NOT One Thousand DOLLARS! (Although a thousand backers would do that and MORE!)
A few of you wrote and wanted to make SURE that I made that CLEAR....my TYPO HEADLINE was misleading!
But I think most of you got the gist of what I was trying to say...
ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE/BACKERS who say "Harold Arlen on Broadway is a great idea!"
A FIVE DOLLAR PLEDGE gets 10 (or 20) of your friends on the LIST!:)
Whew....glad I clarified that! Let's get to work!:)
We ONLY have 20 days left....
And we've reached our FINANCIAL GOAL- so HOORAY we'll be funded!
Thanks to ALL OF YOU!
BUT...HAVE WE REALLY MADE OUR CASE ABOUT HAROLD ARLEN and the POTENTIAL POPULARITY OF THIS CLASSIC MUSIC on BROADWAY?
ONLY MORE BACKERS will DO THAT!
Even at $5 an $10 a pop- it adds up AND....It will impress PRODUCERS!
Get your friends on board guys- while there's still time!:)
1000 BACKERS BY THE END OF OUR FUNDING CYCLE!
PLEASE BRING YOUR FRIENDS ON BOARD. Ready....Set....GO!

Hi there, Everyone!
This is a QUICK NOTE to WELCOME and THANK our MANY NEW BACKERS!
As a result of some intrepid and determined backers (who have diligently pitched their friends and families) we have some WONDERFUL NEW BACKERS!
Folks I've never met, who have decided to back some quality new musical theatre!
SO TO ALL OF YOU FOLKS WHO HAVE RECENTLY PLEDGED- if I haven't thanked you PERSONALLY yet- (I WILL!) Here is a catch-up HEART-FELT "THANK YOU" from me and my writing parter Fred Barton. We are exceedingly grateful for your help and VERY pleased to meet you via Kickstarter!
We are closing on 250 BACKERS and this is quite good! We'd like a THOUSAND! It DOES Work to tell your friends that you are supporting this cause and to encourage them to do the same. A ten dollar pledge isn't life-changing for most people but it IS life-changing to our project. Especially when received in multiples of TEN!
SERIOUSLY, folks- Help us BREAK SOME RECORDS on KICKSTARTER.
$55,000 will DO THAT- and we are still quite a distance from that and the clock is ticking. And we if we can go BEYOND THAT- well perhaps our record will stick for a while.:)
TODAY IS GREAT TIME TO DIRECT YOUR FRIENDS TO THE SITE - WE'RE A "FEATURED PROJECT OF THE DAY"- AT THE TOP OF THE WEBSITE! HOORAY FOR US!
And again, THANKS to ALL OF YOU for your pledges- and a special shout out the NEW FOLKS who have been brought on board by mutual friends and who are marvelously willing to support a promising new musical.
HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY WEEKEND EVERYBODY! (AND DROP THOSE FRIENDS an EMAIL or TWO about ONE FOR MY BABY!)
All the best,
Scott Thompson (and Fred Barton!)
Well it's been a SLOW couple of days after we reached our goal. It was to be expected obviously- but we knew it wouldn't last! Backer DON RUSS today proved my theory- grass roots fundraising REALLY WORKS!
Today Don sent a heartfelt email to co-workers and colleagues asking for MANY small contributions and WOW did they come in! 18 NEW BACKERS! In amounts ranging from $5 to $50- Don raised us an additional $300 today on what would have been a lost day for us here on Kickstarter.
TO REALLY MAKE THIS PROJECT FLY- WE NEED THIS KIND OF LOVE, FOLKS!:) And heaven knows, you've PROVED that you love us...
If ALL BACKERS got 10 friends to pledge $10 that's another $20,000! That's how powerful-(and possible) this kind of fundraising can be!
AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL- it will SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE NUMBER OF BACKERS we have. Which is very important to show Producers (who may be considering investing in this show) how MANY people supported it in TOTAL- as opposed to just the impressive generosity of a relatively small group of people.
It's REALLY EASY. Mail the link to TWENTY of YOUR FRIENDS. Tell them you contributed and you are passionate and committed to our success and you really hope they'll help. It's AMAZING how supportive and kind like minded people can be!
HELP US BREAK SOME RECORDS GANG! SOME VERY IMPORTANT PRODUCERS ARE WATCHING!:) You CAN make a difference, ten dollars at a time.
