$75,000 for the cause with a little help from our friends

To Our Many Supporters:

As you may know, the City of Portland has generously supported CAN with significant annual investments and they are scheduled to invest $75,000 more on December 31st, if CAN meets our goals for the Fall and Winter of 2011.

To earn this critically important investment, CAN has accomplished some amazing things in the last five months. We have recruited more than 4,500 new supporters to the cause, engaged 63 volunteers, conducted outreach at nearly 80 events and inspired 60 arts and culture organizations to join the movement as members. All while putting the finishing touches on a ground-breaking new public fund for the arts that, when approved by Portland voters in 2012, will restore arts and music in our classrooms, increase support for the arts orgs and artists that keep Portland creative and offer meaningful opportunities to experience arts, culture and creativity city-wide.

But we are not done. The City has asked that we reach 1,500 Facebook fans and 2,500 Twitter followers by New Years.

Please help. We will never meet these goals without you.

Step 1:   Please Like us on Facebook (http://www.Facebook.com/theArtsCAN) and Follow us on Twitter (http://Twitter.com/theArtsCAN).

Step 2:  Please ask everyone you know to do the same. 

Step 3:  Please consider donating an incentive for our #CreativelyPDX Campaign. From December 8th through the 19th, CAN will be giving away free tickets and other prizes daily in a contest for Fans and Followers that retweet or share at least one post. Look for more from us soon on how you can join the conversation #CreativelyPDX.

Huge thanks for all that you do to make art happen here. For more info or to run a piece on #CreativelyPDX on your blog, website or newsletter, I can be reached at 503.781.8538 or jessica@theartscan.org.

In the meantime, I look forward to sharing our progress as we make new friends and keep the old…
