Battle Of The Slams - 180807 Syd Grand When Worlds Collide 039

Battle Of The Slams

This month, compete against 27 other cities to win the grand prize!

We know you love The Moth. But did you know that as a nonprofit organization, The Moth relies on donations from supporters like you to bring our special brand of storytelling into communities like yours? 

This month, all 28 SLAM cities will battle it out to see which city can raise the most per capita to support The Moth. The winning city will receive a documentary short film about its SLAM scene! 

Each city has two weeks to raise as much money as they can (see below for schedule.) If you’re in the audience at a SLAM during the donation period, you can donate in person. But you can’t make it, you can still make your gift to help your community win the Battle by clicking the donation link under your city below. Any donation - even just $1 or $5 will help! And, in thanks your donation, we’ll enter you into a raffle to win a full year’s worth of free tickets with reserved seats for any local SLAM you attend!

Help your city win the Battle of the SLAMs by making your donation today. We’ll announce the winning city on November 18th—and don’t forget to share the donation link with friends, family, and on social media to help your city come out on top!

Look up your city below to find out when it's your turn to donate!
