Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I wanted to pause for a moment to tell you how moved I am by all of you who have given to ALIVE INSIDE. I understand the sacrifice and you are all heros in my book. I'm so grateful that the beauty of giving music to our 'lost' elders has resonated with you.
In our world, people often see aging as negative. I have been guilty of this myself, but in making this film I got to see beneath the surface of Alzheimer's and dementia. ALIVE INSIDE is really about the beauty and the life inside all of us- even those who have lost so much.
More than your generousity with our KickStarter campaign, the personal stories you've shared with us have been amazing. So many of you have been so strong and open hearted as you've dealt with your aging loved ones.
One of the people who reached out to us is a man named Dave Roth. Both of Dave's parent's have Alzheimer's disease. After seeing one of our early screenings in NYC, Dave flew home to Kansas to deliver personalized music to his mother. He then sent us this video... You HAVE to see it!!!
Even more, Dave is a pit musician on Broadway and has started an iPod drive on Broadway!
To help a helpless person is good, but to help them feel ALIVE INSIDE is an even deeper gift in my eyes. When we experience another's pleasure it changes how we think of them, and this is where the magic lies!
Thank you for all that you are doing.
