From Jen (who has ME) and Kiran, makers of the upcoming feature length film about those living with the invisible illness ME/CFS: Canary in a Coal Mine:

Thanks to that support, we’ve raised a tremendous fraction of our budget through the power of the crowd, far more than we ever imagined. At $159,417, and with one week left, we are in striking distance of our goal!
We just wanted to answer some questions about our budget. Even when we were aiming for our first $50,000, some wondered why we needed even that much to make a feature-length film. Why are we now shooting for four times that goal?
Today for your enjoyment, I’m re-posting an article that appeared on the ABC News page. It is a good read and very informative. The focus is on a woman named Jennifer Brea, an ME patient, and a Kickstarter campaign she has started in order to fund a Documentary about the disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Her campaign, called Canary in a Coal Mine, is doing very well. That site provides a lot more interesting information and is worth a read. Check it out here. This Documentary, and all the work Jennifer is doing, sounds like a very worthwhile project,. I humbly ask that anyone with the capability, to please support it. Even if it’s only $1. Also, please pass this Kickstarter information on to your friends. There’s only a couple weeks left, and they’re hoping to get as close to $200,000 as possible. Thank you very much. Please enjoy the article below.

So, to get back to the light note, I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite hobbies: crocheting. Continue reading
