Hi beautiful supporters one and all,
Wow - just six days until we hit the open road. Without your support and a successful fundraising campaign last month, who knows if we'd even be able to depart at all.
But because you gave what you could, we are about to connect with dozens of inspirational individuals and communities that use sport to defy their physical challenges. And for this, we want to thank you in person.
Please join us on Thursday the 10th at the Towers in Narragansett, RI for an opportunity for us to simply say, thank you. We think you all are really awesome people, even those of you who we haven't met yet. We want all of you to have an opportunity to meet and see what else you have in common, aside from supporting our cause.
The night will be very low-key. Cash bar, relaxing music, and good people. We're keeping it simple, and closing the towers at 10 pm. Turtle Soup, a great restaurant and bar just down the road has invited us to continue the night there for those who wish to.
Unlike last year's event, we don't aim to fundraise at the towers, but rather break even. Your pledge during the kickstarter campaign is your ticket at the door. And for your friends who didn't pledge, we ask for $10 to help cover costs of the evening.
Most importantly, this event is to celebrate those who support our cause. We want to have a great time before we leave, but responsibly. If your friends mention the event, please remind them they should attend not for the cash bar, but for supporting our mission.
If you have any bumper stickers from your company, organization, local surf shop, or wherever, bring them! Everyone is invited to help decorate the mini-bus.
Oh, and one more thing. We are, after all, making a film, so don't be alarmed if you see a camera or two walking around. Feel free to let us know if this doesn't sit right with you, and we'll steer clear. But really, you're awesome, and we want you in the film.
WE LOVE YOU!!
Hope to see you there.
Love, Endless Abilities
You did it!! You successfully helped us raise $30,000, with over a day before our deadline to spare! Thank you!!
There's nothing stopping us now. Nothing stopping the bus from leaving little Rhody in three weeks. Nothing stopping us from reaching California and meeting countless inspirational individuals on the way. Nothing stopping our story from reaching the screen and audiences everywhere for years to come.
Of course, there's twenty four hours left to throw your support behind us and get awesome swag in return. We're guaranteed to complete this film with the success of our campaign, and anything else you can pitch in will help it reach its full potential.
You're all invited to our going away party at the Narragansett Towers on May 10th! Your pledge is your ticket at the door. Unlike last year, the goal is not to fundraise. We hope to just break even on the night with a small cash bar, but the point of the party is to thank our friends who supported us through this campaign.
Anyway, we are so incredibly flattered by your support. Feeling pretty good about this whole project... If you are too, here's the trailer for you to enjoy. Hope it gets you as stoked as it gets us.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Hello generous friends one and all!
Great news! We are just $6k away from our $30k goal. But with four days left, we need all the help we can get.
We're amazed by the support you've shown so far. Many of you have posted the Kickstarter link online and spread the word in your neighborhood. Some of you have offered a place to sleep, eat, and shower for us on the road. Others have even increased their pledge amount by a few bucks, an act that really does make a big difference.
For those of you who have already pledged, THANK YOU!! You've already done your part, but of course we would be forever grateful of you added a few bucks to your pledge.
Just think, if each of our almost 200 backers added $5 each, we'd be $1,000 closer!
And for those of you who want to pledge but aren't sure how much, please make your move today. Pledging your minimum today will keep our momentum up, and you can always adjust your pledge closer to the deadline.
Please take a moment to check out our new campaign video!
Happy Patriots Day!
Hello generous friends one and all,
Before fundraising stuff, we'd like to remind you why we're doing this project, with a quick moment from sailing this summer. See below to watch.
We've made great progress so far! Over a third of our goal raised, and now two weeks to go.
Thank you so much for pledging your support. Whatever the amount, seriously we are very, very thankful.
BIG NEWS! We're adding a new incentive:
Pledge $400 and we'll shoot a fun thank you video of us on the road, personalized for you. T-shirt, DVD/Blu-Ray, and poster included!
It's basically the coolest Endless Abilities swag kit you could imagine. Please tell your friends, and we can meet our short term goal:
50% by Easter Sunday.
We're firing on all cylinders to meet this. That's just less than $4,000 this weekend.
So if you're feeling generous yourself, or motivated to inspire others, please help us meet this goal! If you know someone who wants to pledge eventually but hasn't yet, please ask them to throw in what they can, TODAY!
Thank you for your support! We love all of you very dearly. Seriously. You rock.
Oh, and if you like partying on the beach, join us in Narragansett on May 11th!
