Successful Kickstarter for Virtually Free


Thanks to 218 backers – Shine Global has successfully completed the Kickstarter campaign to help finish our film Virtually Free raising $51,617. We are so grateful for everyone’s generosity, concern about juvenile justice, and their belief in Shine Global and our team to tell this important story.

Virtually Free will become an important element in a national outreach effort to create meaningful alternatives to detention that provide vulnerable teens opportunities to complete their education, discover their own voices and talents, and become adults living productive and meaningful lives.

On behalf of our filmmaker, André Robert Lee, fellow producer, Alexandra Blaney, and Shine Global’s board of directors – thank you.
