Thank You and Congratulations, Cory O’Brien!

Thanks to everyone who joined us on October 7th. We were overjoyed by your company, and as always, appreciate those who brought and shared their stories. Thanks for your courage and humor and insight. It’s what we come together for.

As we experience successes, like the completion of our Kickstarter campaign, (which remains open until 10pm tonight, with unique rewards like season passes for next year), and like having over 100 of you with us in the room last night, it is important to keep clear sight of the reasons this love and support is coming our way.

It is easy to be dazzled or wowed by appreciation and successes, but our responsibility remains one of holding a space that lets people come to share and listen to truths being told. Popularity will wax and wane, but our priority is to remain true to our mission. Even and especially as the size of our audiences grow and we become more involved in producing events, it is very important to us to continue to offer a monthly space that is affordable, inclusive, warm, and allows for things honest and bold and tender and true, in the midst of life that is not always that way.

Thank you all for coming out. If you are a repeat Here’s the Storian, thank you for playing and sharing. And if you have newly discovered us, we hope you’ll come back! It is super cheesy but true, we are Here for you.

Thanks for being here for us.

And special thanks to Cory O’Brien who has graciously accepted the invite to come back next month and feature with us. You told a great tale, and we are excited to see you on November 4th.

With love and gratitude,
Janna and Dan

Stats on Journey Costs, shirts sold, and Donations Given

Thank you so much for your generosity! There were a lot of organizers who went above and beyond this year to make the night what it was. We have a vision for where this could go, and we hope to really go all out next year. Help us make it happen via our Kickstarter!

Renegade is Going Awesome!

Have you rsvpd?

So we sold a ton of T-shirts, posters, prints, made some great contacts, picked up a free Square card, and racked up 100+ new invites to RAJEN. And most of all, we listened to some fantastic stories.

One of my favorites came from a little girl, who when asked, “Who is your least favorite teacher?”

Responded, “I don’t think I could ever have something like that.”

Her dad said, “She likes school a lot.”

There were a lot of cute looks, faces, and friendly waves. We met KickStarter Backers, old friends, and made new ones. But that moment in particular stuck out.

It was near the end of the night, but I think it’s because Chicago’s Renegade Craft Fair, even after only one day, had taught us so much.
