From the Beyond-Tucson website:
“The tragic shooting events of January 8, 2011 shook our Tucson community, affecting each of us deeply. It was a horrible day.
But in the days and months afterward, our community came together in a way it never had before. We supported each other, leaned on each other, and generally looked out for one another. The sense of togetherness was tangible.
BEYOND is a community-wide event to commemorate the anniversary of January 8th, celebrate the spirit of togetherness we felt in the days and months afterward, and re-commit ourselves to working together to build a stronger community every day.”
This is an invitation to you folks to have a part in Beyond-Tucson and Sewing Spots Together… to bring attention our conservation initiatives. After all, this is about more than just saving a big beautiful cat.
We are currently in a mad rush of creativity as we have just been invited to be a visual and media highlight of the Beyond events taking place in and around Tucson this January 7th. And, with your addition we can make it big enough to generate environmental curiosity and excitement in our community. Our goal for Beyond is to make the jaguar long enough to eclipse the “A” on A-mountain on January 7th!
Beyond is a way of honoring friends and loved ones injured and lost on January 8th, acknowledging how the events of that day have changed us, celebrating our community, and committing to building a better future together. I, for one, would like to work with you to create a future together that has room for the jaguar and all native life.
Please see and share this informational PDF which explains more fully what “Sewing Spots Together” is, how it will be part of Beyond on January 7th, and exactly what you can do to join us and make it a big environmentally-attention-getting success! It’s free and fun. Also, please find Sewing Spots Together on Facebook!
Together, piece-by-piece, stitch-by-stitch we can sew spots together.
