Pinched / pinch hit


Dear Mo`olelo Friends: 


We’ve been thinking about the word pinch.

To squeeze

To constrict


It seems many of us are in a pinch this year. We’ve heard from audiences who can no longer afford tickets to a show, corporations that have cut arts education funding, and actors, artists and friends who are out of work.


But a pinch can also be an expression of love or happiness.

We pinch ourselves to make sure we’re not dreaming when we receive good news.

We pinch the cheeks of an adorable child.

And a pinch hitter saves the day.


Mo`olelo stepped up to the plate in 2009 by stretching resources to make our productions and education programs of Good Boys and 9 Parts of Desire accessible to our community.


Now we turn to those who are in a position to do so to pinch hit for Mo`olelo.


Our goal is to raise $20,000 more in 2009 to cover remaining annual expenses and position Mo`olelo for a strong start in 2010. As of December 14, we’ve raised $18,395. Only $1,605 left to raise. A contribution of any size will help us reach our goal.
