Buy a Book - Make a Difference!

I recently created my own version of a public service announcement for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic in the guise of a poem/book entitled:

"Six Feet Apart,Together"

- A tale of social distancing in the age of a pandemic

Proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to support local Arts communities who are suffering from the Covid-19 outbreak and are in need of financial assistance.

The books are available both directly through "Roll Up The Rug", and on "Amazon Books".

     Purchasing the book through "Roll Up The Rug" provides significantly more revenue to the fundraising drive than going through Amazon, so we would love for you to buy here through us.  

     Unless otherwise requested and agreed upon by Ari, the book(s) will be available at Om Culture during their regular 2nd & 4th Friday or 1st & 3rd Sunday dances.

*Don't forget, if you're jonesin' for a good story, you can always watch the YouTube video of Ari reading "Six Feet Apart, Together!" -- See link below

TESTIMONIAL:  "An Exceptionally Impressive Creation":

          "I found your "Six Feet Apart, Together" poem a most refreshing, innovating, entertaining and purely delightful experience, one worthy for consideration of a Nobel Prize in Literature. Your command of language, directed at an audience, for a specific purpose, is what impressed me the most. I can not fathom a more difficult way to get a message across than using poetry, especially one of that length. The way you created, then presented it was masterful. Your articulation was captivating and highly entertaining. Very impressive creation and performance. The world needs more like you."

TESTIMONIAL "Fun & Inspiring":

       “Who knew it was even possible to have such a brilliantly composed poem that flows so easily and is such a joy to listen to, yet at the same time delivers a hugely important message to kids about safety practices during Covid-19 times. Whimsical and lighthearted, this poem/book will appeal to kids of all ages, helping them to feel they also have a role to play in staying safe.”

In the spirit of this being a "fun" fundraising campaign with a little something for everyone, we have created 10 categories of donations with "thank you" gifts for each.  But please donate at whatever level you can afford, even if it's not in one of the categories listed below.  

The important thing here is not the gifts (which are just small light-hearted tokens of appreciation used in the spirit of making it fun), but, rather, your generosity in supporting our community.
