Dear Friends and Supporters of CreaTV San Jose,
I want to thank those of you who came out to *The Creative Awards on January 8. What an incredible inaugural awards event, with more than 350 people in attendance!
For those of you who couldn't attend, we want to make you aware of our unprecedented announcement that will have a positive impact on schools throughout San Jose.
CreaTV San Jose will purchase $500,000 worth of digital media equipment and software for K-12 schools in San Jose.
While CreaTV San Jose has the capital-restricted funds to do this, we do not have the unrestricted funds needed to hire an Education Services Coordinator, who will help manage the program and be the bridge between our media center and the schools.
Please help us build that bridge by making a donation to CreaTV San Jose.

Our goal this year is to see CreaTV San Jose's Pre-K-12 Classrooms Channel 28 and community media center become a thriving resource for San Jose schools.
With your help, Classrooms Channel 28 can showcase student work, professional development videos for teachers, school plays, sports, special events and much more. And, teachers use digital media as a teaching tool with students in the classroom, whether it's for a history, math or video class.
We believe that access to digital media equipment and training is vital to our democracy and our youth, who need to be equipped with 21st Century skills to become part of the competitive, well-rounded workforce.
Please "Pay it Forward" and help us to help our students.
Thanks for your consideration... and Happy New Year!
Suzanne St John-Crane
