“(Dear Ladybrille readers) I am writing this email to personally (ask) for your help with a project that is very close and dear to my heart. I am working on a short film that I sincerely believe will shed light on the issue of HIV/AIDS and senior citizens. I do believe that this film, SAVING FATHER which I wrote will generate much needed dialogue on this topic.

Please, I am asking you to view fund raising page and consider making a minimum tax deductible donation of $25.00 to help me meet my goal of getting this film made. 

How to show support: Please click on, click on contribute (please note, you do not have to chose the amounts with perks), scroll down to”No Perks” and place the minimum amount requested or any other amount you would like to donate. I really appreciate your help and I thank you in advance for your support.
