Short Summary

This campaign is to raise funds for the Public Service Announcement “Shattered Dreams” for MADD Canada. We aspire to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, and ultimately help save lives.

The PSA is a visually striking, emotionally charged music video/short film driven by the song “Shattered Dreams” written and performed by Grammy Nominated and 5 time Juno Award winning recording artist Michael Hanson. The PSA is Written and Directed by Gemini Award winning Director Michael Morrow.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada) is a charitable, grassroots organization that is committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime. Since 1982, with the help of our supporters, MADD Canada has been instrumental in saving more than 35,000 lives.

What We Need & What You Get

This is a professionally produced, world class project that has already found tremendous support from many industry pros. So much so, that the donated services from our supporting partners, cast and crew equal OVER HALF of our entire Production Budget. That said we still have hard costs for EQUIPMENT & VEHICLE RENTALS, EXPENDABLES, PERSONNEL, VISUAL FX, and LOCATION SERVICES.

To cover these expenses, we need your help to raise $40,000.00.

In return for your contributions, we have an array of incredible incentives listed to the right. These diverse incentives include beautifully designed MADD Canada swag to a Personal Performance by Michael Hanson himself. However you choose to help us out, it’s most appreciated. Whichever incentive package you choose, you can be assured your contribution is well spent on this most worthy cause.

Our cast and crew are donating much of their time and talents to this project. By contributing to this campaign, you will help us cover the hard costs to make this PSA, which will in turn increase awareness for MADD Canada’s goal to put an end to impaired driving, the number one criminal cause of death in Canada.
