February 2021 Tell Us Something Newsletter

February. It’s a month that, in Missoula, I always look forward to. To me, February feels like the midway point of winter. February is also the month in which my favorite non-Tell Us Something event takes place: the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. An entire week of storytelling on film. The BSDFF is where I met some of my first friends when I moved to Missoula back in 2003 through the joy of volunteering. It’s also a week that always seems to have some warm days, some sunshine, and some blue skies. Maybe I am misremembering. That’s how it feels, anyway.
This February looks much different, of course. Yes, the BSDFF is still happening — responsibly and virtually. Hopefully, we will again see some of those harbingers of spring too: clear blue skies and golden sunshine all along the way.
This time last year, Tell Us Something was awash in gratitude from the support we received at our first major fundraiser. (You can pick up a recording of that here if you like. Release and Attack produced this mix right here in Missoula!) We were looking forward to a big year of celebrating our 10-year anniversary.
2020 brought many unexpected surprises. This month has me feeling reflective and grateful. Yes, grateful. 2020 brought many opportunities along with its challenges. And many new stories.
We won’t be hosting a big in-person fundraiser this year. Please do save the date for Missoula Gives, though, on May 6 and 7, 2021.
