Friends, what I am about to share with you has really touched my heart, and I want to help get the mes­sage out far and wide. It’s a story of love, loss, and heartache deeper than it would have had to be if jus­tice and equal­ity, not to men­tion sim­ple com­pas­sion, had been prac­ticed. I learned about it through Shelly Gold­stein, one of our most awe­some writ­ers at the “10,000 Cou­ples” web-mag. She plugs this project in our July issue.

If you will, I’d be grate­ful for your tak­ing a few min­utes to read about this doc­u­men­tary film project and, most impor­tant, to watch the video that explains it all. Then, if your heart is moved, please make a pledge. Shane and Linda need $300,000 in pledges by JULY 19 in order to make the film. You can pledge as lit­tle as a dol­lar, though I opted to give $50. Wish I could do much more. Hope you can help.

This mes­sage was in my email inbox this morning:

Hello every­one,

Thank you for your con­tin­ued sup­port! We have now passed over 1,000 back­ers and we are not far from reach­ing 50% of our goal. 

Kick­starter fundrais­ing cam­paigns tend to slow down around the halfway mark, so we ask that you please con­tinue doing what­ever you can to spread the word about Bride­groom. If we don’t reach our goal of $300,000 by Thurs­day July 19th, all of your pledges are returned, and we not only lose the oppor­tu­nity to make this film, but we lose the oppor­tu­nity to open people’s hearts and minds on this impor­tant human rights issue. 

Sin­cerely,

Linda and Shane

Thanks, every­one.  ~Heidi

The pub­lisher of the web-zine I write and edit for posted this as “Our Cur­rent Video Fav.” I just hap­pened to check in at the site in time to catch it. WOW!

Is that not a tear-jerker — espe­cially at the end when their hun­dreds of fam­ily and friends come in???

Here’s a video you MUST see. It speaks for itself.
