Project: Filming of the.sex.talk for Parents & Students
With all of the conversation on the new sex education curriculum there is still very little talk on how we as parents can help our kids navigate this tough conversation. For those of us coming from a Christian Worldview we are trying to connect our faith with this conversation as well. How do we as parents help our kids connect their faith and this conversation on sex? I presently have over 200 emails from parents saying they have no idea where to start with this discussion. Over the past year I have worked hard to redesign my presentation called the.sex.talk to help empower and equip parents in this conversation with their kids. The talk is ready and I am speaking it at churches and conferences but as a speaker I can only reach so many audiences. Worlds Apart wants to make a significant impact to prepare Canadian Christians to have a more clear voice in this discussion and there is no bigger water cooler talk than this one at present.
What I would like to do this fall(2015) is to film this talk. The cost for the filming, editing, printing of DVD/BlueRay, setting up of digital downloads, and a Trailer will be around $12,000. As a small non profit our revenue is not large enough to apply for most grants from foundations which leaves me with asking for donations from people and businesses.
So I am asking for your help:
- Are you able to help donate some money towards this project? This could be someone donating $20 or someone who wants to fund the entire project.
- Do you know of any businesses that might be able to help out a project like this? Does your place of work make donations to non-profits?
- Do you know of any foundations that accept applications for smaller faith based non profits?
- Do you have any other ideas of how I can raise the funds for this project?
If you are willing to make a donation here is a link to our Charity page on CanadaHelps (Click Here). They will process your donation and give you a tax receipt. You can also send a cheque if that is what you prefer. I thank you in advance for any support you can give.
Thanks for your help and if you have any questions please let me know.
