“I got 5 on it” campaign

Greeting from the Eye of the Hawk production crew,
The Supercharged  Documentary would like your support. Today we  launched our “I got five on it” fundraising campaign to get 2000 people to donate $5 to raise a total of $10,000. This budget is central to completing the film, which began production in January 2008.
 Although we still have a way to go, we are confident that we will get the $20,000 to finish it. We believe in the purpose of this historic film and are confident others will share in its vision.  Tim Brauch continues to be a positive role model within the skateboarding community and our hope is to reach way beyond with his documentary.
We encourage you, your family and friends to make a small donation to cover the costs of the DVD duplication. After the film is complete all the proceeds will be donated to the Tim Brauch Foundation helping young children fulfill their skateboarding dreams and much more. Together, we can make this film happen!
Visit  Kickstarter  today to donate.
Keep in the know on the film here timbrauch.blogspot.com
Please forward this email to all your friends and family. Also, remember to invite folks to this Tuesday’s photo show and fundraiser event in San Jose.

Much Thanks,

-Pete Koff & the Eye of the Hawk Production Crew
