Here's how to join the effort

How would you like to help? Here are some ideas:

  • Hand out flyers at events in your area.
     

  • Post a note on Facebook to let all your friends know your thoughts on the movie. Include information of where and when it will be showing in your area, a link to where they can buy tickets, and direct them to the trailer. (See "WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE WHEN I TALK ABOUT MEET THE PATELS" below.)
     

  • Try to get the information about the film on community lists or any mass emails.
