      We have had many questions from folks wanting to continue to donate to the film - and we welcome the generosity as there's still a fair bit of work to do! We are working on getting donation capability set up at www.elementstour.com, but in the interim, please email us at sara.close@gmail.com to discuss. Stay tuned here as well for updates on distribution to the public.

      Thank you for reminding me what I had forgotten. The amount I pledged is exactly the amount of a paycheck I received today, for doing a job I am good at and like doing, but is never something that will lead me to living my dream. Since I am starting today, it might take a little time, but when I get it, the first paycheck I make doing a job that WILL help me live my dream will go to you guys too.
