This is a story that goes far beyond fashion, but we had this moving sensation this morning when a friend told us about this Kickstarter project. A beautiful story that we definitely want to support.
On February 21, 2013, Samantha, an American actor living in Los Angeles, received a message via Facebook that would drastically change her life. It was from Anaïs, a French fashion design student living in London. Anaïs’ friends viewed a KevJumba YouTube video featuring Samantha. They were immediately blown away by the identical appearance of Samantha & Anaïs. After a few light Google stalking sessions, Anaïs & her friends discovered that both girls were born on November 19, 1987 & adopted shortly after. Anaïs knew immediately that it was possible for Samantha to be her biological twin sister & reached out to her through Twitter & Facebook.
What the 2 girls want to achieve?
This full-length documentary will follow Samantha & Anaïs as they prepare to meet in person for the very first time! THey will document their unique experiences through a series of video blogs, video diaries, & skype conversations. In addition, they will capture the girls as they travel through Europe and the United States, exposing them to each other’s vastly different countries & cherished relationships. They will also be there as they take a DNA test and receive results to confirm their siblingship! The film will touch upon nature vs. nurture, adoption, sisterhood, & the power of social media. Their goal is to reveal every step of their journey, in order to exhibit an experience never documented before.
If you want to support them: go on Kickstarter and contribute.
It’s a unique chance to change the destiny of 2 split stories; it’s also an inspiration for all the people looking for the family they miss. Social Media can change the world. You can change the world.
