Great documentaries enrich the lives of individuals and communities. They have a unique ability to engage and connect people, transform communities, and improve societies.  During the last six years David Vaisbord has been successful in serving as a voice for his local community. Now he wants to complete the feature documentary that tells this story to a wider audience.

Documentary filmmaking is an expensive endeavor, and because Canadian broadcasters rarely support independent documentaries any longer, we have turned to other fundraising techniques such as crowd-sourcing. Crowd-sourcing campaigns are very labour intensive, but they do have the ability to reach their intended audience.
