WE DID IT Y'ALL!!

Together we have achieved our goal, and together we will make a difference with this film.

We are grateful for your patience, support and belief in our film. And we will make sure that everyone in the waiting room is aware of your belief in them.

Just two days ago Chris, a patient we met at Highland a couple years ago, became our 500th backer with a $1 pledge. We thanked him and he said, "I wished I could do more." Well, Chris...your pledge is a symbol of the type of spirit we hope this film will bring to the conversation around health care reform as we take it to towns and cities across America.

Here is Chris in one of our first web videos. Do yourself a favor...watch it all the way to the end and you'll understand why we became so enchanted with the idea of capturing the kaleidoscope of humanity in the waiting room.

You all have made this possible! So, on we go...

❤ Pete Nicks and the entire Waiting Room Team

      Congratulations Pete & The Waiting Room team! We look forward to this release and telling all our friends about it. The timing, given the continuing health care debate and the November election, could not be better! We're proud to have been able to contribute to your important work and success! Good luck to you all!

    RAISE YOUR VOICE: For the last 48 hours of our campaign, we're asking as many people as possible to raise their voice in solidarity with The Waiting Room by donating just $1. You won't change the world with this pledge, but you will show your support. And we will show our gratitude by THANKING YOU PERSONALLY on our official website. A pledge of $1 carries as much weight as a pledge of $1,000 because every voice matters and together we can create real impact! So please RAISE YOUR VOICE and help these stories be seen and told across the country.
