Hello and thank you! This is my first community fundraiser. I've been traveling across America and around the world to connect and share hopeful conversations on climate and community. The Climate Listening Project explores the connections that are important to each of us: family, faith, health, business, nature, community, and more - weaving together inspiring stories with the latest science. Thank you for helping distribute our latest Climate Listening Project series "The Story We Want". The funds will be used for advertising, promotion, film festival submissions, local events and more.
Since the Climate Listening Project launched a few years ago, funds have gone to hire more than 30 diverse filmmakers and creatives, film hundreds of people in three countries and twelve of the United States, and reach more than 8 million people with hopeful conversations on climate and community. Climate Listening Project films continue to be useful, screening across the United States and around the world online, at community events, colleges and universities. Our first feature documentary "The Wood Thrush Connection" was just selected as the Winner of the Belize International Film Festival!
While filming "The Story We Want", we traveled across America to meet with women who are working together to protect their families and communities. I listened to unsung heroes confronting fossil fuel industries, climate change impacts, and a culture of extraction. These individuals are doing research, working together for solutions, and planting seeds of hope.
We've completed production and editing on the five part series and are out of funds to continue to meet distribution requests. I hosted "The Story We Want" premiere events in New York, Washington, D.C., and Asheville. But, requests keep coming in for additional distribution.
Their stories are important. Any donation amount will go to making sure these stories are heard! We can inspire people to share their stories and take action in this critical time.
Every $1 helps.
