Friends, we did it! After five days of fundraising, together we’ve raised enough to pull the trigger on producing the official Bobby McIlvaine Act video. Next week we head to Bob’s house for the shoot, thanks to your generous support.
We’re just $500 shy of the $5,000 that will cover all the costs of creating this eye-catching, heart-wrenching video — which we hope will be seen by up to 10 million people in the coming months. If this is the kind of project you believe in, please chip in this weekend
to help us reach the goal.
The plan for this one-of-a-kind piece is to combine Bob McIlvaine’s story of how his son Bobby was killed by a detonation in the lobby of the North Tower with jaw-dropping footage of the many eyewitnesses who described the massive explosions that took place in the towers that morning.
After enlightening millions of viewers to the truth of what really happened at the World Trade Center on 9/11, the video will close with a powerful call-to-action that moves hundreds of thousands of like-minded supporters to go to the Bobby McIlvaine webpage
. There, they’ll be able to take concrete action by calling on their members of Congress to open a new investigation.
If you’ve spent any time on Facebook recently, you’re probably familiar with the countless videos promoting various political and social causes. Some of these videos receive millions of views — sometimes even tens of millions of views — raising awareness far and wide at very little cost.
Two of our Facebook videos have eclipsed 1.5 million views, but our ambitious goal this time is to reach 10 million people. We believe we can meet that target by following Facebook best practices and by crafting a rousing message that everyone will want to share.
The last time we raised $5,000 for a video, we created the stunning short documentary Stand for the Truth
, featuring former NIST employee Peter Michael Ketcham. Please help us fund another top-notch production, so that together we can bring the Bobby McIlvaine Act to millions of people.
