Project to fund the physical production of the Team Hawai'i 2011 CD which has already been recorded.
Every year, Hawai'i non-profit Youth Speaks Hawai'i sends a team of six teen poets to a national youth slam poetry festival and competition called Brave New Voices. The team writes and practices together for months prior to the competition, and this year the team worked extremely hard to refine their individual pieces and develop new group pieces. Their hard work paid off when Team Hawai'i made semifinals and placed 9th in the nation.
Before we sent the team this year, we had them record their work at a small home studio in Mililani called Studio 16. Currently we are working to publish the CD, but to accomplish this in the quality that the poetry deserves is not an inexpensive undertaking. Our goal is to raise $1000 to publish the CDs using publisher discmakers.com, and to use any extra money to pay for mastering the CD to improve quality and aid in the digital and physical distribution of the work.
Any reward level that includes CDs will be shipped once the CDs are produced.
All others will be shipped once the goal has been reached.
With luck, all the rewards will be in your hands by Christmas!
Currently we have two colors:
Teal available in adult men's L, XL
and Shamrock Green available in adult men's S-XL
All sizes are subject to unavailability and an alternate reward of equal or greater value may be substituted.
If you donate $100 or more, you can negotiate your reward.
