On February 28, 2014 we launched an ambitious Kickstarter campaign. 30 days, 309 backers, and $35,115 later, we find ourselves blown away by the incredible support that came flooding in. We exceeded our goal ($26,250), and our expectations.
The funds collected during this campaign will go towards two things: finishing The Homestretch and igniting the film’s outreach plans. This means everything from giving the film an original score to getting the film in front of policy makers on Capitol Hill. The success of our Kickstarter was crucial as we approach our world premiere at the HotDocs film festival and embark on years of homeless-youth advocacy.
Though it is no longer open for donations, our fully funded Kickstarter page will remain viewable online. Check it out for details about our film, our plans for the funds, and other valuable information.
