Help me pass the $7,000 mark plus new $34 pledge level!
Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a good start. I have a few new updates to share.
1) 17 days left for the Kickstarter & we've raised $6,933. Help us pass $7k today & get a new reward! See update #2.
2) New $34 Pledge Level
I want to tell you a short story, so please bear with me. A couple years ago, I grabbed my camera & flew back to Indiana to film my mother's last day at the factory. For the first time in my life, I sat down with my mother & began asking her all kinds of questions about her life, her dreams, our relationship, my childhood, etc. I took all that footage & edited it into a 15-minute home video meant for only family and friends. That home video is now being turned into the film you are helping make a reality.
I'd like to share this original version with you, & what a better way then as a reward! So since there's 17 days left with the Kickstarter and today's the 17th of April, I've added a new pledge level of $34 (yay, to addition!) where you'll receive a digital copy of the original home video plus all the rewards above. If you have already made a pledge of $34 or more, you'll receive this new reward. If you're a little shy of it, then consider increasing your pledge. That way, you'll be able to see where the film came from & initially what I was thinking.
3) Thank you to Angry Asian Man, Meganda Films, OneVietnam Network, & The Plaid Bag Connection for blogging about the Kickstarter campaign. Check it out!
Please feel free to share this update with your network. Thanks for reading & for all the support. I really appreciate it.
Have a great week!
