UNTOLD is a unique project that reaches the masses online – people searching for hope, inspiration and understanding to life’s most unique challenges. Every story we share we want to inspire, give hope and create change in a corner of the world. That inspiration compels us to do the awkward thing of asking you to give us money so we can keep doing it.
Truth be told, we can’t do this alone. From our exhibits to college campuses to the work/time/travel of gathering the emotional heartfelt stories, to the stage show productions, these are hard costs and we need your help to sponsor, donate or simply give a dollar or two toward the effort of the Untold Project. We know there are a million other places and groups to give, but we are asking if you would consider being our champion and help us with your funds. Whatever amount you decide, we’re thankful you are willing to make a difference. We hope you continue to be inspired by the stories of changed lives here at UNTOLD and look forward to inspiring change in the future. Thank you.
Our UNTOLD stories are not just the heart of the human spirit, it is the heart of who we are. From speaking at your events, to book signings, to the powerful emotion of the exhibit or the impact of stage shows coming in 2022, the UNTOLD Project is indeed a global storytelling movement that is changing lives. Our passion is exposing the remarkable stories of ordinary people– giving voice to life’s diverse experiences, challenges and vulnerabilities in a mission that unites us all. If you are interested in getting involved in our mission or speak with our founders regarding involvement in your community, we encourage you to contact us today.
And always remember, there is an UNTOLD story in us all…
