YOU did it! You helped us reach our Kickstarter goal of $50,000 in less than 29 days and at the same time, you astounded us with the incredible energy you poured into sharing the campaign with your friends and family. For this, we are so grateful.
We have 24 hours of the campaign left and in that time, we want to hit $60k. As incredible an opportunity as these funding platforms provide, they also comes with fees and expenses so we're pushing full steam ahead to make sure that we can reach a true $50k.
Over the last 29 days, more than anything else, your words of support have inspired us to keep going because the call to get this film out and working is loud and clear. In fact, here are a couple of the many moving comments we have received from supporters:
"I'm just letting you know. I am going to do everything in my power to make sure this documentary receives the full funding that it needs. I can't contribute much monetarily, but I'm spreading it down my various networks like wildfire. If I had $10,000 it'd be yours in a heartbeat. I don't, but I have access to a lot of people who would love to support a cause like this.
If you weren't doing this, we would stay invisible forever [...] People need to know that sex trafficking victims are real and that the cycle has to be stopped so much sooner than the places we're currently intervening at. Anything done afterwards is just trying to alleviate the permanent damage that this industry does to people for the rest of our lives. It has to be stopped before it ever gets that far because its effects never, ever go away."

Hi, Libby, Thank you so much for what you're doing to get this tragic story to the public's attention. I work in law enforcement and know this awful story firsthand. Thank you again and keep up the good fight!
As you know, we need to raise a total of $200K before this film can be distributed so starting this Thursday, June 21, we're continuing our fundraising campaign to raise the remaining $150K we need to our Support page: http://campaign13.org/support/
Thank you again for sticking with us. It's hard to articulate just how determined and energized we are because of you so we'll just have to show you.
Libby + the Nest Foundation
