Awesome new documentary about people with disabilities and attendants
Hello I'm making a documentary exploring the relationship between people with disabilities and their aides. I think I have kind of a unique view on how aides should be hired and directed as employees. Since I spend so much time with my own aides I want us to become friends but also maintain the balance of a professional relationship. The most important thing is mutual respect which many people with disabilities and their aides don't have. This documentary will feature an awesome comedian and playwright who will talk about her own experiences, my own exploration of my relationships with my aides, and you will hear from the people who have worked for us.
The footage is being shot as we speak. The next phase of this project is editing, creating DVDs, and getting the word out. I want this documentary to look and be professional, so I will be hiring a professional editor and creating professional DVDs. Unfortunately, this costs money! So I set up a Kickstart for this project. For people who don't know, Kickstart is a website that helps people fund raise - the trick is, you have to reach your goal to get the money. My goal is $2,000 and I have 22 days left to reach my goal. We have $1,325 currently. Please spread the word or donate! http://aidedoc.weebly.com/ or firstname.lastname@example.org
