"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning". These are the famous words of Frederick Douglass who also stated and believed that "a man who will not fight for himself, when he HAS the means of doing so, is not worth being fought for by others".
These words ring very true as we approach the depths of this project. Our fathers are so worn down, that they cannot muster the strength to fight alongside in this battle of child support. After all, when have they seen progress? "Why to get your hopes up only to be let down," says Mr. James during one of our recent podcasts.
Realizing that the topic of helping fathers would be hard, we are dedicated nonetheless to the fight. We will continue to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. We will continue to be the voice for those who have lost theirs. We have increased the education and awareness through our online podcast dedicated to helping fathers increase child support payments.

Our upcoming animation project is still looking for an animator to complete the animation of the stage play. We believe this format is critical in bringing about awareness and education on child support matters and policies that can exacerbate the one-sided criminal justice system.
We thank you for your support and look forward to producing a finished product with your generous support.
