Help us get this life-changing film into more hands, now.

When people know, they do care

A prominent philanthropist once turned away our modest funding request saying, “No one knows, and no one cares,” as his response to Fred’s story and the message of the Native Two-Spirit tradition. But now that TWO SPIRITS has aired with such great success on PBS, many people do KNOW and do CARE. Now we can change even more hearts and minds.

Many of you have asked us (some demanded even) to work harder to get the film placed in more colleges and universities, communities of faith, and in the hands of more nonprofit organizations.

Contribute to this campaign so that more TWO SPIRITS DVD’s can be distributed to libraries, nonprofit organizations for use in their programs, tribal organizations, colleges and universities. We’ve got a long list of organizations standing by to receive copies provided by viewers. Thank you for expanding the reach of the film in this important way.

PBS stations that chose to air TWO SPIRITS covered about 90% of the country, but that leaves roughly 10 percent where the film is needed most and hasn’t been seen. We’re working quickly to raise $10,000 to target outreach and education efforts to place TWO SPIRITS where it can do great good.

Please help make this happen–a few dollars go a long way
