The “High Shine: 15 Years of International Ms Bootblack” Kickstarter is down to an hourly countdown–it ends ***8:59pm SATURDAY (PST)***

Every dollar counts…all additional funds we raise past the original Kickstarter goal will go toward paying for post-production editing.  To those who’ve given: thank you SO much!  Please consider asking your family, friends and fellow members of your clubs & organizations to help, too.

Please repost this announcement to your timelines and feeds and in any groups where it would be appropriate and welcome. Won’t you please help us tell the story of these incredible members of our community.


As a special bonus check out how the first International Ms Bootblack Winner’s Circle looked back in 1999 when Leslie Anderson won the title? Just click on the link here and watch the film placed in our “High Shine: 15 Years of International Ms Bootblack” Kickstarter page.
Thanks again to everyone who has already pledged and shared to help us make a film that will honor the bootblacks who are the heart and soul of our community. For more information and to register to attend the 15th Annual International Ms Bootblack Contest Celebration visit http://www.IMsL.org
