    Happy Birthday Gail!
    Couldn’t let the day pass without sending you our best. Hope the day was wonderful and that your year ahead is filled with happiness, success love and good health! Can’t wait to see you both.
    Love,

    • Hi Jeanine,

      Thanks for the wishes and the very nice gift – you shouldn’t have.

      Erin and I hope to see you all in early September when we get back.

      Love
      Gail

    Hello Gail

    Quick question for you. Is there a way we can donate to your project other than through PayPal?

    Many thanks.

  3. Lorraine,

    The best way now to support the project is to do so through Kickstarter by clicking on the link below.

    http://kck.st/cTApuP

    We will use those funds to hire a professional editor to put the polish on the film.

    Thank you.

    Gail

    Hi,

    If you want someone with a huge audience to spread the word about the film, try to get the support of Philip Bloom. He will probably be interested in you since you shot the film with DSLRs, and that’s exactly his field. Look for his profile on Facebook, he was a tremendously big audience.

    Good luck.

  6. Dear Gail & Erin,

    Congratulations on the progress of your film! I love your theme about the power of the individual to make a difference and I’m happy to do a small part to spread the word.

    I’m involved with a non-profit, New Momentum for Human Unity. Each week, I send an email to our list with two topics. One topic is a weekly reflection to increase awareness of our interconnections. The other is an introduction to an inspiring individual, group or project … and today, we featured Opening Our Eyes.

    In 2009, we released an award-winning feature-length documentary film, City of the Dawn, (about Auroville, India, a community where 2,000 individuals from 40 nations are demonstrating how we can live together in harmony), so I can truly appreciate the magnitude of your accomplishment.

    Best wishes for your film to inspire many, many people around the world to make a difference in their own unique way.

    Warm regards,

    Dexanne Card
    Executive Director
    New Momentum for Human Unity
