Hello Friends and Supporters!
I am happy to announce that we have launched our second and final Kickstarter fundraising campaign. Visit it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aplacetostand/a-place-to-stand-finishing-production
Our goal this year is $50,000. Once we raise this, we can complete a rough cut of the entire film and start submitting to festivals and distributors. More importantly, we can start making an impact.
Upon completion, free copies of A Place to Stand will be given to detention centers, prisons and schools for at-risk youth. They will be coupled with programming designed to help people find in themselves what Jimmy found through his poetry: a place to stand in life, a sense of self-worth, and a reason to live.
Your support last year enabled us to get this far. Please consider matching last year’s donation. That would give us a huge head start. If we don’t reach our funding goal by our deadline, July 31, we get nothing, so your initial support is very important in getting the ball rolling.
We look forward to your support. Please be in touch if you have ideas on spreading the reach of our project.
Director, A Place to Stand
