BENEFITING: FUNDaFIELD

Howard Freeman

THE STORY:

In Swaziland, referred to as 'the crown jewel of Africa' just north of where we all watched the World Cup played in South Africa, there are over 200,000 orphans, 15,000 of whom are the heads of households--children taking care of children. The HIV/AIDS rate is 44%--the highest in the world. By the year 2020 there will be NO ADULTS in Swaziland unless something is done. The country will become a 'neverland.' Soccer games there will be played by children only, with no parents watching.

We are making a documentary called 'Never Neverland' with a group of Oscar-nominated and Festival Award-winning filmmakers to bring this situation to light and to come alongside in-country workers and leaders to help the children and adults there. We have finished filming and are now editing with the goal of submitting the film to Sundance in approximately one month. We need $18,000 to complete the full trailer, which will help us gain additional exposure, and then $127,000 more to complete post-production. We believe that WITH YOUR HELP we can get there!

>>>By making a gift today to one of our partners in Swaziland, FUNDaFIELD, it will help us to build soccer fields and also to produce the trailer and film, which will bring awareness to the struggles of the orphans.

Among many others, on our team is the King of Swaziland's oldest daughter, Pashu, a recent college graduate and emerging businesswoman. Our hope is that with Pashu and the others--WITH YOU--we can all, 'HELP A KING HEAL HIS PEOPLE!'

Won't you join our team RIGHT NOW?
