Only 1 Day Left to Help Get SCD in the Movies

by Jordan Reasoner

Last week we interviewed Reid Kimball in a podcast about his latest project, Wanted: Crohn’s End.  He’s putting together one of the first concrete documentaries about digestive disease and alternative methods of healing that are out there.  Most importantly, he’s using SCD as one of those methods.  This documentary is going to help advance the digestive disease community as a whole and raise awareness about some of things people are already doing to get better.  We love his project because he’s capturing the trails blazed by those of us that are getting better, and plowing a wider path for others to follow… it’s going to help a lot of people!

Here’s some of his goals with the film:

– Document stories of triumph over the disease.
– Create more awareness for safer, cheaper, more effective alternative treatments.
– Change how Crohn’s and Colitis are treated by conventional healthcare so we have more cases of triumph than suffering.
– Spark a national movement emphasizing patient’s right to be made aware of and to choose from all available treatments.

Here’s a video trailer to learn more about the film and his mission:

So here’s the deal:

He has a “kickstarter” project started to help fund his documentary, which is deep in the filming process.  Here’s how a “kickstarter” project works:

1) He sets a drop dead funding date and a funding amount

2) People pledge whatever they can afford to help the project

3) If he reaches his funding amount by the drop dead date the project gets funded, if not, he doesn’t get a dime and all the pledges are returned to the people!

His funding goal is $10,550.

The drop dead date for his project is Wednesday Dec 8, 3:00am EST.

And as of this moment, his pledges are up to $8,451…

That Means…

We have less than 48 hours left to help him get $2,100 more in pledges or the film will get $0 funding!
