Caravan To Peace

Our film – Stealing The Light – had it’s world premier in Albuquerque, NM at the KiMo Theater on April 9th. It was a huge success – with about 300 – 400 people there. We were able to raise $8,000 for Green Village Schools which was wonderful, and our film had a great response. We had the opportunity to meet a lot of people with the same passion as us, and that is always exciting. The event was hosted by Project PeacePal -http://www.peacepal.org/ – and they put a lot of hard work and effort into making this event so successful – so a huge shout-out goes out to them and all of their volunteers.
