Hello, my name is Ty
Manns, Major, US Army, retired. Did you know that currently, more than
122,000 men, women and children are awaiting organ transplants in the United
States? Or that approximately 75,958 of those waiting are Multicultural
Patients? And nearly 40% of those currently awaiting kidney transplants
are minorities, mostly African-Americans? Or, sadly nearly 18 people die each
day while waiting for a lifesaving transplant.
Why is this
The above statistics speak volumes to why this
campaign is important to me and I pray, equally important to each of
you. Every day, somewhere worldwide lives are lost and lives are
saved, but sadly, within the multi-cultural and African-Americans ethnic groups,
the chasm between registered donors and the need continues to widen.
But, with your help, with your commitment and passion, we can take
gigantic steps towards creating a much needed shift in the paradigm.
Why we need
& what you get?
Funded and supported by Donate Life
America, 4R Entertainment, in association with Servant Warrior® Ministries, has completed principle-production on THE WISH. The film has been edited and now is
ready for its worldwide debut. Somewhere, someone will see their story in this
film. Somewhere this film will inspire hope. Somewhere this film will inspire
faith. Somewhere this film will inspire generosity.
Your commitment and thoughtful, tax deductible gifts allows us to
increase the film's marketing reach into churches, schools and universities
across the nation and increase the film festival entry numbers from 5 to nearly 40. And, with your generous gifts, you will
receive autographed copies of the DVD, pictures, the script and more. Finally,
regardless if we reach our goal or not, 100% of the donated funds will go
towards the film and our marketing efforts.
of Your Support
The impact of your support allows THE WISH to ENTERTAIN the viewing audience, REACH minority
communities (specifically African-American, Hispanic & Multicultural
communities), INFORM of
the need for increased minority organ & tissue donors, EDUCATE the viewing audience regarding the
facts vs the Myths organ & tissue donor registration, INSPIRE calls-to-action, specifically within
the minority communities and CREATE a
new generation of minority/multicultural organ & tissue donors.
Because principle-production is complete and the
film is ready for marketing, the risk of your gifts are low. The film is ready for release and we need
your help. With your help we will have the funds needed to market
and supply THE WISH to a number of churches, schools and
universities. Our challenge is simple… if we can simply increase
our marketing funds, we can print more copies of the DVD, expose the film to a
wide range of family and faith-based film festivals and expand the marketing
strategy into churches, schools and universities.
Other Ways You Can
Yes, we would love to have your financial donations and
support, but most importantly we would love for you to visit www.donatelife.net and register to become organ &
tissue donors, or contact your local transplant center to learn how to become a
living donor. THE WISH is a film. It will entertain,
educate and inspire, but only you can help save lives by becoming a living
donor, or a registered organ & tissue donor. Please visit www.donatelife.net/thewish to learn more about the film and how
you can become a registered donor.
