In one of his Kickstarter updates, Taika wrote,

I just had an amazing screening for a friend’s charity to raise money for Ethiopian film makers to attend workshops and festivals in France. The response was fantastic and we managed to raise about 4k for those guys. Everyone’s raising money for everyone!

Okay, I’m off to raise some more money for more films. I just can’t stop!!! I hope I’m this enthusiastic about raising a kid.
