BENEFITING: BOLD VISIONS CONSERVATION
The crown jewel of New Mexico, Chaco Canyon, is in trouble.
A magical, mystical, and spiritual place where ancient Indians lived from 800-1300 AD is being threatened by oil and gas drillers (please watch the 3 minute video to the left and scroll through the pictures).
I'm volunteering my time for Bold Visions Conservation www.bvconservation.org because these drillers are trying to open up areas adjacent to Chaco.
If they succeed, the noise and pollution will forever destroy Chaco's ruins and mar the experience visitors have.
I'm asking you to contribute to our efforts. Bold Visions will do the hard work for us - meet with the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), the oil drillers, and government officials to get them to halt this.
All they ask for is funds to buy video equipment to document what's happening so they can educate and negotiate with these interested parties to stop this now.
They need a total of $4,289.
To those unfamilar with video production, this system seems costly, but this is an entry level system, costing about a quarter of what wedding videographers use.
Any donation amount is appreciated as 100% (less 5% the crowdfunding site charges us) will go towards purchasing this equipment to document why we must protect this World Heritage site, 1 of only 23 in the United States! (and donations are tax-deductible).
As a thank you, Bold Visions has offered the following reward levels:
for a $49 donation your name will appear in the DVD credits (that's pretty cool!)
for a $99 donation you will receive the above plus a beautiful coffee table book on New Mexico
for a $249 donation you will receive the above plus get DVD credit as an Executive Producer of the film.
Thank you for consideration of this project, knowing that you've made a positive difference in the world! :)
