About this project

Due To Hurricane Sandy, Astrid’s Saints , LLC has taken their campaign to www.astridsaints.com  where you can still pledge/donate and receive the same  rewards.

Sorry for the long silence of the past days but we were without electricity, internet or phone signal of any kind.

We have received some very sad news. Unfortunately, our number one investor, who wishes to remain anonymous, was tragically affected by the storm. His home and business were completely devastated. Our hearts and prayers go out to him and his family.

Our hearts also go out to all those other unfortunate victims affected by this tremendous blow from nature.

We would like to take this occasion to thank all those generous Miracle Makers who pledged and showed their support and to all the journalists and bloggers that wrote such wonderful articles filled with enthusiasm and excitement about ASTRID'S SAINTS. We hope you come with us as we continue on the road to making our movie. 

Regarding our events to raise money during our Kickstarter Campaign: the two concerts generously offered by one of our backers have been cancelled due to devastation of the locations where we were going to hold the concerts. Also, the event in honor of Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni at Centro Raccontami in NYC, had to be cancelled due to lack of power.

These events are being rescheduled to a further date. We will keep you updated. 

Hurricane Sandy might have taken many things away but she has not taken our Power!

ASTRID'S ARMY of MIRACLE MAKERS, will pick up the pieces and move on with this dream in their hearts and a movie to make! 

We are eternally grateful, 

Mariano Baino & Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni
