I’m trying to raise $1,000 to produce my best comedy album yet! It’s so funny that when you listen to it you’ll die. And then come back to life.
My new full length album “Wait, I Forgot That I Don’t Love You” has been mastered and the artwork is close to being completed. I’ve been working on it for a year and a half and I’m insanely proud of how it’s come out. There’s 18 tracks and I’ve been working tirelessly to make these the most hilarious tracks you’ve ever heard in your life.
You can listen to most of the tracks on this album at www.mattgriffo.com/music
I’m trying to raise $1,000 dollars and if everyone donates at least $5 I’d have more than enough to produce not only this album but then the next one as well. But let’s start small here. You can donate any amount you want, and the more you donate the bigger the awesome prizes are that you’ll receive. For example! You can receive the album before it’s actually released, have me write a comedy song based on anything you want it to be about, I’ll even play a house show and give all your guests free CD’s, buttons and and t-shirts! You can check out the rewards available to the right on this page.
If I don’t reach $1,000 by April 18, you don’t get charged any money but I don’t release my record, at least not within the year 2010 anyway.
Because I’m an independent comedian, Kickstarter.com has given me the opportunity to raise money using there fundraising platform. They believe a good idea communicated well can spread fast and wide and a large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement. (Hopefully I have a good idea here.)
10% of the funds raised will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund to help Panda Bears because 1) They’re endangered and 2) They’re super cute! (There’s also less than 2,500 of them left in the world. Which is crazy.) You can find out more info on the WWF at http://www.worldwildlife.org
Your Contributions will help fund:
- Printing of 300 copies of my new album “Wait, I Forgot That I Don’t Love You”
- Getting the album distributed to online music retailers. (iTunes, Amazon, Napster.)
- WWF for Panda Bears
You can donate any amount you want. The more you donate the better the prizes will be! You can look to the right to see the rewards that are available. If I don’t reach 1,000 by the deadline you don’t get charged and you don’t pay any money.
So please help me get this new hilarious album released. If you pledge there’s all kinds of greats rewards for you and others. And I’ll be able to release my album!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
