After the movie is produced 20% of the profit goes to charity.

WHAT IS THE INTEREST TO YOU? I would like to close a deal for the movie with least $3,000,000.00 in investment at a 10% return, or $300,000.00. As security, the studio is prepared to offer a percentage up front, as long as the asking price is committed. In the charts below, the hypothetical investment applies to your organization, and the hypothetical profit applies to mine. If the deal closes, at the end of the film sale date, I will pledge 20% of the total profit to philanthropy ($240,000.00 as estimated). It’s a win-win scenario.

WHERE WILL THE PROFITS GO? Gothic Serpent is deeply interested in doing good for the world. Because of this, 20% of the profit will go back to society for important issues such as global development (including water, vaccine delivery, family planning, and agriculture), global health (including key diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis) and other causes such as tobacco / diabetes awareness and U.S. education advocacy/administrative programs. Additionally, although these numbers might seem small in value at 20% of the total profit, over time the percentage can increase as the company value increases. This initial framework of attempt can serve as a gateway to starting the important journey of helping those desperately in need.

About 33% of child mortality is related to malnutrition and other preventable diseases.

Most of these deaths occur in SubSaharan Africa. But if we can partner with individuals already deployed starting at a small scale, we can make a big difference.

These important African crops are staple foods for the same regions that often suffer from low crop yields. If we can partner with local farmers, we can help out.
