Amy Donohue is raising funds to film the documentary “Social Media Stole My Kidney!”. She writes:
I am making a documentary about my kidney donation. In May 2013, I will be driving cross-country to meet other organ donors who I met through Social Media. I have an amazingly talented friend, James Pietragallo, who is going with me to film, direct & edit it. He’s made independent films for years and is extremely talented and easy to work with.
In case you didn’t know, on April 19, 2011, I donated my kidney to a friend’s mom. We have an incredible story to share, but many other donors do as well.
I am doing this to raise awareness about live organ donation. When people see this film, they will see how normal a donor’s life is. More education = less fear = more lives saved!
I put together a comedy show of the BEST comedians in the Valley. I have been in this scene for ten years and can truly attest to the talent that will be performing this weekend. I am humbled to call them friends and even more humbled that I barely had to ask them to do this.
You will NEVER see lineups like this. Ever. These are all top-notch people with a couple of selected up-and-coming comedians as well.
Speakeasy Comedy Lounge is a great room for local comedy. They serve Mexican food and there’s a full bar there as well. They are donating the room to me for the weekend to hold this fundraiser.
There will be deals on rooms in case you choose to have a staycation night. (More on that as the date gets closer.)
I will also be selling T-shirts.
There are 4 shows this weekend:
Friday January 18th at 8 & 10pm
Saturday January 19th at 8 & 10pm
$10 to get in.
Here is the Facebook page for the documentary:
