Expecting Sunshine’s crowdfunding campaign ends Monday, December 14, 2015 at 11:59 pm.

In honour of the season, we have added a new batch of holiday perks to thank our contributors!

A “Perk” is a gift from Alexis Marie Chute and her film crew to thank you for contributing to the documentary.

The holidays are a great time to give. Sometimes contributing in support of something you believe in is even more valuable than buying more stuff. Please consider the perks below. Maybe they belong beneath your Christmas tree this year.

Click the orange buttons below to claim the perk you want. 

Alternate ways of contributing can be found at the bottom of this post. 

Happy Holidays!

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE:


  • Visit our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign by clicking here: http://igg.me/at/expectingsun
  • On our campaign page you can read the story, watch the trailer and see how much has been donated.
  • There are two ways to contribute:  
  • (1) Along the right side of the screen there is a list of “Perks,” which are ways we thank you for supporting the film. You can click on the perk you want, it will open up with more info, and you will be given payment options (credit card or paypal).
  • (2) The other way, again on the right side of the screen but this time at the very top, you will see a white box that says “Your contribution” with a pink button below it that says “Contribute now.” There you can enter any amount (with this option you will not receive a “perk”). A new window will open and you can choose your payment method.

Sincerest thanks and gratitude from Alexis Marie Chute and the entire crew of Expecting Sunshine.
