Donation dollars are action dollars. They finance the actual video recordings. The basic cost per interview is $250.00 which includes the services of a professional videographer, the temporary storage of the master footage and production of of a Keepsake DVD and archival DVD. While the OHSSM Committee does not have the overhead expense of an office, the information folders and preparation folders for interviewees do cost money.

Those who call Sault Ste. Marie and area home understand the term “one degree of separation”. We’re a small city with a long history and often it doesn’t take much more than, what street did you grow up on? or, what school did you go to? to find a connection. In honour of these values, the OHSSM Committee has created the Pay it Forward plan. Sponsor an interviewee of your choice and then, pay it forward. Your donation will be acknowledged on the recipient’s Keepsake DVD and the public archive DVD.  Of course you can always select an Anonymous title, but the fun of it is that your family name will be remembered and appreciated by another’s, far into the future.
