HOURS PLEDGED: 325
I am raising funds for Against The Grain Productions, a non-profit dreamed up by my sister and grown into a great cause by our family and friends.
Film is one of the most powerful ways to enlighten, inform, and inspire. Yet it is also a medium where the Asian American perspective is often overlooked over misrepresented. In true spirit of the definition, ATG Against The Grain Productions Inc. was founded to produce films, media outreach programs and community events that promote awareness and unity of Asian American culture and identity.
A little out of the ordinary in its methods, ATG is an innovative resource that gives voice to significant, relevant and untold stories in our community. These projects will create future educational, cultural, and artistic opportunities for Asians and Asian Americans. Led by a Board of experienced Asian American professionals and dedicated community leaders, ATG also functions as a traditional non–profit, using media projects to raise funds for international orphanages.
Your donations also provide food and medical supplies for needy orphanages in Saigon, Hue, and Danang.
