last week i received an email with the title i used for this post. intrigued, i opened the email and found the story of sarah berkovich, who was writing about a project very close to her heart:
“two years ago in an environmental science class, i was given a creative assignment that started me on the journey to producing a film. i told the story of my grandfather, victor kaufmann, who in his eighties, has been planting seedlings by hand all over his otherwise barren land in lyle, washington. despite the physical hurdles of age, his goal is to reach 10,000 trees.
the reaction i received from my documentary film class upon sharing his story surprised me: “you have to make this a film!”
i realized that my classmates are right. not only is this story inspiring to me and my family, but it can inspire everyone with the message that it’s never too late to accomplish your dreams.”
sarah and her friend sarah ginsburg, who is helping her produce the film, have created a page on kickstarter where you can watch a video about the project and make a donation to support the documentary:
stories like this are so inspiring to me- a real girl with a dream and a passion who is doing whatever she can to accomplish her goal. thanks so much for sharing, sarah!
