We've hit the halfway point! We can't thank everyone enough for the support they have shown so far. While we're thrilled to make it to this point in such a short period of time, we can't stop now!
Remember, spreading the word about HOPEraisr is arguably more important in the long-term than donating. So please, if you do nothing else today, share this with your social media network or forward alone to just one friend! You never know where that one referral may lead. We want HOPEraisr to change the world, but we need the world to know we exist!
HOPEraisr is a revolutionary new web series that is going
to change the world! We love helping people and are fascinated by random
of kindness, but we want to do more. Before each mini-documentary,
viewers will check in on our website and pay any amount of
money from $1 up. We will take that money and spend every last penny
completing random acts of kindness. Anything goes, from taking
a homeless woman on a shopping spree, to buying toys and delivering them
children in the hospital.
We are the only place
where you can see your "donations" being spent. When you donate to charities,
you don't know where your dollar is going. When you give us any amount of
money, you actually get to see it spent. And we guarantee that every dollar
that is sent to us will be spent in the episodes (more on that as you read on).
How does it work?
We will be setting up a website (and eventually an app) that
houses our videos. Each mini-documentary will take place on a bi-weekly
basis. Before each episode, our website will specify what the
subject matter is that we will be helping. In the beginning, we will
start with completely random acts of kindness. As we progress, we will
specify a certain topic, ranging from animals to sick children. If
you're interested in contributing
to that topic, you will be able to easily donate any amount of money to
We will live-track funds as they come through on our site, and then
close it at the end of the two week period before we shoot the video.
Once closed, we take all of the funds and film our episode, and get
it edited and beautiful for the next day. We will use every dollar that is sent to us to generate kicked-up acts of kindness to total strangers and those in need.
We will bring on a volunteer who will oversee our expenses.
Our GUARANTEE is that we will spend 100% of the money that comes in to us. We
are not doing this to get rich, we are doing this to change the world.
Our website is secure, and your payment information is
We understand that you don't need money to perform random acts of
kindness, but we also understand the power of money and gifts. By
spending money, we can make a huge difference in the lives of so many
people. Between mini-documentaries, we will be shooting other videos as
well as "extras." We will undoubtedly shoot videos of acts of kindness
that cost no money at all for everyone to see how they can make a
difference every day!
We are not supporting any specific cause, but we are raising hope throughout the world. The
more money we get, the better the episodes, and the more good we can do!
Why do you need money to start this?
In an ideal world, we would ask nothing from you. But we
need your help!
We want this to be professionally done and visually
appealing. We're not interested in creating homemade videos and putting them on
YouTube- we want this to be watched and enjoyed by millions.
All we need is
We have a ton of film experience, but no equipment. We need
to buy a professional camera, some microphones, software, and pay for website
development (we have the design covered, but our donation system needs to be
If we raise more than $5,500, we would be ecstatic! Extra
funds raised will go towards travel expenses, so we can broaden our reach. As
it currently stands, we will be limited to parts of the Northeast. Our plan is to expand
and be able to help people nationwide! Your contributions will
help us get through season one, which we plan to take us into the New
Year. Since it is bi-weekly, we anticipate 4 months (starting this
September), and 8 episodes in our first season. If we have a successful
first season, we will then be able to take this project even further and
do even more amazing things- more equipment with more people involved
and many more locations! But for now, we want to focus on getting this
off the ground, and that's why we need you!
