s6ns 20/20 VISION PARTNER

I am looking for 5,000 people to sow $20 and 20 minutes towards making the s6ns vision a reality on television.  We understand that some may be able to sow more and others less; regardless of the monetary amount all is greatly appreciated.  We also realize that there may be some who aren’t able to sow any monetary seed, but still desire to help.  We totally understand and here’s how you help.  Did you know that your time is also seed? The second part of the 20/20 vision is sowing 20 minutes of your time to spread the word about our GOFUND ME Campaign.   We are asking that you sow 20 minutes of your valuable time to email, text, tweet, or facebook our campaign to your family and friends.  We have sent over 1000 emails about our campaign.  Below is a sample email that one of our sowers (Bill) sent out to 100 of his family and friends.   Your time is just as valuable as your money.  Thanks for the support!!!!!  Ask your family and friends to sow both twenty ($20) dollars and twenty (20) minutes to help us reach our goal.    This is good soil to bless families everywhere with a positive television show that’s worth watching!!!!


THE VISION


After appearing on Oprah’s Lifeclass addressing “Fatherless Sons”, Minister Karlton Harris was motivated to create the s6ns (6 Sons) Family Reality Show. Karlton Harris grew up as a fatherless son and knows very well the daily challenges that children like himself face.  Today as a father of 6 sons and  a mentor to formerly incarcerated fathers, Karlton's heart desire is to help reconcile and transform families through television. 

s6ns is a family friendly reality television show where every episode demonstrates the importance of fathers being active in their children’s lives. The show highlights Karlton Harris as an author, motivational speaker, and correctional facility volunteer; while simultaneously demonstrating his balance of being an active father.

The show is designed to engage fathers in parent teacher conferences, quality time, as well as getting them involved in every aspect of their children's lives. 

USE OF FUNDS

The funds raised will be used for the production (70%) of season 2, airtime (20 %), and marketing (10%) of the show.  Karlton has pitched s6ns to various networks but has been asked to compromise his God given vision and change the show for the worse and/or told s6ns is too "good" for television.  Of course Karlton is not willing to compromise for any dollar amount and he knows that his show is just what our youth and families need to see today; therefore the s6ns show will continue to be independently and executive produced by himself, with your help of course.  

HOUSTON

s6ns is scheduled to air in January 2016 on Houston's Kube Network every Saturday from 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm.   The Kube Network will provide nielsen ratings of viewership.  Karlton's goal is to highly promote the show in the Houston market to boost family viewership. Karlton is hopeful that high local viewership will generate local sponsorship interest.  s6ns will give families a positive show that they can watch together.  

OTHER LOCAL SYNDICATED MARKETS

s6ns will also air in other local markets such as Chicago on Cable25 and Atlanta on AIBTV.  Karlton is also in discussions with other local markets where s6ns will broadcast on local television to give families who do not subcribe to cable/satellite television.   The vision is to reach families everywhere and Karlton realizes the vehicle to achieve this goal is through broadband and local distribution channels.

BROADBAND - GLOBAL

Local viewers will be able to invite their family and friends across the globe to tune-in every Saturday, beginning in January at 7:30 pm (CST) where the newest episode of s6ns will be made available on demand via the s6ns youtube channel.   After the production of season 2 the show will be pitched to various broadband distributors such as  Netflix, Hulu, and Apple T.V.   Karlton have a worldwide (broadband) vision for the show. 

BEYOND ENTERTAINMENT

s6ns is on a mission to eradicate fatherless homes. Because of this, Karlton has partnered with the city of Houston's My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Movement and Community Re-entry Network.  Episodes of the s6ns show will demonstrate the importance of giving formerly incarcerated individuals a second chance while simultaneously highlighting the difficulties they encounter when attempting to successfully reintegrate. The struggles,  the disappointments, the set-backs, and successes will all be displayed.  

Karlton will be speaking in High Schools through the MBK Movement to help encourage African American Males to read and apply themselves by using his life story as a testimony.  s6ns is designed to mentor the at-risk youth, the formerly incarcerated father, the single mother, and the family as a whole.

Karla, Karlton's wife, will be demonstrating to formerly incarcerated mothers how to save money by couponing so they can spend more quality time with their children.

BILL'S EMAIL 

Friends;

I want to introduce you to another friend of mine KARLTON HARRIS. He is an accomplished author and motivational speaker. His life is all about doing good for others. His two primary messages:

1. step up to your fatherhood obligations: be there for your kids and then he shows how. For many good reasons, Karlton was awarded FATHER OF THE YEAR this past year. If you watch his season 1 reality TV program S6ONS on YouTube, you'll understand why.

2. positive change is definitely doable: his books and keynote speeches have enhanced lives and our world. His own life story is a testimony for positive change.

Most of what Karlton does is volunteered. His second season of S6ONS is now in production and the program is now in a critical funding phase.

 Yesterday, he launched a GoFundMe and I encourage you will support him.

 In addition to modest individual contributions, the S6ONS program is also in search of corporate and foundation support.

 Please consider helping and referring him to corporate and foundation possibilities.

As you may already know, today is #GivingTuesday. Giving is a very important aspect of my life. I love to give and often spend my time volunteering to help someone succeed. Rather it be helping a prisoner transform his thinking, mentoring a troubled fatherless teen, or assisting an aspiring author publish their literary work, I believe in sowing my time, talent, and money into people. I’m a firm believer that what you make happen for others God will make happen for you.When it comes to sowing and reaping, both seed and soil are necessary. Today I may need your seed, but tomorrow you may need my soil. What good is seed without soil? What good is soil without seed?Alone they are useless, but together they are fruitful. My Pastor David Allen, Jr. once told the congregation about a time he was led to financially sow into a certain individual. He said that upon offering his seed (money), the individual expressed to him they weren’t in need of his seed andhis response was, “But, I’m in need of your soil!”
Before you make your spiritual transaction of sowing on today, I pray that you would consider our “6 Sons, Raising Fathers” campaign. Where we believe people are the best investment of our time, talent, and money. Our ministry is to reduce America’s number one epidemicof fatherless homes through television. We have already made ready the good soil now all we need is for you to sow a seed. The harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few. Have you desired to watch something positive on television, only to surf channels to find the same ole, womanizing, violent, and degrading television shows? Guess what? So have we, and now we’ve decided to do something about it and we need your help! How may you help? I’m glad you asked. You may assist us by donating a minimum of $20 and 20 minutes towards our efforts. “Why twenty minutes?”We need you to donate twenty minutes of your time to share our campaign. This would create a grassroots movement and make our show go viral. Your time is just as valuable as your money.
Just like you would refer a good movie or restaurant to a friend, we ask that you refer our “6 Sons, Raising Fathers” Campaign. You can view all eight (8) of our episodes directly from the bottom of our campaign located at www.gofundme.com/6sons. Please understand, we're not just gathering donations, we're gathering people. Relying on each other to own this campaign is the only viable way we can truly grow our grassroots movement. Taking ownership of the campaign is an essential part of the experience, right alongside making phone calls, sending e-mails, posting on social media, and requesting your network of family, friends, and neighbors to join us as we change lives. We didn't get this far by doing things the usual way. We didn’t sell out and change our message to get a contract with the large television networks. We are committed to staying true to ourselves and not compromise our message of Faith, Freedom, and Fatherhood. Our show is a resource to empower the single mother, motivate the discouraged father, and uplift the family unit as a whole.
We’ve been told that our show is “too positive” for television; neverthelesswe aren’t listening! We knowthatthere are millions of parents who desire a positive show to enjoy with their children. We're committed to doing this the correct way -- with a whole lot of people like you taking the lead with us. We’ve learned if a lot of people would give a little then no one person would have to give a lot.It's this kind of commitment that creates a grassroots campaign capable of changing televisionand rebuilding families.
For your online donation please go to https://gofundme.com/6sons. Feel free to share our campaign with everyone you know by forwarding this email and encouraging them to support our campaign. To donate by mail, send contributions to Karlton Harris Ministries, P.O. Box 6638, Katy, TX 77491.
