Hi. My name is Mari. You probably know me as Little Miss Flint. Im 11 years old and from Flint, Michigan. Im an  activist and a proud Flint Kid. 


Last year in 2018 we were able to successfully do the #BlackPantherChallenge and the #WrinkleInTimeChallenge and we did a screening for the Incredibles 2. All for #FlintKids to be able to see themselves represented on screen as the heroes, as most black kids don't get to see themselves as the hero in the movies. This year we successfully screened Captain Marvel, letting girls of all ages see that the strongest hero in the marvel universe is a girl and that girls can do anything.  At every screening we were able to give out books, and tons of related merchandise and toys. 


Now I want to start a new challenge to screen the live action Lion King film. I want to bring the magic of Disney to Flint Kids once again and in true "Mari" tradition put a little twist to it. I want to  make this a "red carpet" event for the kids and bring some of the fun of Hollywood directly to Flint. I also want to make sure every kid gets a Lion King book and a toy or collectible. 

Funds from this gofundme will 
-Pay for the screening 
-Cover concessions (A beverage and popcorn)
-Cover red carpet set up 
-Purchase Lion King Books
-Purchase Lion King Toys and Collectibles 
(Any remaining funds will go towards our Back to School campaign)
