Help Christophe Lafontant Finish His Documentary

No raffles, sweepstakes, giveaways, or returns on investment are offered in exchange for any donations made to this GoFundMe.

Hi my name is Christophe, and over the course of my life I’ve endured countless hardships, tragedies, and heartbreaks. However, through my faith, friends, and family I’ve been able to overcome them all and as a result evolve into a much more positive person.
 
 
With great help from friends and family, I’ve been able to tell my story in my book - 1 Man, 3 hearts, 9 Lives - and a short documentary - It Started With The Heart. My dream is to be able to tell my complete story in a feature length documentary and to be able to travel and share my story in person with those that need to hear it the most.
 
 
My hope in sharing my story is to reach people that may not believe that life gets better. I spent a lot of my life living based on what other people thought, and through all of my hardships, I’ve come to realize that you can’t live your life that way. You have to do the things that bring joy and positive meaning to your life, because your life is special. No matter what you’re going through, things do get better. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day. My hope is for people to learn about what I’ve been through - all of the medical procedures, sexual identity conflicts, drug issues, and family issues - and think, “If he can go through all of that, experience all of those things, and still be this positive, maybe I can too?”
 
I am hoping to raise enough money to complete the feature length documentary which will include:
• In-person interviews with as many people across the United States that have helped me throughout my life.
• Reenactments of certain major events throughout my life.
• A live motivational event where I can speak to a large audience to showcase in the film.
 
I am also hoping to be able to send my already completed short documentary and the potential feature documentary to film festivals around the globe to continue to reach more people and share my story. ***I am also hoping to secure distribution on a streaming platform.
 
I love all of the support that I have received from everyone over the years. And just the idea that people are reading about this campaign or learning about my story brings joy to my heart. I will be forever grateful for any amount I am able to raise to continue to share my story with those people that need to hear it the most. Thank you everyone!
