We are now officially requesting Gold Star Mothers from all across the country to submit their experiences to our researchers for the film. We want to hear from you personally.
While it is not possible to include every family in the actual film, we have received so many great stories and wisdom that we have decided to put together a companion book to the film, called “They Shall Live: Stories from the Hearts of America’s Gold Star Mothers”. Proceeds from this book will go directly to funding the film, with 5% of all proceeds being donated directly to American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. Please specify if you would like to be considered for inclusion in the film, companion book, or both. Our researchers may follow up with you in the coming weeks for additional information. Please spread the word about this storytelling campaign to anyone who may be interested in sharing. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience.
