About

My fund needs are very simple. I need funds to cover Travel Expenses, and filming costs to produce an African American Version of our very popular Virtual Santa. My business is NOT NEW, I've been producing Holiday Decor videos since 1996. Virtual Santa has been seen on ABC TV  THE GREAT CHRISTMAS LIGHT FIGHT four years in a row. 

I have received 10 years worth of requests for [what they all have asked for by name] Black Santa Video for the window. I saw Santa Dee Sinclair, from Atlanta on the Turner Network show, SANTAS IN THE BARN, and want to do Virtual Black Santa with him.  The economic situation is that he needs funds in order to fly up to our studio, and I am contributing my own studio, time and staff to produce the video. 

Why do this? I believe it is the right thing to do. Especially in the clear "Racially Charged, Race Disparity Social Situation in the USA Today". I will NOT pretend that I am a social activist, I am merely a Holiday Video Entertainer, however I do recognize that the small social contribution I can make is the African American Santa series of FX. 

It will succeed when done, I have made more than 150 others during 21 years. My primary distributor is Morris Costumes in North Carolina, if you want to view more of my other works, go to www.virtualsantaandme.com and www.virtualfxvideo.com

Risks and challenges

There are effectively NO RISKS, unless one wants to count travel delays due to weather. If you are the kind of donator who wants to donate in things with a higher chance of success, THIS IS IT. I'm 41 years in in the field of filmmaking and video fx, and if I obtain the funds needed to start this project, it WILL GET DONE, there is no question about that.

Even though I am 100% certain the project will be completed, perfectly, I am still in need of funds to Kick Start it into being. Thank you, Jon Hyers
