The Green Burial Council is pleased to announce that 17 certified cemeteries have generously donated a burial plot in their beautiful preserves as a reward for pledging to "A Will for the Woods" Kickstarter campaign.For those who are unfamiliar, Kickstarter is a crowd sourcing website used to fund creative projects; from video games, to new technology, to art and films, Kickstarter helps bring projects, big and small, to fruition.
Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has funded over 44,000 projects, backed by over 4.4 million people donating over $690 million USD.
The first feature length film on the green burial movement, "A Will for the Woods" has introduced the public to the idea of helping save natural areas and conserve resources through sustainable burial practices. The film has garnered great reviews since its premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in April, and is now preparing to screen in festivals & cities across the country! The film has been funded thus far largely by its 4 directors and almost two dozen private donors. The Kickstarter campaign will help back the film for finishing funds and will aid in the implementation of an extensive grassroots distribution campaign. One of the rewards is a pre-order of the DVD!
Don't miss the opportunity to play a role in fostering the green burial movement and leaving a positive impact on our environment!
