Filmmaker Regge Life has started a Kickstarter page to raise funds and promote his new project, a documentary on Taylor Anderson. He and his team are hoping to raise $18,000 by April 21, 2012. As is with all Kickstarter projects, the project will only be funded if they are able to reach their pledge goal. If you are looking for a different way to bring awareness to the JET community, the JET mission, and how JET relationships with their hometowns in Japan can have a deep and lasting impression, please consider pledging to this project.
This film is a story about Taylor Anderson and all the young people who travel the world trying to make a difference. Taylor was an extraordinary American who dedicated herself to teaching Japanese children, living her dream right up to the events of March 11, 2011. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a disaster that no one could have expected. In my 21 years of working on Japan based projects, I had witnessed earthquakes, but never the devastation of a tsunami.
