Subject: Hope you can help!
Dear friends and family:
I am writing to you with an SOS!
Our ﬁlm VESSEL is so close to being possible, but we just found out that our fundraising window has become signiﬁcantly smaller. We urgently need your help!
Vessel is a documentary ﬁlm in production about a Dutch doctor, Rebecca Gomperts, who sails through loopholes in maritime law, risking her life to provide medical abortions on the high seas to women of countries where abortion is illegal.
And Rebecca has invited us to ﬁlm her riskiest trip yet, to South America – next month!
Support for Vessel thus far has been overwhelming, and great thanks to those of you who have already donated.
But we are still short on the funds we need by our deadline of May 15.
If this project resonates with you, please consider investing or making a tax-deductible donation.
You can donate:
online at http://vesselthefilm.com/Vessel/Contribute.html
by a check made out to our ﬁscal sponsor
Off the Leesh Productions
Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211
If you’d like to learn more about investment opportunities, please contact me for more info.
And pass this plea on to anyone you know that might be interested in contributing to this cause!

Your gift will help bring this story of activism and courage to fruition. Thank you!
