END OF THE YEAR UPDATE: WE ARE ALMOST THERE. PLEASE HELP US GET CLOSER WITH YOUR END OF THE YEAR DONATION!
A year ago today our Kickstarter campaign wrapped up. And what a year it has been!
We would like to update everyone on where we are, and remind all our readers/followers/supporters that there is still time to make a tax-deductible year end donation to support the ongoing expenses of making this film.
As of today we have raised close to half our year-end goal of $25,000. We hope you will help us make it the rest of the way. We promise it will be worth it.
We have been sending out postcards, but we do not have mailing addresses for all the lovely people on our ‘mailing’ list.
So. Here’s an electronic version (Scroll down to see both front and back):
In case you cannot read the attached text, it is as follows:
Hey There Friends & Supporters,
In 2013, WE FINISHED SHOOTING THIS FILM! We could not have done it without YOU! We are now beginning the final phase of creating The Girl Who Knew Too Much, the heart-wrenching and hopeful story of Shan- ta and her family’s global struggle for survival in a changing world.
We will soon be handing off our footage to Fiona Otway, the three-time Oscar nominee who serves as our lead editor. We have already raised half the funds needed to get Fiona going with the editing. We are hoping to raise another $25,000 between now and December 31 to finish this step and to begin marketing the film to festivals around the world.
Every dollar helps us complete the film and bring Shanta’s story to the screen. Please include us in your giving this year and make a tax-deductible donation to support The Girl Who Knew Too Much. You can give online at: http://girlworldproject.org/donate or by mailing a check to: Girlworld, c/o Shunpike | 3518 Fremont Avenue North, Box 118 | Seattle, WA 98103. Please make checks payable to “Shunpike” and put “Girlworld” in the memo line.
We are so grateful to have you on our team! Thank you for making it possible to share Shanta’s story. You are helping us carry forward the meaning and dignity of her life.
Amy Benson and Scott Squire
