"Thanks for being a friend," - or so goes the theme from TV's "The Golden Girls."
In our case, truer words were never spoken- with major help from all of you, we are close to realizing our goal and the start of our dream! We are now just over $43K which is just over 80% of our $50,000 goal! And we still have over 30 days to fundraise. This is GREAT!
But it is also a dangerous time to be complacent. My writing partner Fred and I always said the last $10K would be the hardest to raise and I think we were right. We still need to spread the word about this in a grass roots way and connect with new friends to the project. And there's no better way to do that than through ALL of YOU, who have already signed on to support it!
Please don't give up sharing the link with your friends and continue to actually talk about the project. Use Facebook and all other outlets. It really produces RESULTS!
And FYI- we are within striking distance of BREAKING the Kickstarter ALL TIME RECORD for a theatre project funding, which is just over $55,000. If we could get there (and beyond?) it would truly send a message to producers that this shows has "legs" and that classic Broadway music is again, alive and well on Broadway.
If every backer we had got ten friends to give ten dollars we'd BREAK THE RECORD as of today....so this is MORE than possible!
Let's make sure we go after the smaller pledges together. (OK maybe a few bigger one's too!)
Thanks again for all your help!
All my best,
