The final numbers and a note from Freda
Thank you so much to our 660 backers who helped us
raise $58,000 , 116% of our initial goal! We're in awe of the support we've
received over the last month (but are not surprised considering the
solidarity of the Beatles world!) Your generous contributions ensure that we can now make a finished film and
preserve Freda's stories forever, creating a document of music and cultural
To show her extreme gratitude, Freda wanted to include a note herself in this final update:
Dear Beatle People and Supporters,
I am so thankful for your amazing show of support over the last month. I have been reading your notes and watching the campaign rise, and it's touching to see your devotion to the band that changed all our lives in so many ways. I have been putting off doing something like this for some time now, but the time is finally right and I really hope you enjoy the finished product. My main goal is to present something that is honest and true. In doing that, I hope it entertains you and gives a peek into what it was like to spend a decade with the lads, their families, Brian Epstein, and everyone else in that circle. Newspapers in the 1960's called me "The Luckiest Girl in the World" because of my job, and 50 years later I realize in many ways how that was true. I'm still as big a Beatles fan today as I was in 1961 as a teenager in the Cavern Club. So a final thank you from me to you, and I hope you love the film!
The film will undoubtedly cost much more more than $50,000, so please
