Make Animation to Help My Friend Whose Life Was Destroyed

This is an unusual post, but Iíve been amazed at how far the CG community has been willing to go, and how much time theyíve been willing to donate, to create something extraordinary. And so I am asking for your help.

Background:

So, hereís the story. When I was a child, I was very close to a family that lived across the street from me. They were a beautiful family. A mother, father, son, and daughter. Growing up, I was particularly close to the daughter. She was only ten years old when we first met. I used to walk her to the school bus when she was little. Eventually, we went to high school together.

Our lives went in two different directions when I left for college. We lost touch. I ended up going to law school, and she ended up going homeless. But I didnít know until last year when I heard in the news that her husband brutally murdered her own mother.

I tried to reach out to her but she wouldnít respond. So to get through to her, I made an animation in Blender along with an orchestral score. It worked. When she saw the animation, she called me the next day. We reconnected. But her life is in shambles. And I want desperately to return hope and beauty to her life.

Your Help:

I am asking artists to help me recreate the animation I made for my friend. I plan to use it to raise money for her. I have two fundraising goals: (1) to hire an orchestra for further fundraising and (2) a much loftier goal, to purchase a house for her. But the only thing Iím asking from you is your computer graphics talent.

My current animation is pretty rough. Here is a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NobvjvcJ7GE

I didnít have the time, resources, or talent to make something of high quality. I need your help to create something that will attract a large audience on youtube and gofundme and inspire them to give. If weíre lucky, the animation just might raise enough money through ads alone. The animation is a fictionalized version of our childhood. I welcome improvement to the storyline.

My friend has lost her way. It will take enormous effort to bring her back. I already spoke to an orchestra, and they are willing to perform for her. A memorable event of significant magnitude can remind her of her importance and inspire her to rejuvenate her life. A chamber orchestra is only about $2000. So itís accomplishable. Thank you for your help.

I have already recruited 4 other artists. There's 5 of us all together. We've got some momentum and we're really starting to create something. If you'd like to be a part of an animated movie, this is an opportunity for you. Thank you.
