Hello supporters! We have reached the point in which we have stopped work on our next documentary film because we have run out of funding for the project. The Lost Generation of Sudan film is currently 83% funded, so we are almost there, but we still need funds to help pay for all kinds of fun stuff like licensed music, trailer development, sound design, color correction, distribution and promotional costs for official screenings, and web distribution fees.

The good news is that we are not giving up. Our media team has created an exciting opportunity to crowdfund the remaining $5,000 we need to complete this film! It is pretty simple, but we think you are going to love it.

We’re looking for exactly 100 people to give $25 each to this important project and then tell the world they are one of the investors behind the film. Interested in joining? Here’s the only two steps you need to take.

MAKE YOUR $25 INVESTMENT =>

and then tell the world you are an investor in this important project. Sign up below.

On September 30, we will all tell the world that we funded half of the remaining budget needed and ask our friends to take care of the rest. Together we can get back on track and have an incredible documentary film for you this winter. Let’s show the world why our movement is the best!

We always knew how amazing Adam was, but we never fully understood how many people he positively impacted. When we posted Adam’s story to our website, it was shared and reposted by hundreds of people who loved Adam dearly. In fact, it became the most-read blog entry we’ve ever posted.

Many of you have asked to donate to our work in honor of Adam. After speaking with members of Adam’s family, we have opened up this page as a way for you to do that. Gifts made in honor of Adam through this page will go to support teachers who have fled from the war in Sudan and desire to educate the 25,000+ children who have fled to refugee camps in South Sudan. Adam’s legacy can now help impact an entire generation: http://www.stayclassy.org/adamsstory

We do ask that when you give you select the “In Memory of Option” and let us know how Adam impacted your life. We would love to hear and share with one another how he impacted each of us.

From all of us here at OBS, we bid farewell to our friend, our brother, and our hero. Adam, we will keep working hard to make the world a better place for everyone.
