Whoops. Apparently it's good to provide update to our backers. But i just found out about this now. sorry.
So, we are almost there!!! We launch our Bee the Change Campaign on August 21 which is National Honey Bee awareness Day. I (Maryam) is going to New York City in a few days to attend a summit which the NRDC is hosting in our honor. Slow Food, Bioneers, Burt's Bees, Audubon Society and others are going to spend the day talking about how they can use the movie to advance their mission.
George is not going becuase of our budget constraints but he will Skype and partake remotely.
We are having a fundraiser on Friday in Venice and it's going to be a Bee Bash. It's going to be packed and i am going to bee wearing a very special outfit. we will take pics and post on Facebook.
Thank you all for supporting this film. We want to educate and raise awareness. It's a good film if i may say so myself and it's taken THREE years of our lives.
I didn't know how hard it is to make a documentary. Geez! But i am grateful to be an ambassador for the bees. They've initiated me and made me grow.
Thank you. Please spread the word so we can make our goal. It's all or nothing. Hive Mentality is the way to go!!!!!!
