TNH is always honored and thrilled to feature other organizations up to amazing ventures. This one stands on its own. We received a letter from a TNH follower and supporter, Nate Lombardi, who is asking for our support and awareness. I think all of us can relate to feeling alone, and this movement surely aims to create support, love, and a solution for all those who experience bullying. Feel free to share and to support!
Dear The Sisters of The New Hollywood!
Nate Lombardi from The Groovy Projects here! I am so thrilled and inspired by you and Brianna for using your influence to make the world a better place. It is one thing to use goodwill for publicity through your agent, and completely another thing to seek out opportunities to enrich and enlighten your peers, fans and future generations.
The Groovy Projects is a character development/anti-bullying organization that creates artistic and life-changing experiences with entertainment professionals. Through community building and soul-searching activities such as music videos, short movies, writing lyrics, theatrical games, photography, drawing, beat-boxing and body percussion, we allow students to discover that they are each special, and have the power to make everyone around them feel "Two Inches Taller." By involving students in these interactive programs during their formative years, the goal is to give students perspective on what type of person they want to become in the future.
We are very proud of all the things we’ve accomplished so far, but it’s clear to see that we have a long journey ahead of us at the Groovy Projects to become an institution to bring the change we hope to the children nationwide. Students need to be given the tools to stay emotionally healthy at a young age! We are trying to to build their immune systems before it's too late. Putting a band aide on a broken soul when they are in the middle of adolescence is too late!
We have a great start and a lot of allies in the industry in New York City. Jennifer Maloney-Prezioso is a Tony and Emmy Award winning Producer is my partner. Our friends on Broadway have been incredible. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=175586712643961&set=vb.135501356652497&&theater But we need your help and support! Your TV reach is so vast and powerful!
The Groovy Projects range from one-time assemblies to a whole year program resulting in an empowering Groovy Celebration where we premiere their music videos, movies, art work, raps, photos and poems.
Here is a teaser of us working with elementary schools:
Here's our the photo shoot with the City Council at the Museum of Tolerance in February! We could organize one with your women and allies as well. The students are so influenced by people they see on the TV and in movies.
Really hope to meet each and every one of you so I can thank you individually for all that you do!
An Excited Nate Lombardi!
