Turn Braeden into a Ghostbuster!

Who ya gonna call? Braeden!
The For The Win Project is proud to announce that our latest Hero is a ghostbusting 7 year old named Braeden! 

We're raising $6,000 to provide this special boy with one of our now famous experiences. Braeden suffers from a birth defect known as Bronchial Malacia. The effect of this condition on Braeden's respiratory system and in general limits Braeden's ability to have a "normal" childhood. Braeden has channeled that negative into a positive with a love for Ghostbusters. Beginning at age 3 Braeden became obsessed with the ghostbusting band of heroes and his admiration is still stronger than ever. Recently Braeden was paid a visit by the Iowa Ghostbusters and received his first toy proton-pack. 

Braeden's met some Ghostbusters, but now it's time to officially be a Ghostbuster! With the support of Sony Pictures' Ghost Corps, we have a day like no other planned for Braeden. The $6,000 raised will be used to fly Braeden and his parents to Hollywood California. Once here they will get a private studio tour of Sony Pictures where Braeden will get a special look at original props and costumes from the movies. He'll step inside the one and only Ecto 1 Ghostbusters vehicle as well. But most importantly, Braeden will suit up and gear up as a Ghostbuster for his one-of-a-kind celebrity photo and video shoot. He'll then be transformed into a real Ghostbuster in his own Ghostbuster movie poster and trailer! There are other surprises in store that we're excited to unveil to Braeden, his family, and the amazing individuals that donate to Braeden's special day!

Braeden's For The Win Project experience is set to take place at the end of August 2016. With your support, we can continue our mission of turning heroes into Heroes. It's very important for us to remind these children that they're incredible and heroic for the strength and determination they show each and every day. The experience we give them acts as a reminder of that. It increases hope, builds self esteem, and acts as a more accurate mirror for who these kids really are...Heroes!

Thanks you for your interest and investment in Braeden's deserving experience. And stay tuned to watch the action unfold and payoff as The For The Win Project turns Braeden into a Ghostbuster!

The For The Win Project gives children in special circumstances the chance to be their favorite heroes in their very own one-of-a-kind movie poster and movie trailer. We create a new sense of hope, motivation, and give a self-esteem boost for each child by doing this.
Transforming them into heroes will be influential in raising both awareness and funds for whatever they may be up against as well.

All donations to The For The Win Project are tax deductible. Please e-mail info@forthewinproject.org if you need any additional receipt of donation.
