      Hey Whoopi, just wanted to say I enjoyed seeing you on 666 Park Avenue recently, and it reminded me about this project. Is there any news you are able to share at this point? Thanks!

      Dear Whoopi,

      I'm so glad you made it! Your custom Christmas ornament arrived and it's is beautiful! I'll be thinking of you and your terrific contributions for years to come! Thanks for inviting me to be part of your magic...

      Congratulations, I'm looking forward to the film which I am confident will be eye opening.

      Kickstarter's for everyone and your project will help grow/further legitimize the platform, don't let anyone make you feel bad for being here. It's a great project which is why it got funded.
