Carlisle Tool Library Telethon 

produced by Valley Traction, spring 2020

budget: $10

Pandemic confusion, cooped-up energy, silliness, and our collective need to feel close to other people all collided in this experiment. The Telethon occurred near the date of our cancelled spring fundraiser, and we accidentally raised some money for the Tool Library in the process. We broadcasted online from various pod-households, invited several guests, and hung out online as we all tried to save the Tool Library from a big, bad hypothetical bank. Fortunately, a meteor crashed in and saved the day just in time. Complete with commercial breaks, smell-o-vision, and glamorous hosting, this event quickly became the season's hottest ticket.
