June = Nutcracker Awareness Month

BY Led Black (@Led_Black)

Just wanted to thank everybody for supporting and showing love to this project. I think we have created some real buzz in the streets of Washington Heights and beyond. The fact that our good friends at East Willy B made history yesterday by raising 50K in 50 Days is an encouraging and hopeful sign.

Okay folks, so Nutcracker Inc in tandem with the good folks at Le Chéile (839 West 181st Street) have deemed June, Nutcracker Awareness Month. For the entire month of June, Le Chéile will be selling Nutcrackers with a portion of the proceeds going to the making of this film. And get this; Saturday, June 30th will be Nutcracker Awareness Day at Le Chéile, which will be a veritable Nutcracker festival. Stay tuned for much more on this incredible event.

By the way, last week we got some awesome news; the NY Daily News covered the project. I think my mom bought every copy in the entire neighborhood. I could just imagine her telling her friends and neighbors, “mi hijo esta en el periodico” (my son is in the newspaper). Check out the awesome story by Michael Feeney: The modern-day moonshine of upper Manhattan
