Update #15

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

We are absolutely speechless about the amount of support we've had throughout this campaign and especially everyone who helped us spread the word in the last few days. We have finally reached our goal of $50,000 and still with 49 more hours to go. Amazing, just utterly amazing.

Now we can go to the broadcasters and producers with the solid fact that people want to see this film made and that it's important to so many people that this piece of history is preserved. The grandmothers will get one step closer to finding the peace that they deserve and for that we are truly grateful. 

Friends, family, and strangers around the world have gotten us here and there isn't enough Thank you's we can say to express the amount of gratitude we feel. When the movie is finished, we will invite you to join us in celebrating the stories of these Grandmothers and honour the struggles that they have endured for so long.

Thank you thank you thank you for making my dream and the dreams of these Grandmothers come true.

Sincerely,

Tiffany and the Forever Grateful (and even more friendly) Team at Golden Nugget

      Not even joking, when I read this at 11PM last night, I went "YES!" and even did the little fist-grabbing-the-air thing. :)
