We are gearing up for a global release on September 22, 2012 and we could use your assistance. We have most everything in place except music videos for for our two lead singles I Found My Music and Nature Superhero. *If you'd like to be an extra in our shoots, we'd LOVE to hear from you! Check out the teaser still image video below (non-indicative of the forthcoming). 

I Found My Music features local thirteen year old Ashlie Cortez and tells the story of a tween who feels out of balance in life until she finds her music. 

Nature Superhero - featuring 13 year olds Milo McFly (of Los Angeles), Lil JaXe (of Toronto), Arianna (of Oakland) - tells the story of kids discovering their own nature and that nature is within them. Check out Milo McFly's blog post about his summer and his recent video.

USE OF FUNDS
Specifically, we will use the funds for stipends for kids on the lead songs (Ashlie, Milo, Little Jaxe), the production and editing of two music videos, and some PR/Social Media support to help them "go spiral" (like nature). Millions of views or bust! The videos will be produced by Recultured Media.

Please use this as an opportunity to get Pacha's Pajamas books and music to the kids in your life. 

Additional funds will be used to further promote the launch.

TAX DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTIONS
Contributions of $150 or larger can be channeled through our 501c3 sponsored project - BALANCE Films - as donations, and be tax deductible. If you would like your contribution to be a tax deductible donation, please contact dave@pachaspajamas.com. Matching donations through corporate giving programs are appreciated. Donations to BALANCE Films will be used to promote our stage program, which enables schools and theater programs to use and adapt the stage script and musical score of Pacha's Pajamas. Participants include Destiny Arts Center in Oakland, Dunham Academy in Marin, and the Winnsboro Center for the Arts in East Texas.  

ABOUT PACHA'S PAJAMAS

Pacha’s Pajamas is about a little girl who becomes a Superhero for Nature through her dreams. One night as she falls asleep, the animals and plants on her magical, new pajamas come alive. Disguised as a small gorilla, Pacha discovers an unlikely group of creatures feeling sad about the state of the world. Nature unites to tell its captivating story at a global festival, where Pacha plays her part to bring balance to the planet!
