The Stay At Home Show Raises Over $30,000 for The AFC
A few issues back, inspired by the latest stay-at-home order by the provincial government, we launched a virtual non-show event called The Stay At Home Show. We thought it would be a fun way to solicit small donations ($10) for The AFC (The Actors’ Fund of Canada), which provides financial support for members of the entertainment industry who are having a difficult time making ends meet. The need is greater than ever during the pandemic, as almost all work has dried up. Many Meanwhile readers participated and bought a ticket to The Stay At Home Show, which was simply an old-fashioned paper theatre ticket that can be used as a memento of these usual times. More than $30,000 was raised. Donations came from as far away as Germany. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
It’s not too late to buy a ticket to The Stay At Home Show.
