Trainings, Volunteers and House Parties, oh my

Training #2: May 11th, 7 PM


Despite the three-judge panel issuing their Coleman v Franken ruling the night of our first training, it went well.  We’re doing it again!  Monday, May 11th, 7 PM CDT.  We’ll walk you through camerawork, editing and — this week’s special topic — storytelling.  All levels welcome. 

 

Please RSVP jennifer.whigham@theuptake.org with your name, contact info, interest (camera, editing, storytelling or some combo thereof), and your experience level (novice, medium, advanced.)  Trainings will be the second Monday of each month at our HQ in downtown St. Paul: 411 Main St, Suite 307.  Call 651-224-2479 if the doors are locked when you arrive for the training.


Volunteer Opportunities


- We still need people to help us cover the legislature.  You can do this from home!  Here’s the info.


- Not interested in Minnesota, but still want to help?  The White House now offers live streams throughout the day: http://www.whitehouse.gov/live/.  Take a look each day, and let us know if you find something you think we should put on our front page.  Drop us a line at info@theuptake.org.


- Calling all programming geeks!  We need some PHP help.  Check out this post in our tech group.


House Party!


Our first house party fundraiser!  Hosted by Sue & Greg Skog, and Coleen & Ross Rowley.  The party’s on May 16th from 4-8 PM.  All are welcome.  Contribute what you can, and stick around for live music and food & drinks.  Kids welcome.  RSVP with Jennifer at jennifer.whigham@theuptake.org, or on the Facebook invite.  Hope to see you there.  (The party’s at 1591 Mallard Drive in Eagan, MN.)


Oh, and in case you were wondering: we’ve raised nearly $10,000 of our $16,000 goal.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  We’ve had so many kind donations that I haven’t been able to thank you all personally via e-mail.  (I will.  No worries!)  We — no, really — couldn’t do this without you.  (Our donation wish list is here.)
