In this week’s episode Handicap This Productions travels to Boston! Adriana Mallozzi single-handedly raised the funds to bring our crew to bean-town. She set up an IndieGoGo campaign and got the word out in a myriad of ways. We had conference calls, exchanged emails, and did whatever we could to make this happen. As we continue to travel the country our story gets more and more exposure and more and more people want to bring us to their group!Â The fundraising process started back in June. We were able to raise enough money for two performances.Â The Brookline Teen Center provided the space for our show, we made an appearance at an Easter Seals event at the NERD center, and we took a tour of Fenway Park!
This episode has a little bit of everything. As always it has disability awareness, inclusion, and diversity, but it also has some Boston specific themes. The mission of Handicap This is to open minds, break down barriers, and lift attitudes up. We do this by educating, empowering, and entertaining with our shows and our speeches. This episode is all about what is possible when you have a goal, are committed to that goal, and never give up!
Will Denis be able to take care of an irritant? Will they experience any van obstacles? What will happen at Fenway Park? Will the team encounter another fire? Will Bachmann Industries go up in smoke? Why is a tree blocking a handicap parking spot? All this and MORE in this week’s episode of the lost footage.
