A Huge Thank You to Our Big Give S.A. Donors


Dear Friends of Gemini Ink

A huge thank you from everyone at Gemini Ink for your gift to us during Big Give SA 2016.

Aside from the unfortunate technical difficulties, Big Give SA for us was a wonderful day of readings and sharing. We are so thankful that you were there for us when we needed you.

The dollars you gave will go to support the over 60 readings and other fabulous literary events Gemini Ink puts on in San Antonio free of charge ever year. Your donations will also support the Writers in Communities (WIC) program. WIC works at over 25 sites across San Antonio, bringing free creative writing workshops to 1,125 San Antonio citizens in the last year alone—from inner city school children to low-income seniors. WIC workshops change lives and allow voices to be heard that might otherwise be overlooked while building literary skills and using literature to seed lifelong literacy.

It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a village to create and share a lasting story. We’re happy you are our village. Thank you for all you do to support Gemini Ink—this year and every year.

One last bit of big news: we just learned that our youth programs in WIC are finalists for the National Youth Arts and Humanities Program Award for 2016, given by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. We are so grateful for this honor—and please know that none of this would be possible without all of you—and so once more, with feeling, thank you.

Best wishes,

Sheila and Viktoria
