FUNDRAISING UPDATE, 7  AUGUST 2022

It is with so much gratitude that I give this fantastic update! A generous Anonymous donor donated $5,000 to the NHT fundraising campaign. We need to keep the momentum going and match this incredibly generous gift. Look for incentives on the fundraising site soon! Donations come in all shapes and sizes. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

This is the most critical item on the NHT agenda currently. The film cannot be made without your help. It truly does take a village to make a movie. As a matter of fact, there is an area on set called "the village!"   A fundraising page for NHT has been set up on gofundme.com for donations. Your donation will be greatly appreciated!

Other ways to help get us going are donating office items, donating food for the starving crew and cast, donating old costumes, and volunteering to help in whatever way you can. Most importantly, spread the word!

Many Mahalos,

Megan
