To more magic in 2023. Become a monthly sustainer today!

  Brooke Anderson Photography   Beloved community, As we close out this year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for supporting BoomShake’s work.  Because of your continued support, we have been able to foster continued moments of healing, grieving, joy, resistance, rhythm, and magic through gatherings, workshops, school programs, and supporting those on the front lines. We are looking forward to another year of carrying on Aunty Monica’s legacy by bringing rhythm and culture to our movements and communities!  As always, we are a shoestring operation, and we depend on our community to sustain this work. Please sign up as a monthly sustainer or make a one-time donation to help us keep growing and building in 2023! Community donations (no amount is too small!) make a huge difference in sustaining our work.  With love, BoomShake
