Jackson Rathbone's (AKA Jasper Hale) new movie "Girlfriend" needs help & money to try to get a wider release. And this poster signed by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner is being auctioned on EBay to help raise money.
From MTV's Hollywood Crush:
In a statement exclusive to Hollywood Crush, "Girlfriend" producers Justin Lerner (who also directed the movie), Jerad Anderson, Kristina Lauren Anderson and Shaun O'Banion explained why they created the site.
"As many people know, the costs of finishing a film, making prints, submitting to festivals, as well as publicity and marketing (the big one) are, as Kevin Smith pointed out at Sundance this year, sometimes more costly than an indie film's entire budget. Therein lies the dilemma for a complex, artistic, intelligent film like ours," they wrote.
"So far, there has been a strong outpouring of support, and donations have been varied—as large as $100 and as small as $5 or $10... every little bit helps and allows us the chance of getting the film out to a wider audience, and to ensure that those who have supported the film may have an opportunity to see it in a theater near them. We also hope to donate a portion of the final amount to the NDSS (National Down Syndrome Society)."
They have also set up a seperate site to raise funds that include perks that include posters, screenplays, photo still, depending on how much money you donate. You can see the perks & do that here.
