Great News--Live from the Edit Room!

Posted by Kathy Leichter (Creator)


We raised over $7,000 in the first seven days of our Kickstarter Finish The Film campaign!

Thank you so much for contributing to this campaign and getting the word out.

You are the power that keeps us going and going! I look forward to celebrating the premier of HERE ONE DAY with you all. Please send us your favorite photo to include on the "Supporters Wall." You can email these to

The word is spreading and press outlets are showing interest in HERE ONE DAY---we appreciate all of your media outreach leads. 

Dr. Deborah Serani wrote a great article about the film on the Psychology Today website. Check it out here: 

You have already helped us by donating and we are so grateful. Another way you can make a big difference is to help us reach new donors.

If each of you writes an email to your friends, family, and colleagues with a short paragraph about why this project is important to you, why you believe in it, telling people that you have supported this project and asking them to contribute, we could reach hundreds! You can tell people that our goal is to raise $ 25,000 by May 31st. To keep the money, we must reach this goal.  

So all it takes is a short paragraph strongly endorsing the project and a link to this Kickstarter page: Even if you are able to send an email to five people, that would be amazing.

Every new dollar enables us to keep editing towards the finish line. You are our HERE ONE DAY Heroes. Lets multiply and grow!  


And in honor of Mother's Day, here's to mothers everywhere, past and present! 


With enormous gratitude,


(Pola and I tucked away in the edit room today--->thanks for keeping us going!)
