We did it!!!
As some of you know, I've been at a family funeral this past weekend, and haven't had the time (or the words) to compose an update, until now. But I just want to say, wow! Thanks to you, we did it! And thanks to a last-minute donation on behalf of the trust of my grandparents, Jack and Marcy, we finished well over our goal. I'm so grateful, and so empowered, to see the names of supporters on our list: old friends, family, and friends I have yet to meet. Thank you all.
I am headed to Michigan to begin shooting on July 16th, and Brooke will join me out there shortly. It'll be a crazy summer, but besides researching and shooting, we'll begin compiling the backer rewards that we are able to deliver now (tote bags, postcards, mailing list, paintings). We'll send everyone a survey towards the end of the summer, so that we make sure we've got your up-to-date address before we send the goodies out. The DVD and streaming code for the film will, obviously, not go out until the film is finished, ETA 2014. So stay tuned for that.
Thank you SO much for being a part of this project. We're thrilled to have you on board! Now let's move forward.
Love, Sharon (& Brooke)
