"I am interetsd in how we can get a copy of this to Canada in some affordable fashion. Can anyone give me that information? It is meaningful to get parents thinking about thier kids and thier own lives and lifestyles and essenmtial to get the kids out"

I am very interested in sponsoring a screening here.  I would like to work with Andy at the Rye Public Library to do so.  It could be cosponsored by them and Next Generation Choices Foundation.  We could promote to the NH Seacoast audience.  I have seen the trailer.  I cannot come on the 12th.  Is there another way for Andy and me  to see the whole movie?

Hi Camilla: Thanks for your email; I'm sorry I haven't followed up. School vacation really pushed me off course! I would love to chat about ways to collaborate; what is the best way to do that? Thanks again.

Hi Camilla: I first want to say that I was so moved by your documentary Holding Our Own. Since watching it, I have thought often of the Hallowell chorus and of Deidre Scherer's incredibly beautiful art, especially as I was comforting my mother through her last days of lung cancer. How I wish we could have brought her that music!
I am writing now to let you know that our school in Essex Junction, VT, Summit Street School, is undertaking a project to build a natural playground. So, naturally, I am thrilled by the subject of your new project and wonder how we could share your film with our community? I don't know exactly when it is expected to be released or in what venues. Also, I am wondering if you would consider speaking to our community about your project. In addition to fundraising and working toward a final design plan, our project has been committed to educating our families and community about the benefits of play in nature, the No Child Left Inside Movement and why our new playground will be good for all of us. Your input, in person or by your film, would be the perfect way to bring this kind of education. Or, could we collaborate on a fundraising event of some kind? Thanks for your great work! and for even considering my ramblings above.
