Films that truly matter are hard to find, but when you discover a story which touches your heart like ELLEN'S LIGHT, you are moved to make the miracle happen. People all the time ask us, what motivates you all to make a movie? It takes a lot of time, there is risk involved, capital needed and more, so why go through all this anxiety?
Ellen is the reason for our motivation. We have never met a woman who has inspired us more. She needs medical support, an opportunity to see again and her story, could start a domino effect reaching many with visual impairments. We have never been part of anything this big in helping others. Ellen desires to help the world with her light!
Trauma victims and bombing survivors are often forgotten to a large degree in America today. On 9-11 the families were made a priority and millions of dollars were distributed to the victims and those who lost so very much. This was not the case for Ellen and her family.
Here was the problem in 1998 and this is what we are facing today. Ellen did not receive the economic support from the Federal Government even though she was working as a Civil Servant. She was nearly killed, has endured over three dozen surgeries and all that comes from her heart, is joy. She is not able to afford the medical attention she really needs.
So why not create multiple income streams not just for Ellen, but for so many who are hurting!
Can you imagine joining a crusade with this kind of motivation?
My grandmother near the end of her life, was blind. She learned to live with her handicap and turn her tragedy into triumph. Each year at the holiday season, she would knit small Christmas decorations using muscle memory from when she was a younger woman, crafting santa clause faces, stockings, bird houses and more. Her legacy after she passed and the most important treasure of her hands from deep in my heart, were those precious holiday ornaments, built by a beautiful woman who could not see.
When we met Ellen, we saw the light in her eyes and the hope in her heart and pledged to do everything we could to help her miracle come true. Now you see why we are so passionate about this. The entire story has just come to our team in the last forty five days. Now, we are on a HUGE journey to help.
Would you join us today? We need a miracle. We need financial partners, donors and investors to come alongside of our dream.
No matter where you are in life, please consider pledging today to Veritas Mission Films, where the money will be invested in making a feature film special in a documentary to help provide income supporting Ellen to receive bionic eyes from SECOND SIGHT. Help bring her hope into focus and be a blessing by giving to others.
Maybe you are an investor and you have a high risk portfolio opening. I can't think of a better social entrepreneurship investment than coming alongside of ELLEN'S LIGHT as we share this story with the world.
Earlier today, I was with one of my favorite screen writers in all of Hollywood. Darrel Campbell has done so much by creating amazing stories with his life. His family are precious friends to ours. He has worked with authors, content creators and screenwriters and stands at the top of my personal list of real genius storytellers. He is an award winning writer, producer and director who is focused on making a difference.
When I shared with Darrel and his son Casey about Ellen's Light, a big smile came across their faces as we thought about helping Ellen see again. This is the total essence of this story and YOU can be a part to join us in doing the impossible for a woman who deserves so much more.
Let's make this dream a reality. Don't delay.
Love you guys,
