Rough cut, fine cut, and an upcoming summer dish

Dear supporter of women storytellers and advocates,

We at p.h. balanced films have not one but two incredibly exciting updates about our plans for 2019! We've been busy behind-the-scenes with a lot of conversation and coordination, a dash of international travel, and a generous helping of proposal writing. 

We want to keep you in the loop on a regular basis, but as this quarterly deadline arrived, one of our ideas is still in its fine cut phase while the other is a solid rough cut. Just like you can't rush Sauternes custard (or so I'm told - see image attached), we don't want to rush in sharing until we have all of the important details worked out.

So stay tuned... next quarter, we'll have not one but two updates to share!

Thank you for your support. Without your help, neither of these projects underway would be possible.  

Thanks, too, for your patience - both with the wait for the news and with me for shamelessly mixing cooking and filming metaphors.

With gratitude, 

Piper

An unusual update in advance of Giving Tuesday...

Dear supporter of Reel Women Real Change

You are no doubt receiving numerous Giving Tuesday requests right now. There are countless important causes around the world and hundreds of thousdands of organizations - and people - with critical needs.

This message is to ask you to give to them - not to us.

Yes, you read that correctly:  

We are not asking for donations for the remainder of this year. 

You may recall that our Reel Women Real Change program was selected to be GlobalGiving's Project of the Month for September, meaning we received the share of funds donated by Project of the Month donors in that month. 

That honor provided us enough support to meet our current financial needs for 2019 programming. 

Which is why all of us at p.h. balanced films want to say:
 

We are deeply grateful to you for making our impact possible.

and 

In your 2018 charitable giving, please support other worthy causes.


Planning for our 2019 programs - both in the US and abroad - is underway. We look forward to sharing exciting news with you soon - including in our next GlobalGiving update.

For now, we wish a joyful and safe holiday season to you, your family, and your community - both around your town and around this amazing planet we all share.

With gratitude,
Piper Hendricks
Founder of p.h. balanced films

 

(If you receive our newsletter, you already heard that we aren't asking for more donations in 2018 - but I'm delighted to share that we've made more progress on 2019 plans even since I wrote to you last week!)
