That's News to Us!

Another quick post tonight. We had a very informative and positive conference call on Wednesday evening, between our partners and two reps from the crowdfunding platform that we are seriously considering. They provided both clearer and stronger information that will play a major part in our final decision.

There was one very important point that they brought up and we weren't aware of. And that is before we can even begin our campaign for money, we need to very seriously and strongly increase the number of our followers! Now, if we were just throwing a few "rescue videos" on YouTube, we'd be fine. But we're not. We are looking to finance and produce a professional and dynamic pilot episode of our show, "Cause & Origin," and that will take a major increase of followers and, at the right time, a lot of money.

Listen, we're currently closing in on 800 Twitter followers. According to our advisers, we will need to increase that number into the tens, if not hundreds of thousands! How can we do that?

Here it is in plain language: There are an estimated 1.2 million firefighters throughout the U.S.; career, volunteer, and paid on-call. There's no way we'll reach all of them, but think of it this way. When the time comes for the money, if every one of them donated $1.00, we'd be perfectly set to shoot the pilot. But that is not going to happen!

Again, we desperately need your help. Please reach out to each and every firefighter/rescue friend you have. Reach out to your spouses and significant others. Reach out to your broader family. If you're a member of the IAFF, please contact your local and regional members. Letter HQ in Washington and Ottawa know that you'd like to support our efforts. 

How do we define, "support?" We are not asking you for a single penny, right now; not a dime! All we're asking for is to help grow our numbers so that when it is time to launch the financial side of the campaign, we'll have thousands of people to share our message with. 

So many have come forward already to help in any way possible. And we are sincerely appreciative of your support, loyalty and encouragement. Now, please tell everyone else you know. They don't have to be involved in the fire service. They just need to enjoy quality television with great writing and compelling characters!

THANK YOU! Stay Safe  - Every One Goes Home!
