Rock the Vote!

What better way to make your vote count in an election year than to vote for something incredibly meaningful like a locally produced film sharing great news out of Africa?

 

Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day. You may have noticed a number of your favorite musicians & celebs posting on their social media channels encouraging folks like us to register and get out the vote come November.

There is another vote going on right now, as well - it’s a voter-driven grant contest and our film is up for winning a much needed $50,000 grant if we get the most votes. (the Producer spent her childhood right off of Riverside Drive.)

We are competing against 29 other causes, so we need your vote to help us win. It only takes a couple seconds and every vote puts us one step closer to making a difference.

About the Contest: The GIVE is Cultivate Wine’s program of donating 10% of their sales to non-profits selected by voters -- non-profits apply on the website, and then YOU vote. The cause with the most votes will get $50,000 and the 5 runners-up each receive $10,000. Here is a video explaining how it works: http://youtu.be/hv-jx3zBx4g

It takes a ton of money to produce a documentary feature film so every little bit helps... and this $50,000 would be a HUGE boost in reaching our almost half a million budget needed to complete the film. We are donating 100% of film profits directly to the African Children's Choir for their relief and development work on the ground in seven African nations. 

What better way to make your vote count in an election year than to vote for something incredibly meaningful like a locally produced film sharing great news out of Africa?

So, get a little practice for election season and start practicing your right & responsibility to vote early (and often). You can vote for us to win once a day through 10/31. 

We’ve made it so easy to remember to vote too! You can sign up for our fun, friendly little email reminders HERE

Plus, we’ve made it super easy to spread the love! Here is a sample post you can share:
