WTCQD NOTE to ALL WTCQD Videographers: 

Dear organizers/videographers, the quality of photography and cinematography of your event coverage is stunning, way beyond what we all started with years ago. We wish we could headline every one of your videos coming in, and we will post them and run them, but it will take time.  DO NOT LOSE your high-resolution video files. We are certain that one day a feature length documentary of WTCQD will be done, and we'll do a call out for quality video files of past events from around the world when that happens. We are only waiting for a cinematographer with vision to embrace this and start a Kickstarter, etc. campaign to get it going. Our hope is the documentary will be titled "One World ... One Breath: A Global Tai Chi & Qigong Evolutionary Movement." Any accomplished, visionary documentarians out there? WTCQD is a gift to any documentarian with the vision to take advantage of it, documentarians/funders of documentaries read more.

Yours in Qi,

Bill & Angela Wong Douglas, Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

"This event is not just about watching a bunch of
Tai Chi, it is also about saying 'the heart of what
we do is a common meeting ground for people of
very different backgrounds.' We call it 24 Hours
of 
World Peace for a reason. Because if we can get
together for one day and forget about everything that
divides us and separates us and makes us different
from each other ... and focus instead on one of the
things that makes us similar ... that we enjoy together
... that's a recipe for world peace.

... there is a "GoFundMe" link, and if you click
on that, you can contribute to the fundraising for
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day and the
24 Hours of World Peace Livestream project."

-- David-Dorian Ross, 
Host of 24 Hours of 
World Peace Livestream,
David-Dorian is the host and star of the PBS special
T'ai Chi, Health and Happiness. 

David holds the record as  America's competitive
T'ai Chi 
Champion - winning 8 US Gold Medals, a
World Silver medal and 2 World Bronze
medals in T'ai Chi performance (still the
highest record of any American T'ai Chi athlete).
