Dear Friends of Queen of the Sun and Seed Family,
With the busy holiday season, we know many of you have been focused on family, celebration, relaxation and reverence for a sacred time of year. If you haven't had a chance to get to our previous e-mails we have something exciting to share with you.
We're making a new film. SEED: The Untold Story will reveal the awe, wonder and hidden beauty of seeds. The film will investigate the decline of seed diversity over the past century and the rise of a small number of corporations who control the majority of the world's seed supply. We will follow heroes working to preserve agricultural security and seed diversity in this uphill battle against high-tech industrial chemical companies. SEED will unearth an incredible new movement emerging all around the world to protect our shared rights to seed.
We are raising $50,000 through an online Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign to fund a large part of the production for SEED. As we send this e-mail, we have made just over $25,000. Thank you so much for those of you who have helped us reach the halfway point! Now, we need all of your help to get us over the hump and into the home stretch! Kickstarter is all-or-nothing, if we don't make this goal, we don't get to keep any of the money we've raised so far, so it's vital that we get to our $50,000 goal so that we can continue shooting SEED to aim for completion by the end of 2013.
If you're waiting to donate until the end. We urge you to give now so we can see where we stand. You can always increase your pledge later, so if you are able, there's no reason not to give today.
