Dear Internet,

My name is David Anderson, and the man you hopefully just watched in the video above is my father, Ken Anderson. My dad spent his early career as a city and regional planner around the world, but for almost three decades, he has had one primary mission in life: to protect and preserve Pah Tempe Mineral Hot Springs. Ken and Cordula, his wife of 17 years, along with many other dedicated friends and colleagues, have worked tirelessly to share its soothing, healing mineral water and serene location with the world. 

We think far more people need to know about this place and its history, so we're reaching out to ask the Kickstarter community to help us make a documentary about its and their story. Watch the trailer below:
