Don't be a "Dream Assassin "

Below is an email from a former collegian, fellow Alpha Chi Omega, and Florida State University Graduate. Upon graduation she moved to LA,where she is working for Ellen Degeneres as a writer. She is pursing her dream and is trying to sell a TV series with her writing partner, Nathan.  I received the below email from her and just had to share with the "blog world" as you never know who is going to read/help.

They are of course trying to raise money and if you are so inclined - please donate. Any amount is great - they need to raise $20,000 and it all adds up. If you are not - and trust me this is no hard sell and I get that funds are tight for EVERYONE...can you kindly move this along to others who support young dreams?

 As many of you know, I spent several months last spring/summer writing a tv pilot with my writing partner, Nathan Gotsch, based on some spoof campaign ads he made in 2006 that wound up on MSNBC and "endorsed" by Keith Olbermann. (For the full story and to see the ads, go here.) We're in the process of turning our script into a real live tv show and are going to shoot it in two weeks.

That's where you, my amazing friends and family, come in. We've been fortunate to get a lot of greatly reduced and free man-power thanks to our friends and contacts out here (both professionally and through Nathan's years in film school at USC) , but still need help to turn it into a reality. I'm not asking for money (though if you can donate, that's fantastic) -- but I am asking you to help spread the word.  Please go to the site, check our out our pilot, and if you like what you see and want to help us succeed, pass it along to other people you know -- in the real world and on the internet.

And now: a few links to help you in the right direction:

The official website:
And our Kickstarter page.

Thanks in advance for all of your help, and thank you for all of your love and support - without it, I wouldn't be out here pursuing my dream and getting to do what I love.
