Support Upstream Arts as we gear up for Give to the Max Day!
Dear Friend, 
We're thrilled to hear this story from one of our educator partners: 
Because our students had shared the creative experience of Upstream Arts classes together, students from my Special Education class and students from the general education classes are building friendships. Previously these students had mainly been in separate spheres with little interaction. Now they are not only enjoying each others artistic talent during Upstream Arts class, but they are also playing together during recess. 
This story underscores the power of one of our greatest beliefs: 
Art brings us together in shared creative experiences, and play gives us a chance to practice being in community with one another.  
As Give to the Max Day approaches on November 14, we're honoring the joyful community of these students by raising $8,000 to bring an additional program to schools this spring. 
That's what it takes to bring high quality arts programming to one classroom for 12 weeks. And you can be part of this creative wave by investing in Upstream Arts between now and November 14. 
All contributions made between November 1 through 14 are eligible for Give to the Max prizes, increasing your impact. Spread the word! Invest today and then post one of these "I support Upstream Arts" images on your social media. Together, we are building a more inclusive world.

Our students have more success during Upstream Arts as they are able to use crative and different ways to communicate and express themselves." "Nov 1-14, 2019 Support Upstream Arts. Give to the Max."
With abundant thanks for all that you do,
Julie, Matt, Bree, and everyone at Upstream Arts
P.S. You can still RSVP for the free info session with Allay Care Services on end-of-life and after-death care. 

Wednesday, November 20 from 6:00-7:30pm at the Upstream Arts Office.

With compassion and a healthy blend of reverence and irreverence, Allay will discuss death and dying and the challenges surrounding that time. Ranging from informational presentations, small group discussion and individual reflection time, you'll leave with practical tools for engaging with the conversations that need to happen.
