POST AWARD CELEBRATION (Sunday Oct 25)
We are hoping that everyone, who was connected to the film campaign in the last few weeks, will join us in celebration.
When: Sunday 10/25, 2PM EDT.
Please register with Zoom to the event prior to 10/25.
Program will include:
•Musical and spoken word performances
•Update on the HVP Sala construction
•Celebration of our global achievement of getting 25,274 votes with 110,182 views of our film in just a few weeks.
•An update on our GFM campaign to raise funds to build the foundation and dome of the Sala. We’ve done well and only need $20,000. We are so close!
The fundraising portion to raise $20,000 is simple, and we are proposing to ask our supporters to help us close the funding gap in several ways:
1) Pledge $1,000, a 50% match to the AIA challenge
2) Pledge $500, a 25% match to the AIA challenge
3) Pledge to conduct a workshop on Asking, coordinated by HVP
4) Pledge to do a daily Asking in support of HVP for the next 3 weeks
If you would like to participate in our fundraising, we suggest any Askings, workshops or collection of funds can be coordinated by country or in groups of people from each park/region.
Please join us for a celebration of “Beacon of Light!”
