With December’s theme of “Be Outrageously Generous” complete, I am thrilled to announce that together, we raised $1,500 for Urban Ventures’ music program and recording studio. This is a significant amount of money for the music program and also raised awareness of a charity making a difference in a community that Prince held dear. We couldn’t give details due to the anonymity Prince desired, but I can tell you that the recording studio at Urban Ventures is designed by the same person who designed the studios at Paisley Park, and that Prince was in support of Urban Ventures. That we continue to support that program’s good work is something we can be proud of as Prince fans. (You can still donate at www.urbanventures.org/Prince).
On Christmas Eve, I appeared on The Jason Show to spread the news about the fundraiser. What a special and generous person host Jason Matheson is!
As we close the books on the old year and welcome in 2020, I want to say thank you. The year 2019 was really great and it’s because of you — those of you who read posts, commented and welcomed me into your life — that I was able to keep writing and made it to the finish line! I am eternally grateful for you. As someone who dreamed about being a writer since I was a little girl, I want to say: Thank you. Thank you for being part of The Year of Living Like Prince.
