Alan Alda Video / Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day!
I hope you are enjoying today with your families and loved ones.
Thanks to you all, we're 47% funded. Now, we've got 12 days left to
make this documentary a reality. With everyone's continued support, we
can reach our goal by June 30th.
There are over 3,400 likes on our Kickstarter page (way more than many
successful Kickstarter campaigns). That's awesome! But, we must turn
those "likes" into dollars.
To all who read this email: would you please send a message to all of
your friends (forward this one, if you'd like), sorority or fraternity
members, co-workers, family members, newspapers, blogs, social
networks, etc. and ask that they back this project for at least one
dollar? We're so close!
Well, that's not my full update. Please, take a look at a quick clip
from the Alan Alda interview.
Mr. Alda is a proud father and grandfather, and he speaks candidly to
the importance of a father's devotion to family and community.
I've got plenty more to share with you this week. Enjoy your day (and forward this message)!
