The Theatre Development Fund is a not-for-profit organisation that has been an essential part of of NYC theatre and dance for over 50 years. Through outreach, various discount ticket programs, organising performances for those with disabilities & so much more, they’ve helped break down the barriers to theatre attendance for nearly 2 million people each year. They also founded and operate the TKTS booths. In short, TDF is one of the main reasons Americans from across the country and tourists from around the world can attend and afford to see live theatre.Without any shows up and running, and without the funds raised from their annual gala which they were forced to cancel (and I was supposed to perform at), this organisation is in dire need of help. And NY theatre will be in dire need of their help when things get back up and running. So we have to support them now in any way we can.Animal Haven - Animal Haven is a nonprofit organization that finds homes for abandoned cats and dogs throughout the Tri-State area and provides behavior intervention when needed to improve chances of adoption. My husband and I have volunteered at this shelter. It’s a rare organization that truly cares, has beautiful facilities, helps to raise funds for animals who need costly medical care, and go out of their way to save & rehabilitate animals on ‘death row.’'--Please do tell your friends about the show! Share the show on Twitter - @dontcalluspodShare the show on Instagram - @dontcalluspod--Created and hosted by Christopher Bartlett-WalfordCo-Produced & Artwork by John-Webb CarterWith thanks to Jukedeck, Anchor & Zapsplat for Sounds.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dontcalluspod/message
