2 DAYS LEFT and counting + GREAT NEWS!
WE DID IT...Thanks to YOU!
There are no words to describe how it felt to wake up to such a massive global hug! We hit our goal today, beyond our wildest expectations, and STILL 2 DAYS LEFT We are now driving beyond 100K, and the love keeps pouring in. Absolutely unbelievable! We are shocked, humbled, exhausted, exhilarated, and 100% focused on next steps: Returning to Egypt to incorporate footage from recent events, edit and score the film in its final form, then delivering it to the world.
There are no words to describe how incredible it feels, this connection across the planet over the past few days and week. Yet our fears remain. Egypt is in turmoil, and our friends and families are at risk. The situation Egypt continues to worsen.
And, in the midst of an uncertain future for Egypt, we must return soon to connect with our dear friends – the brave and inspirational team of citizen journalists and activists who are risking their lives every day for basic rights. We must get this most recent footage into the final cut and capture faithfully the contagious spirit at the core of this demand for change.
We are reaching out to EVERYONE in these FINAL 2 DAYS to ask...
Can you please continue to help us go further and beyond over the next 2 days. Can you help us use this power, this weapon, this social media connection...to help us change the world?
DONATE NOW and your pledge is DOUBLED!
An anonymous backer has offered a very generous incentive during these final, critical moments. EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR donated through the end of our campaign, March 7 (THIS THURSDAY, 2 DAYS AWAY) will be MATCHED, which means that your donation means twice as much and goes twice as far!
AND by popular demand, we have EXTENDED the offer for on-screen FILM CREDIT to those who pledge (or up to) $50 or more.
Any extra funds that are raised will go towards the amazing team at our office in Cairo who are continuing to capture events as they happen on the ground, and help replace the equipment that was confiscated during filming.
Let’s please keep in touch via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, our mailing list, by phone, old school, new school, doesn’t matter. We'd love to hear from you, and we're looking forward to bringing the film to you.
Hugs all around from the team at The Square! www.thesquarefilm.com
