I am sharing in an effort to raise support and awareness for this project. The 1st link is to the film's website and the site includes a very moving clip from the documentary. If you click on the 2nd link below it will take to you a page where you can read more specifically about the project and how to pledge. They have until 5/27/12 through this link to raise $12,000 in pledges (or more) to aid in funding this documentary about American Gold Star Mothers. As of this evening, they have topped the $9,000 mark and have a very short period of time to raise the remaining almost $3,000.
Little it is written in history about this support available to mothers who have made the ultimate sacrifice--their child for our country and freedom. I cannot begin to imagine such grief or loss. I would love to see more shared with the public about these women and their brave children who gave their lives for each of us. If you decide to make a pledge, you will not be charged for your pledge unless they reach their goal by 5/27.
I am also including a link to their FB page and main website for the project.
You can see a clip and learn more here--so MOVING!!!!
Thanks in advance for sharing and any donations that may result.
