Two passionate Winnipeg Jets fans, the co-founders of WinnipegWhiteOut.com, relocated to Calgary years ago. With the news that the return of the NHL has finally come back to Winnipeg, they decided to have an adventure a road trip.
The original idea was to drive the over 8,000 kilometres of highway between Calgary, Winnipeg, Chicago, Phoenix and Las Vegas, taking in four hockey games. Then the idea became something bigger a drive for charity. WinnipegWhiteOut.com partnered with Believe in the Goal Foundation to raise additional funds and awareness for their unique initiative; to improve cancer patient care.
Then came along the idea of turning the adventure in to a documentary. Through various meetings and conversations with filmmakers, producers and distributors, it was agreed this trip would need to be captured on film and shared with the hundreds of thousands of passionate hockey fans around the world.
And that brings us to this JET FUEL. A movie for the fans, about the fans, by the fans. We need your help to fund portions of the documentary. We want to actually see you in the movie as well, on camera if youre up for becoming a star?
Were committed to this adventure and doing our best to create a remarkable film at the end of it, but it will be so much easier with your help. Our travels set off on October 7 from Calgary, AB and will complete when we return 2-weeks later on October 21. Spread the word to your friends and family on Twitter, Facebook, email or in person and get involved today. You too can become a movie producer.
Thank you in advance.
We mentioned our charity partner. When one of our co-founders was just 6 years old, he lost his then 2 1/2 year old brother to cancer. It hit home. There were countless nights spent in the hospital by himself and his parents. It was tough and uncomfortable. When we started WinnipegWhiteOut.com we felt compelled to partner with a charity. That's when we were fortunate to come across Believe in the Goal whose purpose is to improve cancer patient care.
With JET FUEL, the goal is to create a long lasting legacy. Something that will continue to give back. A portion of proceeds from the sale of the movie will go to the foundation. In addition it will help raise the profile of BIG and educate the need to continuously improve patient care. Because when you're battling a disease, being comfortable just helps make it easier.
What We Need & What You Get
It might seem like we're looking for a lot, but in all reality it's a drop in the bucket. There's a lot of personal sacrifice being made to make this movie and document this historic adventure. Even with our connections and deals we're expecting accommodations alone to cost $1500 and almost the same for fuel. All of your funding will go directly to the costs of making this movie. We're prepared to cover the costs if we don't reach our funding, but then you won't get the benefit of being part of such an historic adventure.
You can be a part of this for as little as $1 however the fun stuff starts to happen at the $25 contribution level.
