Hey everyone! December 31 is just around the corner. Thanks to your support, we’ve almost raised $9,600 through our end of the year crowdfunding campaign Amplify Stories to Light. If you haven’t yet donated, we hope you will consider donating in these last few days of the campaign. With your support we’ll start 2015 stronger than ever.
We’re excited to announced that long-time CAAM filmmaker partner Yuriko Gamo Romer has donated 5 copies of her documentary Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful (which CAAM funded in 2011 and premiered at SFIAAFF—now CAAMFest—in 2012) as a new campaign perk. Mrs. Judo documents the life-long journey of Keiko Fukuda’s decision to defy thousands of years of tradition, choose her own path, and become the highest-ranking woman in judo history.
The first 5 people who donate $35 or more by to CAAM’s crowdfunding campaign Amplify Stories to Light at www.CAAMedia.org/Amplify by December 31st will receive one of the five copies of Mrs. Judo. The recipients will be notified by email by January 2nd.
