Hi, Sounder At Heart members,
My name is Aaron D’Errico. I’m a WA comic book writer and son of NASL Sounders first round draft pick, former USMNT Captain, David D’Errico.
My goal to make a narrated motion comic of my Seattle soccer superhero, "Ammon", so I’m writing to see If any Sounder At Heart members would like to write into the Ellen DeGeneres Show for a segment she’s doing about funding inspiring projects, titled "Are You Trying to Get a Project Funded?" http://www.ellentv.com/be-on-the-show/
Ellen wants to know what inspired the project, (Encouragement from my family, Stan Lee, and NASL Sounders co-owner Pat O’Day), the cost, ($14,000 or more for narration, voice acting, animation, music, etc), and lastly, why it’s important, (Inspiring people to read).
The support of Sounders fans would mean a lot, especially because the goal is to promote reading with it, a personal goal I’ve stuck with after overcoming a learning disability and many of the challenges of brain injuries, cerebral palsy, being hit by a truck, and being unable to work since 2011.
