Hello Friends!

With one week to go we reached an important milestone yesterday: 200 backers. We chose crowdfunding as the next step in our development because we believe in "crowd first, funds second". Find passionate people who are taking action to create the world they want to live in and the money will follow. Thank you for your vision and support.

Since many of you are first time Kickstarter backers, I want to make sure you know the rules of this game. It's "ALL or NOTHING".  We reach our goal of $25K by next Thursday at 5:21am PST and we get to keep the money. We fall short by even one dollar and we get nothing. We knew the rules of this game when we chose to play here. Go big or go home. Let's go big. 

If everyone here shares this campaign with one other person, and they back us, our goal will be met quickly and easily. Think of someone you know RIGHT NOW that believes strong women and girls should be center stage and invite them to back us, RIGHT NOW.

Speaking of strong women at center stage, I had the good fortune of attending an event in San Francisco this Monday hosted by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. Their motto is our motto. "If She Can See It, She Can Be It! Creating media that reflects the real world makes the world a better place for everyone. Geena Davis was the very first person to receive our new [STRONG FEMALE LEAD] t-shirt. How cool is that!

That's it for now. On to the finish line. Reach out to someone you know right now and invite them to back our campaign TODAY.  Seven days and $7K to go. We can do this. Thank you for your support!
