sharing, emailing, and, of course, donating what you can...
What YOU can do & updates:

media is great. But, what works best—to get donations,
at least—is getting personal. To make it easy, we’ve drafted a quick email (see bottom of update)
which gives you a simple way to share us.
every one of YOU to send this out with a little personal
note to at least ten of your friends. This will be incredibly effective in helping draw more
people into our campaign. Please feel free to add your own personal touch…especially if you know, have met, (or feel like you've met) Andrew

How’s it going? [INSERT PERSONAL]
I’m writing to let you know about a great
looking documentary film, Growing
Cities, which I’m supporting on Kickstarter.com.
The film follows two young guys across the country as the
meet folks who are revitalizing cities by growing food (watch trailer here). They want to inspire people to grow healthy communities across the country, but they need some help!!
To finish the film they need to raise $35K in 30 days to get
the film out to as many people as possible.
I hope you will consider making a
donation (no matter how small or large) to help them out. You can watch their trailer & pledge here. If you can't make a donation, I hope you will share with others.
