Win 2 Tickets to "The Bounce Back" Movie Premier and After Party!


     As many of you know, a month ago I was honored to be included in a unique campaign for a new movie "The Bounce Back". Simply put, this project is one of a kind promotion where we, the blogging community are showing just what is possible  when we when we all join forces. If you missed my original article a few weeks ago,  you can check it out here at The Bounce Back.  You might be asking what the connection is to Disney and Shemar Moore and what drew me to the project in the first place.

      On April 8, 2013, beloved Disney Icon Annette Funicello lost her 25-year battle with Multiple Sclerosis, also known as the great crippler of young adults.  In her autobiography, “A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes” in which she detailed her battle with MS and her relentless drive to find a cure, Annette wrote “It’s funny, but sometimes when I feel discouraged or have a problem I can’t work out, I find myself thinking, ‘If only Mr. Disney were here, he would know what to do.’ “Annette may have lost her courageous battle with MS but others around Hollywood continue to help the battle rage on until a cure is found. One such actor is Shemar Moore, star of “Criminal Minds” and the up and coming film, “The Bounce Back.”
             While appearing on the CBS daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless”, Shemar’s mother was diagnosed with the same disease that strikes 40,000 Americans each year.  Moore once told People Magazine “She’s always been Superwoman, but now she’s met her kryptonite.”  During the summer of 2006, Shemar found his own way to bring attention to the disease while helping to raise awareness and much-needed funds by putting together a Bike MS cycle team. Over the years, together with other members of the cast and crew of Criminal Minds, Shemar and like-minded people from across America have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars with the dream of an MS free world in our lifetime. For me personally, MS is something close to my heart as I watched a generation of cousins, as well as my uncle succumb to this dreaded disease. The decision to support someone who gives so much to fight this disease was an easy leap for me to take.
                Everyone that knows this remarkable actor agrees on one thing-that Shemar will fight for what he believes in be it finding a cure for MS or making a film he believes in with all of his heart and soul. This film is “The Bounce Back”.  “I think there is a wonderful poetry to that, the idea of risking it all for love. And I feel, in my heart, that this is why we’re here on this planet.” When asked with all his connections, why not just go to the studios and make the film in the “traditional way” Shemar answered by saying “I felt that with all my great friends supporting this endeavor, I could bring this movie to life with a much smaller budget than most Hollywood films of this caliber. My goal would be that we’d raise half of the 3 million dollar budget through Indiegogo and outside investors. And if we successfully accomplish that goal. I will personally put in 1.5 million (the other half of the budget) so we could begin production immediately” 

                Now here’s where you come in.The Bounce Back is almost to its goal but with just 6 days left in the campaign, needs your help to push it over the top. As a “producer” of the movie, your donation to the project entitles you to everything from tweets, and spoiler alerts from Shemar himself to walk on roles and a chance to attend the movie premiere or have an evening out Mr. Moore. If that weren’t enough, starting tonight and running through the rest of the week, you can enter the Rafflecopter drawing for some incredible prizes.  Now the only question is-what are you waiting for! Help the man who is working so tirelessly to eradicate MS help live out his dream.

               As we enter the home stretch of the Bounce Back film campaign, we are so thankful for all the support and feedback so far. The Bounce Back film officially became the most funded film on Indiegogo and that is thanks to you, the fans!  To celebrate we have an amazing giveaway for all of you. Once lucky winner will receive two tickets to the movie premier and the after party in Los Angeles! (transportation and hotel stay not included)  Good luck and thank you for helping us to make this dream come true.
