Yesterday we learned that we only received half of what we requested from one of our grantors. While we are very pleased to have received any funding at all, this was disappointing.

Because the grants do not cover travel costs, I have had to cover those expenses so far. With another trip planned to Hawaii to meet with the Paris family and shoot footage for the television special I will have to get creative to raise funds for the project. The off-island camera crew and DNA testing are other expenses that  are not covered in the grants.

To start with I have included a donation button on the homepage of the website at If you would like to donate you can contribute to the project by visiting the website and clicking on “To donate click here.” There are three categories, Supporter ($20), Contributor ($50) and Sponsor ($500). We appreciate any level of support.
