The Occasion
On Saturday, April 10, 2010, a short trailer for the multi-award-winning feature length documentary, Darius Goes West, won “Best YouTube Nonprofit Video of the Year.” The video was featured on the YouTube homepage, and you can watch it above. You might have heard an enticing offer at the 1-minute. In case you missed it….

The Offer
We, the Darius Goes West Organization, are offering to send a free copy of the 1 hour version of Darius Goes West on DVD to every middle school and every high school in the country. This is similar to our letter-writing campaign last year, but this year you have to tell us that you want the DVD. The offer ends on Friday, April 16th.

To be clear: If ten teachers respond to the offer before April 23rd, only ten DVDs will be delivered. If 100,000 teachers learn about the offer, then we will deliver 100,000 free copies of the feature length film—one to each teacher/administrator who responds.

To be extra clear: Because of shipping costs, we can only offer the free DVDs to middle schools and high schools in the United States. We will ship a maximum of one DVD per school. If a teacher from your school has already contacted us, we will let you know so that you can each share the DVD when it arrives.

The Motive
In the past three years over 100,000 students at over 1,000 schools across the country have hosted Darius Goes West (DGW) screenings in their communities. As a result, the DGW movie (nonprofit) has become a nation-wide grassroots movement, and the DGW Organization (nonprofit) has been able to make real strides towards finding and funding a treatment or cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

Our motivation is to enable your motivation, because, together, we can end Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Together, we can end the #1 genetic killer of children in the world (and have a lot of fun doing it!).

    Hello. I’m a school counselor at Grand Blanc Academy in Grand Blanc, MI. We’re a K-8 charter school serving an even mix of students from the suburbs and the city of Flint.

    You sent me a copy of the DVD and I love it. My kids now all know what DMD and the ADA are… many great discussions followed.

    I am working with various community agencies. One goup of people I work with are called “Men of Tomorrow” which is a mentoring / community education resource for young men in Flint, MI. With funding being cut all over the place there is a great need of support for these types of non-traditional educators.

    I was wondering if I could have a copy of DGW for this group. They’ve asked me how to get one but say that this offer is only for teachers. Could they have a copy for being educators of our youth in a non-school environment?
