We’re excited that some groups in the US and even China are starting to organize fundraising screenings featuring our documentary! The most recent two are raising money for a Families with Children from China (FCC) and surgery for a child being held at a Children’s Home in Shanghai.
Families With Children From China is proud to present the Oregon Premiere of the documentary The Invisible Red Thread on December 9 as a fundraiser for its Oregon and SW Washington chapter. The chapter contacted us back in June and since then have put together a great event at Portland’s Clinton Street Theatre. Aside from the film’s screening (with popcorn and snacks available!), there’ll be a raffle and a remote Q&A session with the film’s co-director Maureen Marovitch. General admission tickets are $10, with discounts for members of FCC-Oregon & SW Washington. There’s even an early bird rate for those who buy their tickets before Friday!

Last weekend also saw a fundraising screening of “The Invisible Red Thread” in Shanghai! Organized by North American ex-pat Sarah Uren, invitations were extended to the community of North American families who have adopted while living in Shanghai or who are still waiting to adopt. The screening was held at Bali Bistro, where Sarah reported that some tears were shed during the screening along with many laughs, especially at the recognizable parts filmed in their city. Proceeds of the screening will go towards financing a baby’s surgery at a Baby Home in Shanghai.
