One small step for Ruby Sunshine. One giant step for our film!!

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the lack of updates lately, lots of traveling, birth of a baby, shooting for the film AND I’ve been working hard on some big steps for the film which I’m very excited about! I found the perfect Executive Producers to keep the dream moving forward with much needed financial support, why are they perfect? Well, they love our children, our film and BlinkNow as much as we do AND they are on board to donate as much profit and back end as possible back to the children and charity, which falls in line perfectly with our original vision of why we launched this project through Kickstarter with all of you in the first place! Feeling so blessed!

With that said here is a little update of some of the latest magic we’ve captured since my last update:

Our blissful time back in California, while Maggie had maternity leave and we brought Ruby Sunshine into this world, and got her strong enough to begin to travel with us back to Nepal. 

This is her first day out of the hospital. We hung prayer flags around the backyard to help her have something familiar upon her return to Nepal.

Our first trip back to Nepal since the birth of Ruby Sunshine was an emotional journey to meet all her brothers and sisters for the first time. Maggie and I got some great quality time in with the family as well as watching the soft opening of Maggie’s dream school. So proud of her and the team!!

There is still lots to be done to complete the school and we are planning to continue filming until it's fully open and the children are running through it! Also in the meantime my team is well underway into post production and making our way through the massive amount of beautiful footage we have so far! So exciting and powerful to start seeing the film being laid out in the longer format.

We want to encourage you to follow along on Facebook & Instagram to see the day to day updates and I’ll do my best to keep images and stories coming here.

*** REWARDS UPDATE -- All the available rewards have been shipped out to everyone who replied to the surveys in time. There was a lot of people who had given incorrect addresses and we had the t-shirts bounce back and we’re doing our best to solve this without burning too much on shipping. Any rewards that rely on the film being complete will obviously come much later (tickets to screening, links to film etc…)

Thank you all! More Soon! Much love to you all for being the spark that started this off! Jeremy.

      Thanks for the message Sarah. Your donation reward was "Your Name In The Credits" Everyone who donated at that level will need to wait until the film is done and released to the world! We look forward to finishing the film and celebrating all of you who helped make this film happen! But that won't be for awhile sadly, we will be spending all of 2019 editing and finishing the film! Please follow along on social media and here for updates!
