Last week we received numbers for where our show is on Amazon Prime. We are about halfway to our first viewership goal. We also received news that we will have distribution on yet another platform called Tubi. I've been running like a chicken with my head cut off because it's the end of the school year and I'm doing everything-filming, editing, marketing, being a mom to kids stressed about end of the year work!
Derek works a full time job, he's also working on all the insurance issues with the crash damage on the Porsche to get it ready for Portland, listening to me freak out about being overwhelmed and all I have to do, taking on some of my work because I'm overwhelmed, and is working on sponsorships to complete our season and get ahead of next racing season. We also have a charity project that we are very passionate about that we are trying to put together!
So, for today, I'm going to keep it short and sweet so I can get back to preparing more cool content for you. Here are three things you can do to help us:
1. Help us find people who believe in supporting kids dreams! We are partnered with Linda Solomon, an award winning photo journalist from Michigan who has a program called Pictures of Hope. This program will send one very lucky child to college but more than that will encourage a group of children with larger than normal life challenges to dream, photograph things that inspire them, and to instill in them that their the belief that their dreams matter. For more information check out the Pictures of Hope website and please let us know if you have interest in partnering with us in the program. We will also be filming the transformative stories as we go.
2. Check out our events page and join us in Portland! We have links to tickets sales for our home race July 14 & 15th. Over the next month we will be adding some other cool events that you won't want to miss!
3. Share us on your social media platforms and with your friends and family! Now is the time as we are preparing Season 2 for launch in the Fall.
BONUS: Pray for us! haha We'll need it with all we've taken on! We really want to inspire you to live your dreams. We'd like to be more present with you and our work, so prayers for the right support and help to get caught up would be most appreciated!
We are asking for help. Currently we are in the process of hiring some support and looking for interns to help with the film production and marketing. It's all a process and we are taking it one step at a time.
Next week I'll prepare an Indy 500 report. Our trip to Indy was very fun, our driver James didn't have the result we had hoped for, but there were reasons for it. Racing can be very challenging at times. We are looking forward to sharing more of the story with you and a little about our travel to one of the most enthusiastic racing fan destinations in the world!
Have a blessed weekend and remember what Winston Churchill said, "Never, never, never give up!"
