We Grew Wings: June 2012 Update


JUNE is the month we have all been waiting for, and the World Premiere of We Grew Wings is coming up fast.


It is not too late to get your name in the credits! This is the last chance to help support the project financially. Be a part of making this dream come true, and consider a donation. We have raised $150,000 so far, but need to reach $200,000 to cover the final payments to filmmakers and the licensing fees for the incredible event footage and stills that we are using. 157 individuals, 4 foundations, and 1 company have helped us get to where we are now. So spread the word. Tell your friends, family, and co-workers. Email, Facebook, Tweet, and do whatever else you can to let people know about the project and the chance to make a tax-deductible donation on our website or by check. Checks can be made out to IDA, with “We Grew Wings” in the memo line, and sent to Ellen Devlin at 6254 NW Cornell Road, Portland, OR 97210.

You can also help us by PRE-ORDERING YOUR DVD today on our website.
