I just learned about a great new microfunding site that could help bring the elephants to life! It's called kickstarter.com and they make it possible for people to sign on to independent projects that need some cash infusion.
So the Elephants now have a funding home. Check it out at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/862186635/elephants-in-rhode-island-needs-archival-footage
And feel free to pass the info around to your friends, neighbors, rich uncles, etc.
With great thanks....
