We’ll announce the winner at the end of the day Wednesday (12/4/13). The more you share, the better your odds! We don’t like to write many fundraising blog posts, but since it is Giving Tuesday, we thought it would be ok to post just one. When we started this journey, we dove into creating inspiring media head first by pointing the cameras at ourselves during the making of One Simple Question. The film shows the ups and downs of living so deeply connected with the ocean. This summer and fall we test-screened the film in four locations and asked 150 people who viewed the film how they felt immediately after. There was a nearly unanimous response of “inspired.” The second most popular response was a desire to take action to protect our wild places. People wrote:
“Your film has made me want to get out and spend more time on the water.”
“I now know that I need to make a better effort to protect our planet.”
“Watching Ben and Teresa delight in the ocean has given me the push to get out of a rut and make a change in my life.”
“It was refreshing to watch them find so much joy in seeing nature. I need to look at the world with their eyes.”
That is how we know One Simple Question is needed, and we want to spread its message. We’d love your help to make it happen. Every editor, cameraman, composer, graphic artist, etc is a volunteer giving freely of their time (and sometimes money). However, there are still significant costs to making a quality movie. Every donation goes directly to costs associated with the film. On this day, Giving Tuesday, please consider making a contribution to our films finishing funds, or sponsoring a specific need. Thank you!!
