We Did It, Y'all! / by Nana Duffuor

To quote the potent words of Drake, "Started from the bottom now we here!"

Thank you for helping us start 2018 off with a bang! With over 80 donations in just one month, we exceeded our Sprint Team fundraising goal, raising $5,415 for our short film production!!!

I’d like to extend a special thanks to our dear friends Jocelyn Wong and Anna Salem, whose generous matching gift lit a fire under all our asses and pushed the campaign total over the edge!

We are so deeply humbled and moved by your generosity, and we hold the power of your support closely as we move forward with this project. We have our first team meeting of 2018 this Sunday and are fired up and ready to go!

Despite our rather goofy promotional videos, much of the work involved in Sprint requires me and the Team to visit very difficult places emotionally and psychologically, to uplift experiences and stories that remind us of deep hurts, humiliations, and injustices in an effort to offer our communities healing and connection. Know that it’s your support--your financial investment, your kind words, your sharing of our work, your sharing of your own work, your sharing of opportunities--that inspires us to “take it there.” ‘Cause believe you me, we’re takin’ it there, with your love and support in our hearts every step of the way.

I’ll end with congratulations, y’all!!! We’re doing it!!! I look forward to sharing more of this journey with you. Happy New Year, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

With love and gratitude,
The Sprint Film Team
