  5. The nonprofits that are represented in at least three photos will be entered in a prize drawing for $100! 
  6. Want to help promote #GivingTuesday through social media? Tweet your photo @GivingTues and @ACTionAlexVA with #unselfie. We'll be tweeting out your photos as well! 
  7. Questions? Please contact: Kerrin Epstein at kerrin.epstein@actforalexandria.org or 703-739-7778.

My mom started Arts on the Horizon, a theatre company with arts education programs and shows designed for children ages 0-6 when I was 4 years old.  I want to help her continue to bring theatre to little kids all over VA, DC and MD!
