      It's been almost two years since there was an update on this project. Has there been any kind of movement at all?

    For a pledge of $25 or more, Catherine Gund and Aubin Pictures offer the BOOK COMPANION to Gund's perception-shattering film, WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE? In case you don't know: Seven kids and their families explore the food chain. With honesty, humor, and creativity, they face serious issues, including lack of access to fresh food, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and food allergies. They celebrate time together by cooking and gathering at the table. The stories, recipes, and terrific activities in this book will inspire readers of all ages to be conscious of what they're eating and where it comes from. WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE? started out as a documentary film from the point of view of two curious 11-year-old girls, Sadie and Safiyah. The film was broadcast on The Discovery Channel's Planet Green and has been screened hundreds of times around the world, from Washington to Wisconsin, Glasgow to Seoul. As Sadie and Safiyah say, "We're talking about our neighborhood. What about yours?" WOW! This is our kind of story. Pledge now and receive a copy of this book for a limited time!

    Johanna Fateman: entrepreneur, musician, writer, and artist. Beloved by all who know her, and even by some who don't. We were able to convince her to go for the heart, and she has agreed to our suggestion: PET PORTRAITS. Your pet is a person you love in a special way, and Johanna is capable of evoking that love in a gorgeous watercolor portrait. Because this work is time consuming, and because Johanna, an artist with a reputation to precede her, has offered to produce these one-of-a-kind portraits for a radical, innovative, and necessary project that needs as much support as possible, this prize is being offered at the $500 pledge level. One watercolor portrait, on 8.5" x 11" heavyweight paper, will be painted from photographs provided by each project backer who selects this prize. DELIVERED BY CHRISTMAS.
