The Final Weekend!
We are down to our final week and weekend of our Mirabelle Plush Campaign. We wanted to share with you an email we received from one of our backers and a great friend of Darrin Wilson, who is the owner of Tall Trees Toyworks, the toy company that helped us develop our Mirabelle Plush.
We had the great fortune of working closely with Darrin and his amazing staff of designers. Tom and I had a definite concept in mind. We didn't just want a dog plush that looked like a Boston Terrier (a breed we absolutely love - just ask any Boston owner!). What we wanted is a plush toy that looks like Mirabelle! We have been searching for a long time for just the right look, and by working with Darrin we got it. His guidance and knowledge of the industry were invaluable to us during this project. Here is the link to his website, and the picture below is of Mirabelle (the plush) with her "wugadog" friends from Tall Trees!
So, the email came to us from Darrin's friend, Marc Cook. Here is the email:
Marc J. Cook says: 12-8-2014 @ 9:11 P.M. I WILL PLEDGE ANOTHER AMOUNT (My First Was $200)...THIS TIME $500...ONLY IF YOU CAN FIND OTHERS TO GIVE THE REMAINING $4500 BY 12-18-2014 BY 3:00 P.M... SINCERELY, MARC JAMES COOK. ONLY DOING THIS FOR DARRIN WILSON...AND THE REASON WHY...EVERYBODY SHOULD BE PROUD OF THIS MAN...FOR ALL THE GOOD HE HAS DONE & HIS HEART!!!

There is the challenge! We are currently at $10K and need an additional $4K by 12/18/14 to make the goal. Anything you can do in this last week to help us get there would be greatly appreciated. We can't thank you all enough for your support in getting us this far!
All our best,
Michael, Tom and of course Mirabelle
