Straight Talk: the Numbers

Dear Ella Jenkins fans,

Things are moving in the right direction on the campaign trail.

If you haven't yet, I want to ask you to forward this update to 10 of your friends who love music, children, or the arts. Include a little note at the top about why you're a supporter. Depending on what you write, it'll take you 3 minutes, tops.

It's worth 3 minutes to preserve Ella Jenkins legacy, isn't it?

Today we crossed the $30,000 threshold. This amount means that we can get some of the important footage we need this fall, but it doesn't seal the deal for the production.

We need to hit our goal to keep this film on track. Only your sharing of this campaign can ensure it will happen.

There are more than 600 people on this email list. About half will read this message. If just those people could give a $50 donation to the campaign this week, we'd raise $15,000.

If they could each find one person who would donate $50, we'd be well within reach, and I have no doubt we'd hit our goal by Tuesday the 30th.

The weekend comes fast, and it's gone ever faster. The campaign will be over by this time next week. I encourage you to act now, before we run out of time for the campaign, and the film.

In Song and Rhythm,
