With 16 hours left to go in our Thunderclap campaign, we are fully supported with more than 200 supporters with a collective social reach of almost 124,000 people! We can't thank you enough!!!
There's still time to join our efforts to spread the word about our film and Matt's important story. In these final hours, please consider sharing our campaign with your community to help us expand our social reach. Even 17 years later, Matt's story is a tragic and relevant narrative echoed far too often around the U.S. and the world.
We believe our film is an important tool that can help begin a dialogue about acceptance that has the power to change the world. On the night before our film's digital release, we thank YOU for helping us on this journey to share Matt's story with our biggest audience yet! <3
