Help pay distribution costs of pro-adoption film

Donation protected
Thanks to all of you, we are excited to announce the completion of “LUCHA & the EKEKO”—our short, inspirational, animated film that helps strengthen positive narratives around fostering and adoption while supporting immigration advocacy initiatives.

This award-winning film tells the heartwarming story of a woman who risks everything to reunite an undocumented migrant girl with her mother and, in the process, finds space in her own heart … to become one.


In solidarity with advocates for foster care and adoption, we hope to strengthen positive narratives around and to highlight the importance of foster care and adoption as ways to provide loving, permanent homes for some of the most vulnerable children.

In addition, by interweaving themes of immigration and motherhood, we believe our short video can also serve as a tool—supporting legal professionals, educators, and social workers in their work to raise awareness of the lingering and devastating consequences that the Zero-Tolerance “family separation” policy has caused mothers, children and families.


LUCHA & the EKEKO” is wrapping up festival screenings where it has so far won ten awards!

As it continues to receive favorable reviews and audience response, we're quickly preparing for the next step… bringing it to a wider audience via broadcast or streaming services.


Now that “LUCHA & the EKEKO” is doing well, we can’t wait to share it.

However, before submitting to TV/cable broadcasters and streaming platforms, we have to prepare several deliverables that all the major platforms will require. The deliverables we must provide include the following items:

•     Update/polish film poster & key art
•     Create new trailer
•     Promotional collateral
•     Closed captioning / subtitling
•     Legal fees
•     Errors & Omission insurance
•     Digital video masters/format conversions
•     Music & Effects masters

We estimate that it could take $14,385.00 to cover these upcoming expenses

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support!
