Consider this today.
Black Friday has passed.
Cyber Monday is over.
And that leaves the most important “shopping” day of the year . . . Giving Tuesday.
You’ve gotten gifts for people you know, and maybe even yourself. (I’m a big believer in rewarding yourself with a gift when you hit a deadline or reach a goal. Finish that draft? Buy yourself something!)
So today is a great day to give something to someone you don’t know. Because anonymous gifting is one of the most powerful ways to put positive energy into the world.
Here are a few organizations or ways I recommend you support others today:
- The Actors Fund
- Broadway Advocacy Coalition
- With a special shout out to the Cody Renard Richard scholarship
- Broadway Bridges
Or if you want to support individual Artrepreneurs, you can do what I do and play Kickstarter Roulette.
That’s when you go on to Kickstarter, click on the theater section, and close your eyes and click something. And give them something. Anonymously. Fun and supportive.
And lastly, if you’ve enjoyed any of the content that I’ve put out on this blog or on social media, I hope you’ll consider giving something to The Dr. Kenny Encouragement Fund.
I started this non-profit charity in my Dad’s name, as a way to honor how much he encouraged me to pursue the theater no matter what. (Not something you’d expect from an Indian Doctor dad – even I was surprised!)
The Fund has already given away thousands of dollars to individual TheaterMakers and other organizations who support TheaterMakers. And this year, I’m committed to doing even more.
I hope you’ll help. Click here to donate. No amount is too big. 😉
But wherever you give today, do give. Anything. For two reasons:
- It’ll make you feel good.
- It’ll come back to you. Because positive energy always rebounds.

So much has changed in our industry . . ….
I get it. No one likes to select a seat…
