Hello Kickstarter friends. Just a quick update; we've started shooting Palms and thanks to you this production is well on its way to being completed in the next few weeks. Check out the pictures of our cast and crew at work. Thanks to you this is being made and captured in the way it was intended. Friends, family, and strangers have pitched in enormously with sharing their homes, time, energy, facilities and most of all love.
We have been blessed with a very talented cast and professional crew. Keep us in your prayers and continue to spread the word about Palms, because every child deserves a forever family.
My dear friends and family, we met our minimum goal of $2000 dollars here on Kickstarter. I am so humbled by your gifts and sacrifices you have shared with me on this project. We have already acquired our main lead actors, Director of Photography, various crew positions and some equipment. Others have given their time and resources to also make this project a reality. We are still short of our ultimate goal of $20,000 but I believe those resources are also on their way. We just had to make a showing that we are serious about the issue of foster care in our country and were willing to come together as one voice.
Production begins in May and I am prayerful that our giving will be fully utilized. To make this film a standard when it comes to a child’s journey in hopes to find a forever family. I am fully committed to this work and appreciate all of you more than you know. I hope that someday, somewhere, a child will walk up to you, join the palm of their hand with yours and say to you "thank you".
Thank you for joining Palms with me.
Wow, what an incredible response by friends, families, and perfect strangers connecting to a perfect mission. We are well on our way of raising our initial goal of $2000. Please don’t stop telling others. "The more we raise the more THEY rise", by this, I mean foster children whose voices may be unheard.
We live in a privileged society. As tough as times may be for us, none could be more disheartening than for a child to not be able to spend a Christmas with the same family year after year. Lets continue our efforts and make a child's Christmas wish come true and stay true.
By the way, we raised $1515.00 by last Thursday evening. Our private investor is matching our funds by check into our hands. Thank you everyone who responded as you did and we will continue to seek other sources in achieving our ultimate goal of $20,000.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU....
Whoo-hooo, we are up to 41% of our fund raising goal. Thanks to our wonderful backers who are all experiencing wonderful feelings right about now, our goal is within reach. In just one week, the message about this project is reaching across the country. We have calls for supporting cast coming up in two weeks and our lead actors are excited to be part of this film of the heart. And thanks to you we are getting in a greater position to help others be inspired to open up their hearts and their homes to a child.
Thank you Kickstarter family and all who are continuing to support us.
The more we raise the more we rise.
