeds, find what we need so we can dig a little deeper
    To hold each other, hand in hand, so we can stand a little taller
    To take the steps to do our best, mistakes just make us better
    We know by now, that's how we grow

    Thank you for helping us grow our seed, so we can nurture the artist in more children's hearts.

    Love, 

    Katie, Erin & Kiara

    The Power of Ensemble.


    We wanted to update you on the FIRST WEEK Three Legged Chair's Fund Dreamer Campaign! You, our community, started us off with a BANG. We raised $1,580 in the first 7 days. Yippee! HUGE THANK YOU'S to all of you who have donated or shared our campaign with others.  We are DAZZLED by you! We have 36 days to go to raise the remaining $14,200. Still a long way to go, but little by little we know we can get there. 
     
    It's a bit risky and stretches the heart to stand up in front of your world and ask for some help. We know that this is a campaign to raise money, but to us, it's also an opportunity to raise awareness about what we do. Just as we teach our students to become an ensemble, we know that YOU are OUR ensemble; and your support has been instrumental to getting us where we are today. So in that light, we believe there are MANY ways to support one another, and this week here's how you can help:
     
    1. Forward this email to any of your contacts who would be interested in us!

    2. Put us in touch with anyone you know who is a reporter/journalist, or who has a blog, YouTube Channel, or other media platform to help us build press for our campaign/company.

    3. Interact with us on Facebook and Twitter--like, comment, favorite, retweet and share!
     
    And of course, you can always make a donation!
     
    You do A LOT to get the ripples rippling! That ripple effect LITERALLY means more and more children going through the world believing in the power of their UNIQUE VOICE, and knowing that with an ENSEMBLE, they can INNOVATE, CHANGE, andCREATE something new that wasn't there before.
     
    That's what we do. Through creating original musicals. And that's what YOU do by helping spread the word. 
     
    Three Legged Chair was just a little seed 5 years ago. But with hard work and YOUR support, our seed is growing!

    You know a seed is in your heart
    It's in your mind, your body, all of you
    It's in everyone, in everything, in every voice, in every start
    We forgot what we all need,
    To have someone see us, take us in,
    To spend the time to look into our eyes and see our seeds
    Our hearts grow bigger, open wider,
    When we listen, help each other out
    To grow our seeds, find what we need so we can dig a little deeper,
    To hold each other hand in hand so we can stand a little taller,
    To take the steps to do our best, mistakes just make us better
    We know by now that's how we grow.
