Dear Friend:

We are inspired and deeply moved.

Thanks to you and 3383 others who joined this campaign to challenge the power and influence of one billionaire's money, we can finish “Citizen Koch” and launch it into the world.

We’re so grateful for your participation.

You have shown us with your actions and with your words how truly committed people in the U.S. and around the world are to free speech, journalistic integrity and democracy.

We can’t wait to get the film – and the voices and stories in it – out far and wide.

There’s no limit to what we can accomplish together.

With our deepest gratitude and admiration,

Tia & Carl

P.S. You haven’t heard the last of us. We will continue to be in touch via our Kickstarter page, and we encourage you to also visit our website, www.citizenkoch.com.

      Congratulations!!!! Thank you for not caving in to intimidation by the Kochs and now you are not beholden, in any way, to PBS. I can't wait to see the film.
