      I gave what I could afford, and I hope it helps you.
      This project is wonderful and deeply human.

      I feel privileged to be a part of such a worthy project. Thanks for making this film. Please give my best to Jay and family. Congrats on a strong start. Will do what I can to encourage friends to sponsor.

      So, time to start talking about stretch goals. Congrats!

      I'm glad you're not abandoning this film project because this is a story that needs to be told. I'm only sorry I cannot give you more. I am plugging LAKESIDE on my blog tomorrow. Best to you all,

      That sounds great, Anthony! I'll talk to you soon.

      I wish I could pledge at the $1,000 level or even more. Jay's been an inspiration to me over the past two years, and we share a history of colon cancer. Since I can't donate more money, I'd be happy to have you guest on my website,, where I've interviewed Jay in the past. We can do an email interview, or you can prepare a guest blog post -- whatever would be easiest for you, to help get the word out.
