Keep on Trucking + Film Making

Hi I am James and I need your help

8 years ago I quit my job and spent all my savings on film making equipment in an endeavour to help humanity tell a better story for itself.

In that time I have produced numerous films for various charities and groups doing good work, including The Kindness Offensive, the worlds largest performer of random acts of kindness, I was instrumental in launching the worlds first Museum of Happiness and maximizing its impact, I helped Off Grid festival build their community and secure a new site to grow. Iv'e worked with climate activists, political change makers, I supported vegan activists, immigration activists, youth development projects, rehabilitation programs, mental health charities and produced many moving films for my project What's Your Story, all in a bid to make the world a better place by telling stories that inspire people to want to live more fulfilling lives.

I truly belief that the stories we share with each other shape our lives and having worked in TV news for 5 years I know the power of a story and want to tell one with a more unified happy ending.

More recently after walking 900 miles across Spain for charity in memory of my bother who died when I was 18, I decided to take my work one step further and produce a feature film of my whats your story project. I took out a loan, bought a van, turned it into a campervan and set out to travel the uk in search of more stories to tell but earlier this year my van decided to break and break big time which means I am no longer in a position to help anyone, which Is why I need your help.

Luckily I have a seriously great mate called Brian who is helping me (or am I helping him) fix my van for free but sadly car parts and the people that manufacture them are not into sharing as much as I am and they require large sums of cash for the parts I need.

So for the first time in my life having never taken a penny from the state I am in need of your help,

I need £1500 for parts to fix my van to get me back on the road to tell stories with film that inspire people to live better lives more in harmony with nature, their communities and them selves.

I know times are hard and I know money is tight but I would not be asking if I did not fully believe that what I offer the world had true value to humanity.

Please give what you can and help me to continue to help the many organisations and people that I do.
