This from Tony Comstock:
Mrs.C, myself, and the rest of our brood returned from two weeks of no e-mail, voice-mail or news reports to see that Katrina was lining up on the Gulf Coast and gaining strength. I’m an amateur hurricane watcher, so it was with increasing dread that I watched her climb from a cat. two to cat. three storm. Then my dread turned to horror as she went cat. four, then five. Even still, I was unprepared for what we’ve all seen unfold in the week since the storm slammed into the shoreline.
Comstock Films is setting aside Wednesday, September 14th as our day to respond to this tragedy. On that day we will donate the purchase price of all DVD orders and pre-orders made from the ComstockFilms.com Web site to the American Red Cross. When Mrs. C started looking for the most transparent way to make this donation, she discovered our ISP is offering dollar for dollar matching of any donations, so we’ll be using their “portal” to maximize the amount donated.
What that means is for every copy of Marie and Jack: A Hardcore Love Story and Xana and Dax: When Opposites Attract sold on that day ($24.95), nearly $50 will go to the Red Cross. For every DVD pre-order, nearly $26 will go to assist the people of the Gulf Coast in this terrible time. (Please note: Pre-orders made on September 14th are
If you’ve been telling a friend to check out Comstock Films, on September 14th they can buy a great DVD and send nearly $50 to help with the rescue and recovery efforts. Buy two DVDs and you’ll be sending $100 to help people who are in desperate need. If you’ve got a copy of your own, buy one for a friend or pre-order one of our upcoming titles.
We’ll be sending out an e-mail announcement on Tuesday, and I’ll be posting this to my blog, but I don’t want this to be bunch of Comstock Films hype, so we won’t make another announcement until Sept. 13th. I’ll leave it to each of you to decide for yourself if this feels like an appropriate gesture. If it does please pass this along or repost as you see fit.
Yours very sincerely,
Real Life, Real People, Real Sex
(Folks – Tony and his wife make great movies that are worth watching even if you weren’t helping out those whose lives were devastated by Katrina. So maximize your enjoyment, buy some great romantic movies with hot hot sex on September 14 and help someone)
