WE DID IT!
Together we reached and passed our Keep Restless Dancing target of $50,000 in donations!
We are completely blown away by the amazing generosity of all our supporters. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. It is awesome and humbling to be made aware through this of just how important Restless is to so many people. There have been many lovely and touching comments people have made as they donated.
We have received $56,522 to date but wait, there is more, South Australian philanthropists James Darling and Lesley Forwood have pledged an additional $25,000 to our campaign. James and Lesley have been long term supporters of Restless, they know what an astonishing and significant company we are. We are extremely grateful for their generous support of our company. So that means we have raised $81,522!
We have until 5 pm 30th May 2021 to reach for the stars and make this up to $100,000. The Federal Government through Creative Partnerships Australia Plus 1 program will still donate $50,000 on top of whatever we raise. We have the potential to raise $150,000 to support our dancers to continue to make great art!
This result is already astonishing; it would be truly extraordinary if we were able to raise twice our original target.
Thank you all once again for your support.
