WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS?
What we received will be put in the Spanish shoot in Barcelona for three days: camara, light and sound rental; van rental, gas and car parks; food for crew members during the shoot; hard drives and couriers to London.
On top of the money spent for rewards, bank commissions, Paypal and the crowdfunding platform commission.
And if we get more money than what we pledge?
We the specific amount we ask for, we will have a very tight shoot, however, if we go over it and raise 2.800€, our shoot will be much more comfortable and we will be able to get even more amazing material.
And if EVEN MORE MONEY comes in?
Then we will help the main budget that comes from London, where they contemplate the journey of the 11 kids with a tutor to London for 4 days, where the match will be played and several activities will be organized for them.
We would help our kid get to London!
