Oceanside CA— Mission: Welcome Home tells the unforgettable story of a tight-knit group of Marine Raiders who are on a mission to keep the memory of one of their fallen brothers alive. The story was directly inspired by the heartwarming “celebration of life” ceremonies held by the brothers-in-arms of fallen veterans and is being turned into a short film.
Writer/Director, Kat Croft, is seeking $15,000 on indiegogo.com to make her original film which will premiere at film festivals and will be screened for audiences across the country. It will act as a lasting tribute to the sacrifice made by the men and women serving in the military. So far, the campaign has raised 34% of their goal on the crowdfunding platform and continues to pull in support from around the world.
Croft is offering a variety of rewards for contributing to the film and is asking for donations to support her partner organizations as well. By purchasing the “Featured Reward”, for $20, contributors get a link to a digital copy of the film (Full HD) and access to exclusive behind-the-scenes content.
Supporters also have the option of donating on top of their contribution, to directly donate to Raising Raiders and Brothers in Arms Foundation, both organizations that support the families and children of Marine Raiders. Croft also plans on hiring veterans to work as crew members on the film.
“I come from a long line of family members who served in our military and was inspired to honor the sacrifice our servicemen and women make. This is how I know how to say ‘Thank you for your service.’. I want to give back to our veterans using my talents as a filmmaker…it’s the least I can do.”
