Thanks to everyone who helped us shatter our fundraising goal for #GivingTuesday! We are 37% of the way to our end of year goal of $10K, so if you haven't given to our nonprofit, @TheGirlsRising yet, please consider doing so! http://www.girlsrising.org/donate
It was gently brought to our attention that we did not have an "Any Amount" option on our Girls Rising donation page. We would like to welcome you all to #AnyAmountWednesday. For those of you who felt left out in the cold, here is your chance to donate less than $35 or more than $1,500! Go get 'em: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=PTDUSDTU5B85Y&source=url

Behind every woman, is another great woman cheering her on! We’re so grateful to @carniewilson for her support of Girls Rising this year.

Update from Kristen: On 10/1/18 I underwent an unexpected surgical procedure to repair herniated and ruptured discs in my cervical spine. The good news is I am moving slowly and steadily in the right direction and getting better everyday. Unfortunately, I have not been cleared to perform at this Friday night’s (sold out, btw) show at City Winery in NYC. That being said, the show will go on as scheduled. I just won’t be on stage and am waiting until Friday to see if I can make the trip into the city to view this once in a lifetime performance! I can tell you we’ve planned to have a few friends join us on stage, and when I say us I mean Antigone Rising - even if I’m not on stage I’m still there with my teammates in spirit. On a brighter note, I do plan to perform at our upcoming shows with Dar Williams at City Winery in DC on 11/2 and 11/3. We are putting finishing touches on our new EP that should be ready this winter. In early 2019 we will be doing a special Girls Rising outreach at LA LGBT Center with guest panelists Carnie Wilson and Melissa Etheridge (date and ticket information coming soon but early February is the plan), and of course we will be setting sail on The Melissa Etheridge Cruise with Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole, Joan Osborne, and many others from 3/31-4/7/19! Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes thus far and for continuing to support Antigone Rising and the work we are doing with our nonprofit, Girls Rising. It’s impossible to express my gratitude in words. Love, Kristen
