You're on the journey with us now.
Thanks so much to all of the backers who have joined us on the journey of developing and staging A History of the Body! And thanks to those viewing this project for the first time too. Many of you are new to my work and the project; welcome. Now we are in our last 9 days and it's supporters like YOU who are the best advocates for the work. People are tired of lil' ol' me, but when supporters like you show pride in the decision to put your $ where your heart is, your words speak volumes.
So, when you have a moment, I encourage you to AMPLIFY your generous pledge - make it go even farther! - by any of the following: 1) posting a comment with the link on Facebook saying, "I backed this project, you should too!; 2) Writing a more detailed 'testimonial' about why you think it's important, and posting it on FB, and/or the Comments field here; 3) wanna be really creative? Make a testimonial video on your iphone or computer, and post it up or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for posting! See a great example here! 4) Forward the link via email, text, twitter, blackberry, appleberry, marionberry, and strawberry (stole that joke from an airline attendant...)
Meanwhile, we'll keep you posted as well as we get closer to our goal!
