Kickstarter Campaign
14-02-2012 - The Rada Film Group has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the final production funding for their 12-year documentary American Promise. The American Promise team has 30 days–from February 13th to March 13th–to raise $50,000 to complete the film; if they don't reach $50,000, they get nothing (and no one gets charged for their donation). We're really excited about this project, so we hope you'll check it out (along with their awesome video and one-of-a-kind rewards) at http://kck.st/xTCEqQ. (Caroline Stratton)
