UPDATE: Our Public TV Drive: $30,000 so far!
Two weeks ago we put out the word that we've been invited to bring Inlaws & Outlaws to public television. As marriage equality takes center stage, we knew we could not pass up this tremendous opportunity to make an impact when it matters most. So we asked for your help in getting there and, we're thrillled at the response so far.
We've raised nearly $30,000 of our goal of $50,000 by Sept 30!
Over 85 of our friends and fans have made tax-deductible contributions, large and small, to bring our current total to $29,956! We also got the support of The Faygele ben Miriam Fund, our first major underwriter. Given ben Miriam's own remarkable story of activism for LGBT equality, we couldn't be more honored.
But we still have a way to go before we meet our deadline!
What's the money for?
Public TV is free to all viewers but there are no ads to pay producers for their programs — and the cost of broadcasting them. Underwriting makes that possible. Your support will pay for vital post-production for broadcast, closed captioning, station relations and more. We couldreally use your help in getting to our goal in less than two weeks. Donate
Yes, we've made great progress in the fight for equality. And we think having our stories told has made all the difference in the world. Time after time we've seen that once people know someone gay — and hear their story — they're far more likely to support equal rights.
And that includes the freedom to marry.
YOU are the Hearts + Minds Campaign!
"An incredible opportunity to support an incredible film" — Colleen Short
"I have been a supporter of Inlaws and Outlaws since its inception — what better time than now to leverage the power of its stories about love, family and marriage between two people." — Alan Young
"Gay people and straight allies of Planet Eearth: A few years ago I saw a wonderful, locally-produced documentary on marriage equality. With the election and the marriage equality vote here in Washington state, this film has a chance to really make a difference." — Jen Olson
A gift of any size will make a difference!
