Our film is Project of the Day on today!

A BIG THANKS to those of you who have contributed to our film on Kickstarter!  We've been working hard to get the word out about the film, and today we are featured as indieWIRE's project of the day!  
Joe Gantz spent the weekend in Portland, meeting with crew, visiting the 211 office, and laying the groundwork for production, scheduled for November 28th.  There is definitely a lot of passion and enthusiasm for this subject matter, and it seems like  EVERYONE we talk to about this film feels the same sense of urgency to show the consequences of this broken economy from the viewpoint of families just trying to get by.  Now we just have to reach our funding goals to make sure we can start shooting by the end of November and get this film out into the world before the 2012 elections!  Keep spreading the word!  We need your help to make this happen!  

How families cope as they lose it all

A very interesting article in the Los Angeles Times about families trying to cope during the financial crisis. Familes facing the economic downturn deserve the voice that the documentary Crisis Call 211 (now renamed American Winter) will give them. By helping finance the documentary on KickStarter you can help give a voice to those most at risk.
