Mission Statement

FRESH OFF THE BOAT and KIM'S CONVENIENCE were breakthroughs for Asians on prime time TV. Now, the casts of both shows are uniting for one night only — to read their historic pilot episodes live, to raise support for Asian American / Asian Canadian arts during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

The Story

WE MADE IT! Thank you so much for supporting Asian artists!

There are still 20 days left in this campaign, which we are extending through the end of this month. 

We are shaken and horrified by the ongoing violence against Black people by police and a society that has been shaped by white supremacy.

As Asians, we believe we have the responsibility to stand up and stand with the Black community in the fight to end state violence and structural racism; that we can't stand by as Black people are victimized. As artists, we know we have the privilege of telling stories and raising our voices.

We want to use this moment to work alongside our Black friends, family, colleagues and fellows to help change a system that must change. In solidarity with the Black community, we have extended this crowdfund through June 30 and ALL further proceeds from this and the Canadian fundraiser are going to be used as a matching challenge for the new #AsianArtists4BlackLives campaign here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/aa4bl.

We'll be adding additional incentives to keep donating — so please continue to give toward this critical cause.

(This is the US currency version of the campaign! Looking for the Canadian dollar version? Go here!: https://www.seedandspark.com/fund/kimsofftheboat#story)

WATCH THE EVENT RIGHT HERE! The livestream will be embedded on this page — or you can watch on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/seedandspark/ or YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/SeedandSpark!


One night only — TOMORROW, MAY 30, 6pm PT / 9pm ET to 8pm PT / 11pm PT — the casts of two of your favorite shows are joining forces to read the pilot episodes of their shows, live online!

Here's your chance to relive TV history, and to help out hard-hit APA/AC nonprofits!

Also: give ANY amount, and you'll receive an invitation to join in on a live Q&A with both casts together after the second read is complete!

Thank you so much for your generosity in this time of challenge!
