Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story

Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is the true story of a Jay DeMerit but really it is about never giving up and chasing your dream as far as it can go. It is an amazing story of DeMerit's dream that seemed unattainable, of how after college he left for Europe to try and become a professional soccer payer. He slept where he could, he painted houses for cash and survived on beans and toast. Wonder if that limited his customers...

Jay took a wild and crazy route to get into the top levels of soccer and even represent America at the 2010 World Cup. His story is incredible and inspiring. I have to admit, I have not always been a fan of his on the field, but I do admire him for following his dream, showing that it can be done against huge odds.

The documentary is close to getting the needed funding to be finished. Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. People pledge money to projects from the worlds of music, art, film, technology, design, food, and other creative fields. Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires.

As of this morning there were about two and a half days left and only a few thousand more needed for the project to be fully funded. If the project in Kickstarter is not fully funded, the project does not get any of the money from Kickstarter.

Go here to pledge help to get this inspiring story finished and shared with the world.
