Happy Holidays - Preparing Your Rewards

Posted by Tripod Media (Creator)

Happy holidays from the ‘Good Ol’ Freda’ team!

In their 1963 Christmas record, The Beatles shouted out a big Thank You to Freda Kelly in Liverpool. Freda at that time was secretary to Brian Epstein and The Beatles AND the National Secretary of the Official Beatles Fan Club. Almost 50 years later, now Christmas 2011, Freda and the team shout out a big Thank You to all of our backers for your partnership in our Kickstarter campaign.

From Liverpool to California, Alabama, Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Illinois, Washington and Connecticut, our team continues to assemble our Kickstarter rewards and prepare to mail them to you by late February 2012. Freda has signed the reward photos in Liverpool and many of the authors are sending their books to our base here in Atlanta, Georgia---Command Central!

Soon after the first of the year, we will send out a survey through Kickstarter and request your mailing addresses - and for the first time will learn how many countries we need to ship the incentives to! We know for sure there are backers from Denmark, Turkey, Switzerland, USA, Australia, Ireland, Argentina, Malaysia, Germany and of course England. We will be filling out a lot of custom slips! We'll send out most of the rewards in February 2012 including autographed photos, Eric Cash’s artwork, and books.

The ‘Good Ol’ Freda’ documentary is underway and should be completed most likely in early 2013 since it will take about a year to make – and you all will be the first to receive it. So if you move any time in the next year after filling out the survey, be sure to notify us of your new address so your DVD will arrive safely.

So again, watch for the survey in early January 2012, and in the meantime, Happy Crimble and Happy Holidays to everyone! We wish you an abundant and amazing 2012.

Kathy McCabe, Producer, and the entire 'Good Ol' Freda' Team
