Homelessness has always been a part of human society. In today's world, millions are living in the streets or in tarps and tents. Due to recent economic disturbances, people from every class are now living any place they can find. However, the feature film "The Guitar Player" may help to make a difference in the numbers of homeless people out there. It may also help to make a difference in how the general public views those living day to day in the streets.
Written by Michael Stein, "The Guitar Player" is a fantastic story about a man named Robert Shiller. Shiller starts out as a robust, vibrant, and happy teen getting ready to make championship status in his school wrestling team. When he accidentally causes the death of his team mate and closest friend, Shiller's life takes a drastic turn downward. Shiller is shunned and ridiculed by almost everyone in his hometown, causing him to leave with only his dead friends guitar and his wrestling bag.
Becoming homeless overnight, Shiller begins to lead a life that millions are leading all over the world today. He survives one day at time, earning pocket change playing the guitar on the streets. On the good days when he is not sleeping under tarps he ends up living in a shabby hotel and his story takes a turn when he wins the lottery. The greatest aspect of this story is how it reaches into the lives of so many people facing the reality of the streets each day.
You may feel a pull on the strings of your heart as you consider the homeless people you may have seen in your town. You may wonder after hearing a little about Shiller's life if there is something you could do to make a difference. While you sit and ponder this thought, you should know this movie is indeed making charitable history and is giving you a great way to help the people you are thinking about.
Through filmmaker Michael Steins genius, "The Guitar Player" is being made as an independent film being funded by public donations. While this might seem like a strange and alien concept, people considering a donation should also know that half of the money made from the film will go to homeless shelters and other types of homeless charities.
Tarps Plus a leading American tarps supplier is donating tarps to the production as well as tarp give drives that are being held by Stein in order to bring awareness to the cause. A representative of Tarps Plus says, “We are more than thrilled to supply tarps for such a noble cause.”
The irony of this film is how its content affects the populace it is helping through charitable contribution. People interested in supporting this awesome and phenomenal film project can make pledges from $10 up to $10,000. Supporters also get benefits in return for helping the film budget reach its targeted $150,000.
Supporter benefits may include being an extra in the movie or dinner with Micheal Stein. Imagine being able to sit and discuss your views about the story and homelessness with the creator of Robert Shiller. Everyone who makes even the smallest donation will have their name listed in the credits of the movie as a supporter.
Make a difference for a homeless person and help to reach the fundraiser goal for the feature film. Consider the results if everyone gave at least a little. The changes that could be made can be significant for someone that worries every day about a place to sleep at night.
