#GivingTuesdayNow 'We Can Make A Difference" Episode 2

May 05, 2020

For So Many of LNT's Star Volunteers - Like Susan Reid - #GivingTuesday Now is Not Too Different From Any Other Day
Because nearly Every Day is A Day of Giving - in one way or another!


On this Giving Tuesday Now, Lost Nation Theater gives thanks for all our helpers. Lost Nation Theater Volunteers make all the difference to LNT being able to make a difference!

And today - with her permission -  we are shining a spotlight on uber volunteer:
Susan Reid

Susan has been with LNT, since - well, I don't even know when!

She has fed us, clothed, us, played for us, wrote poetry with us, cleaned with us, mailed with us, created visual art for us, housed actors for us, crocheted for us, baked for us, run concessions for us, and made Spring Indoor Egg Hunts for wee ones possible with us. One of my first memories of Susan is her providing dinner when jazz great Lester Bowie came & played a show with us & MHS Masque- that was back in 1998 folks!

And now, she's become an LNT Patreon Page member to support us during this covid crisis.

She says: "I Love LNT!"

And when we asked if we could shine a spotlight on her, Susan said "That will be fine  - if it helps keep donations rolling in!"
Ya gotta love it! True to form - if it Helps somebody, she'll put up with the attention!!


Like so many of LNT's amazing volunteers, Susan helps so many groups. "Look for the helpers" said Mr. Rogers' mom.
We are lucky not to have to look very far.
