Waaahooo! Hey Kokkola Backers...we are right on target! We launched our project one week ago, and thanks to your generous and supportive pledges we are now 25% FUNDED!!! With that kind of dough we most definitely can afford the two fake babies we'll be needing for this production. Wow! (Not to mention a weeks worth of rent for the theatre...but rent is so not as fun to talk about as shopping for obscure props...is it?) And with 3 weeks to go...(if we keep up this momentum)...we will have the funds to fully produce this crazy wacky and completely awesome show!!
So our next goal is to hit 50% by next Friday!!! Can we do it?? I think so...but we need your help. If you know of someone who can spare a dollar to help a small theater company produce tremendous art...please, put our link in front of their face and ask them to help make our dreams come true!
In honor of this Finnish production with every update I'll be posting a FUN FACT ABOUT FINLAND.
FUN FACT ABOUT FINLAND: In Finland, the amount you get fined for speeding on the roads depends on the amount you earn. A man with an annual income of 7€ million was recently charged 116,000€.
