dear supporters

I wanted to write you and let you know that outside of your support,  we have received the highest endorsement we could hope for - and that is donation towards this campaign from one our main subjects of the film - Earlene Tribble, mother of Moses. As well, 2 teachers from the school have also donated. For me, one of my primary hopes in making the film is that the people it is about feel trust us, and feel that we are telling their story honestly. Their support on kickstarter couldn't say that more clearly!  I'm hoping that it will make you feel good about supporting the film as well. 

THANKS,  EARLENE, CHARLENE, AND NIJ!  And to everyone else whose made this a great week for us. We are 4 days in and 1/4 of the way to our goal - that's great! Of course, our real goal is much higher than 10k, but we are hopeful. Spread the word!

Looking forward to sharing the film with you all. 

thanks and have a good weekend,
