Long story told in a couple of rambling sentences:
I met Lindsy through our online book club, and she introduced me to Nadus Films. I asked Lindsy if she wanted tell you about Nadus Films' latest project, and she said she couldn't resist because 1.) She and her husband were founding members of this organization and 2.) Nadus Films' Kickstarter Campaign ends at 12:31 pm on Satruday, as in this Saturday, as in less than twenty-four hours from now.
Here's Lindsy to tell you more.
I’m pumped Amy is giving me the opportunity to introduce you to an organization that is near and dear to my heart, Nadus Films.
Simply put, Nadus films makes films that make a difference All. Over. The. World.
In their own words, Nadus does this by “documenting some of the most jacked up social justice issues this world faces."
Nadus goes to the places few filmmakers dare to go, telling the stories of innocent people with HUGE hearts and connecting them to strategic partners who can lift them out of poverty.
That’s what I love about Nadus, they don’t just make beautiful films. The films are a call to action. Viewers are jolted to compassion, and Nadus provides an outlet for that compassion.
Each film they produce gives birth to on the ground partners. The partners receive 100% of campaign donations resulting from the film itself and a percentage of film proceeds.
Their latest project, BBOY for Life, tells the extremely powerful story of the lives of young break dancers in Guatemala City, affected by some of the world’s most dangerous gangs.
So far in Guatemal, the Nadus crew has provided scholarships for the main characters in the film. Chiz, Gato and Leidi are going to school because of the work of Nadus. They will be off the streets and away from the gangs. They are improving their futures and the future for their families.
The Poker Crew, with the help of Nadus, is teaching kids in the ghetto to dance while also tutoring them. How cool is that?
And if that isn’t enough, Nadus is partnering with Hope Renewed International working in the ghettos, dumps and prisons by providing job placement, scholarships and homes for families living in the dump.
If you’re looking for a way to serve the world, you have the opportunity to do more than
just watch a documentary.
You can help create one.
Between now and tomorrow at 12:31 pm EST, Nadus needs $10,000 to complete this film. So far, they've raised $133,000 for BBOY for Life. (Including the $10k Kickstarter pledges to date.)
All they need is the last $10,000 to finish strong!
This compelling story unfolds into a powerful film. What else could happen when you're having slumber parties in the ghettos of Guatemala City with some of the world’s deadliest gangsters and most talented break dancers?
But people need to see it in order for the compassion and action to take place.
If you're not able to pledge, would you be willing to spread the word by sharing the Nadus campaign?
You too can help make films that make a difference.
Thanks, Lindsy. I can't wait to see the movie. If you want to help spread the word, please take a minute to share on all of those fantastic social media outlets you are a part of, or click over and learn more about Nadus' Kickstarter Campaign.
