NPX: A FILM SERIES

We've got something we think is pretty neat to share with you over your first (or third?) Saturday morning cup of coffee. (Oh, sweet Saturday morning. I've been waiting for you all week.)

You're familiar with Kickstarter, right?  If not, Kickstarter is a way for folks to raise money and get funded for creative projects. The public decides which projects they'd like to support and bring to life. I've seen some pretty cool ideas that all started from a Kickstarter page.

Via Twitter, (which led us to their Kickstarter page) we ran across film director Amy Marquis and the crew behind National Park Experience: A Film Series, and thought you might want to know about it, too.

If you're an RVer, chances are you've spent some time in a national park. We've been to a few (although we want to hit more, especially out West) and let me tell you – these are special places. If you've ever witnessed the awesomeness of Acadia or the stillness of Shenandoah in winter, you know what we're talking about. These lands are truly an American treasure, and they're here for us to enjoy, cherish – and if we're smart – protect for generations to come.

Check out the project here, and if you feel like making a donation, REI has stepped up and will match all donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000. Nice move, REI.  

Good luck to Amy and everyone behind this worthy project. We'll be watching!
