I am participating in a campaign to promote this show as a representative of the Entertainment New Media Network. I am not being compensated in any way for this campaign, but have decided that it is something I would like to help promote on the actor's behalf.
Question for you. Do you know who this is? Stick with me now ...
... I'm being totally serious. Do you?
Yeah - me, too. And if I show you his picture and/or say Sean Astin's name I know that the first thing you think of has NOTHING to do with politics.
Admittedly, it's not where my mind goes, either.
But that's where he's headed these days, and it's pretty awesome.
So, sure, Goonies rocked. Not a single football fan wouldn't scream RUDY if they saw him on the street. LOTR fans adore him. He's a well-known name, he's got characters that stick with you.
But he's got a lot more happening, as well.
Take a look ...
Sean's got a great political talk show happening and is working hard to get it funded. He could use your support. OUR support. If you can't contribute would you consider sharing? Think about how many friends you know who would love to help him reach his dream. Joining him on the ground floor of his mission? It sounds pretty cool, doesn't it?
I watched the clip and I'll tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. What did you think? You didn't watch -did you? Fine. Go back and watch now. I'll wait.
See? Professional. Political but NOT controversial. Focused on opening up the lines of communication. Between people of all parties and political affiliations. Sean actually WANTS to hear from people he disagrees with. Not so he can change their/your/our mind(s). But so the conversation can be worthy of so much more than one-sided blathering.
For more info on the Vox Populi Kickstarter Campaign, click through and check it out. There are some interesting perks worth looking into, as well. You can even scroll to the bottom of that page and ask questions directly to Sean and his team. So if the info I've provided isn't enough - head on over. It's worth a read, at least!
Check out what his mom has to say about his motivation and this incredible campaign here on Patty Duke's Facebook page. I often forget that she's his mom. What an awesome celebrity family. I love the pride and support shown there.
Have questions for me? Leave them in the comments. Want to join in on this campaign to share Sean's dreams? Let me know. You, too, can support him with your voice. I know he'd appreciate it. *Small disclaimer: No, I don't know him ... yet. But Entertainment New Media Network is going places. Join me for the ride. Maybe we'll meet him soon?
Thanks for your time, friends. Catch ya' on the flipside!
