Thank you to all who contributed to the Middle East
"I would like to send out my sincerest thanks to all who helped make our trip to the middle east possible. It was a journey that broke my heart into a thousand pieces. I am still picking them up and putting them back together. Right now we are in the process of editing the hundreds of hours of footage that we shot over there. The documentary we are editing will be finished before the end of the year. I am preparing a slide show of all the photos I shot and I am planning several dates this fall speaking about my experience, showing the images and singing the songs inspired by the trek.
Stay tuned to this site for the locations of the slide shows and premier of the film.
Thousands of people made contributions through ticket purchases and donations, including many artists and organizations who donated sizable chunks of change to see this journey happen.
I also want to send a special hug out to my Spearhead bandmates and Guerrilla management family who gave so generously of their time and offered so much moral support. We couldn't have done it without you.
Once again, to all those back home and around the world (especially those on the ground in Iraq, Palestine, Israel and Jordan) who extended a generous hand, I send my deepest gratitude for your funds, advice, e-mails, places to sleep, food, prayers and good intentions; they kept us moving, safe and full of positivity.
I wish you all continued peace and safety wherever you walk and lay your head."
One love, Michael Franti
