That’s what the Steel Yard gift envelope says. And Tom and I are believers. So we had these choices to pick from:

– I want to support a Steel Yard work day at $344.

– I’m going to support a session of Open Studios at $129.

– I’m thrilled to sponsor __ hours of the Steel Yard’s operations at $43 each = $____.

– I’ll commit to paying for __ days at $1,036 = $____.

– I’m SO darn committed that I want to take care of a WHOLE WEEK at $7,252.

– I’m committed enough to make a monthly gift of $___ over the next ___ months.

Pretty darn spiffy choices, I think. What do you offer me, your true believer?
