Mister Rogers, You & Me

Less than fifteen minutes ago, I Tweeted the following:

"Three three days and $385 left to hit our $10,000 "Mister Rogers & Me" fundraising goal... Please help!"

Two minutes and two backers later, we hit our goal!

Wow, what a day!

This afternoon, "Consuming Kids: The Hostile Takeover of Childhood " author and Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood co-founder Susan Linn agreed to appear in our film, adding authoritative ballast to our emotionally-grounded documentary.

And now this.

Plus, I realized a few days ago that we could still hit the Sundance Film Festival deadline; it's not until next Friday!

So, as I Tweeted just a few minutes ago, "Dear Internets: You believe! Deep and simple really is far more essential than shallow and complex! Thank you!!!"

Really, thank you.

Congrats!!!! Cannot wait until the film is completed! I have always been a Mister Rogers fan and am saddened on the fact that now the show is only on tv once a week(Even on WQED- his home station). Thank you for supporting and spreading the message of Mister Rogers! Hope everything works out well and the film WILL be great!

I totally missed the deadline to contribute. I can't believe it - I'm so sorry! I went to the page but it looks like it's too late. Argh!!
