Update #1

Moving Right Along!

Comment

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to send a quick update to personally thank you for getting on board the Project Dad fundraising campaign so promptly!  We're now several days into the campaign, and we could really use your help reaching out past our community of friends--the "friend zone"--to a wider community of people who might help support the film.

Would you please forward our Kickstarter page to your friends and acquaintances?  If you're on Facebook, post our campaign, and "like" us at facebook.com/dadproject.  Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/#!/ProjectDadFilm.  You can also check our new website, projectdadfilm.com.

If you have connections to blogs, websites, news sites, Twitter, etc. and could send them our campaign, we would appreciate it SO much.

Whether you're LGBT yourself, or whether you're simply a friend, family member, or ally, I think it's important to show that understanding and acceptance of LGBT people and their families is something that lots of Americans can get behind.

Thank you so much, everyone; we feel really lucky to have you on board!

-Sharon and Brooke
