"...and the days dwindle down to a precious few.."
September --- November -- December!!.
Our deadline, January 6, is fast approaching. Pledges are coming in steadily, but we sure hope for an upturn. As we all know by now, if we don't meet our goal by the deadline, it's all off. Pledges (and rewards!) are cancelled.
We (and I do mean me and others, not the editorial "we") have been working almost round the clock in our drive to develop new donors. Confidence is high, and we will do this!! Recently we've been concentrating on contacting potential "high end" donors. We need some major, large donations in order to succeed.
Got any ideas? Names? Please -- let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org or send a Kickstarter message -- I'll get it.
And, once again, if you have friends (we assume you do!) please tell them about our passion for this project! The magic link to send is
And please remember that if you click on the "Manage My Pledge" button, you can change the amount of your pledge. Think of it this way: If everyone doubled their current (already generous) pledge, we'd have twice as much! Seriously, though, you might consider upping a bit.Finally for this week, there are three other ways you can help that won't cost you another penny:
- FACEBOOK - Spread the link around. Just paste it into your status
- TWITTER - Tweet about Mischief and give the link, above
- BLOG - Do you follow a blogging site? You know what to do
