"I'm raising money to be able to tell my story but I need your help to reach my goal!" Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
Helise Flickstein believes in the power of story and in the power of women.
When Helise was researching her screenplay on Women's Rights activist, Susan B Anthony, she learned that Anthony's childhood home in Battenville, New York was in foreclosure. Not only did Helise convince the the bank to donate it to the New York State Parks Department, but she made sure that the house in the New York State and National historical registers.
Helise has a gift for writing and recently won a Founder's Award to the Cape Cod Story Summit. But Helise needs additional help to complete her tuition.
A single mom with five children, Helise is always giving back. It is time to help Helise realize her dream. She has won several screenplay competitions but the Story Summit will allow her to interface with industry professionals and help kick her talents intio high gear. We need voices like Helise's to elevate our culture.
Helise has had a rough go of it for the last 24 months. "My fiancee Gary died two years ago at 47 years old. My son Preston went through open heart surgery last year. My mom currently has an aggressive stage 4 cancer." But Helise is not a quitter. " I just want something good to happen to my family," she says.
Let's help Helise and her family. Every contribution or share of this campaign will help. THANK YOU!
From the beginning, it was always the word. Through the unique ability to imagine and connect to one another through words, humankind stepped into greatness.
Had it not been for Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables, our hearts may never have known compassion for the poor.
Had it not been for Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, there may have never have been a civil rights movement.
Had it not been for Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, A Ghost Story, there may never have been the charitable component associated with the holiday.
We need one another. Had Ernest Hemingway not encouraged J.D. Salinger, there may never have been The Catcher in the Rye
The writer’s life can be lonely, so it is important to connect them with professionals who can support them in their storytelling and a lifetime of stories.
We see people, not writers. We are inspired by their passion and their willingness to give themselves up for their story.
We see equal value in all writers. We are dedicated to improving the lives of every storyteller we work with.
We build partnerships around the world with like-minded dreamers interested in building a better tomorrow through the future of storytelling.
The Mission of the Storyteller Foundation is to elevate the human experience through stories that inspire and encourage.
