We're not finished yet!
We would like to take a minute to sincerely thank everyone who has donated to "Beyond Tahrir!" It has been exciting for us to see so many people get on board with the project.
As most of you know, we spent one week in Egypt last year in February after the beginning of the Revolution. We spent time with some pretty extraordinary artists, activists, actors, musicians, all who had helped to orchestrate the unfolding revolution that followed. Hany Adel, Amr Wakd, and Khaled Yussuf are a few of these people.
Now, with elections looming in Egypt at the End of May and a date set for June 3 to swear in a new President and for Mubarak's verdict to be delivered that same day, it will be a very symbolic and emotional time for the people of Egypt and the world. If we can meet our goal, we will be planning to return for these events, but follow them through the eyes of these artists, as they write new Songs of Freedom, as they rally and protest in the Streets, and as they walk into the Voting Booth.
We have 3 days left to go, and we're almost halfway there. That's not much time, we realize. We also realize that raising funds for even the most worthy of projects can be incredibly difficult, especially in these strange times. We would like to take this time first of all to Thank YOU the donors, and co-creators, so far we have had 123 people rise to the occasion to help us see this project come to life.
Although it may seem unlikely, we're going to try to do everything we can in the next 2 days to double what we've raised. If we can do that, we will be close enough to our goal that we can rally to the finish line.
If you know anyone who can match your donation, whether that means talking to a friend, or sharing this project with a relative, or simply donating again, we believe we can still reach our goal even with only a few days to spare!
On this holiday weekend, for many of us, we will undoubtedly be with family and friends. Please have a blessed weekend with loved ones wherever you may be, enjoy your time together.
On behalf of Alif Lam Mim and Endless Eye we're very humbled by your response to our project and let's see if we can give it one last shot! We have until Monday!
Peace + Respect
