2017 Tejas Storytelling Festival

 

10-4-10 TEJAS STORYTELLING ASSOCIATION
ACCESSIBLE WEBSITE FUND

 

Dear Tejas Storytelling Association and Friends of TSA,

We are looking for 70 dedicated and techno-savvy folks to step forward and pledge $10 a month for 10 months (January, 2017 to October, 2017) to help get the new TSA Accessible Website up and running. Can you be one of those 70 folks? That is about 25% of our current membership. Of course, we will welcome more! But, at this moment, 70 pledges of $100 over the next 10 months will get us to our goal of having an accessible website up and running for all to see. (Your pledge may be paid in one payment if you choose.)

Accessibility on websites is not automatic. For people with visual, auditory and physical issues, it can be quite challenging to access information about TSA from our present website. And, accessibility does not come cheap. However, after careful consideration and research, we have come to a decision about the folks who can accomplish this for us. Now, all we need are the funds.

And why is accessibility so important? Think about this. TSA prides itself on the fact that we have always provided American Sign Language (ASL) signers to assist those who cannot hear to still fully enjoy our festival events. This is not true of our present website, but that can be fixed by the building and launching of an accessible website. And, that is our final aim in this fund raising effort.

So, will you not please consider becoming a TSA Techie? Support our efforts. Pledge 10-4-10!

In return for your support, we pledge to each of you who donate to this fundraiser a fully accessible business card ad on our new website for the first two years that it is up and running. Think of it: a business card-sized ad that runs for 24 months at a cost of $100. That is only $50 a year. Now, that is a bargain. Plus, you get a tax write-off and the joy of knowing that you have contributed to such a worthy cause.

This is the season for giving. Please consider us as a recipient of your giving!

All the blessings of the Season,
The Officers and Board of TSA​
