Can Christian “crowd-funding” redeem Hollywood?
Lending a hand
Do you wish there could be more Christian movies? So do a lot of folks. And a phenomenon called “crowd-funding” is making it possible for anybody to get involved. Much of the time, it’s not an investment – you’re donating. But you’re contributing to a cause you believe in – spreading the Gospel on the silver screen, particularly since Hollywood generally is ambivalent and sometimes even hostile to the Christian message. “While this concept has arguably been around for centuries,” acknowledges Forbes magazine, it’s still new to a lot of people.
