Last fall, The Garden Club of the Back Bay traveled to Concord for a tour of Orchard House’s museum and gardens as part of our Author Year programs. We received the following notice from them, and share it with you:
Guess what? Orchard House is making a movie – the first documentary about the 350 year history of the house – and we want YOU to be involved in creating the film.
We’ve launched a fundraising campaign on the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter.com to raise the $150,000 needed for production of Orchard House – Home of Little Women!
For those who may not be familiar, Kickstarter is dedicated to fundraising for creative projects just like this. Funding is all-or-nothing, which means we need to raise every penny of our goal by October 22, 2014 through pledges to our online campaign.
Click here and take just 10 minutes out of your day to visit our page, watch the beautiful 4 minute video, make a donation (called a pledge), and share the campaign with friends and family.
Everyone has a special place – a mountaintop, a cathedral, a beloved home – that makes them feel safe, connected, and inspired. For millions of people from all over the world, Orchard House is that place: a gathering place, where people from many backgrounds have come together for over 350 years to count themselves part of a community – a community steeped in hope, courage, and perseverance.
Many who wish to experience Orchard House may never be able to visit in person, and there are millions more that do not realize the house exists. Together with your pledges and our dedication, this film will change that.
Pledges of all amounts are welcome and encouraged, and there are even some great rewards for our backers. #PledgeYourLove to Orchard House and become part of our legacy!
