A thank you to our first week backers

Posted by Tripod Media (Creator)

To all our first week backers of Good Ol' Freda - thank you!! We have had an amazing first week, raising over $10,000. Thank you for being among our first supporters! We truly believe in this project to preserve Freda's stories in what will be not only a film, but also an archive of music history. So we are very grateful for your contributions.

We still have $40,000 to go, so please continue help us spread the word to Beatles fans and supporters of the arts. Every little bit helps! If you know anyone who might be interested in contributing, please feel free to forward the blurb below.

Thank you!!!

-The Tripod Media Team, and of course Freda Kelly

GOOD OL' FREDA

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215635909/good-ol-freda 

GOOD OL' FREDA is a documentary film about the untold story of Freda Kelly, The Beatles' trusted secretary and friend throughout their rise to fame. The movie's title comes from the line The Beatles shouted out to her on their legendary 1963 Christmas record. The filmmakers are currently trying to raise the funds to make the film on Kickstarter, a website where you can make a donation to a film and get a reward in return (signed DVDs, photos of Freda with the Beatles, even lunch or a personal tour of Liverpool w/ Freda!) They are trying to raise $50,000 by 11-11-11. Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing website, so if they don't raise the full $50,000 they get nothing! Please check out http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215635909/good-ol-freda to read more about it and support this very worthwhile film. There's a great video you can watch of Freda explaining what the film will be about. It's been 50 years (!) since Freda began her work for the Fab Four and this movie will be the first time she's sharing her memories, so let's make this Kickstarter campaign go viral and help these filmmakers get it completed and preserve Freda's stories forever!
