CWTL Public Fundraising Appeal

As many of you who follow this blog know (or may not know), we are currently in the midst of a fundraising campaign for our documentary Conversations with the Living. It focuses on a day in the life of the entire network of people dedicated to making it possible for an HIV positive orphan to get her daily medication. Many of the people don’t know each other, but work tirelessly because of common cause. The film is dedicated to showing how these normal people make a huge difference together. The same goes for all of you out there. We need your support in order to tell this urgent but inspiring story about what people can do. A little bit from a lot of individuals can go a long way. So… Please visit our Indie GoGo campaign and make a donation if you can, or at least pass this link on to your friends and co-workers. Thanks in advance for the support. http://ow.ly/1wRqX6

We Need an On-Line Rally…

…which means that we need you. We have launched our on-line campaign on Indie Go Go to raise the funds to complete Conversations With the Living, but let’s call it an on-line demonstration; a place where people, activists, advocates, artists and filmmakers gather / assemble and give what they can, whether time, energy or money for a common purpose. This project’s team is made up of individuals focused on what is good in Haiti, and this film highlights those making a difference, an impact that has saved lives and will save millions more. Let’s get together for this common purpose. Why? Because these messages, these films that spark these conversations have a real qualitative and quantitative impact, and these conversations need to begin and need to continue.

Although the issue of HIV/AIDS is complex, people are working together to help sustain and expand a network dedicated to HIV prevention, care and support that is working in Haiti and their story MUST be told.

If you are following our project and this campaign then you know that for nearly three years we have managed to continue through donated time, efforts and services, as well as small monetary donations. Your contribution is critical to the completion of this project and we will continue to make sure that the critical work that health care workers, volunteers and patients are doing in Haiti receives the long overdue attention it deserves. It is this work by Haitians for Haitians that is saving lives and must continue.

Become a part of the CONVERSATION today!
