Flotsam and Jetsam
posted on: 19.5.13
Today is the final day of the Dancing Backwards fundraising campaign, and unfortunately there is a LONG way to go. With a goal of $45k, we have only raised around $5k with online and offline donations.
The campaign ends at midnight tonight. Won't you consider a contribution?

This innovative educational program about women in politics has a lot of support from students, parents, and educators, but fundraising has been a difficult slog in the past month. What with internet/media distractions like the Boston bombing and the BC provincial election, we haven't been able to get the word to as many people as we would have liked.
What's in it for me? Well, I am a video editor on the project. I created the crowdfunding video (above), and if enough funds are raised I'll be hired as an ongoing editor on the Dancing Backwards project. My role will be to create short videos of student presentations that will appear on the Dancing Backwards website - an online library of student-created content about Canada's historical female politicians.
If you haven't already done so, please watch the video and contribute online before MIDNIGHT tonight.
