Final Push with 8 Days to go! We are at 55% of our goal

Posted by Bayete Ross Smith (Creator)

I have arrived at Franconia Sculpture Park and started the process of collecting songs and memories from members of the local community. So far I have 27 songs and two memories for the Minnesota mixtape. I have also began collecting used boom boxes. Franconia's location, right outside Shafer, Mn is pretty rural. So it has been somewhat difficult to get boom boxes, simply because of transportation. I already have about 56, which is great! However I would like to have at least 90 more. 

There are 8 days left in this Kickstarter campaign. So everyone please Pledge, share the link to this project with others and even donate a boombox you don't need. As you know, with Kickstarter you either meet your goal, or you get nothing so I need everyone more than ever over the next week. I would really like to be able to reward my backers and supporters for all their generosity.

Thank you very much to all my backers and people who have supported this project by simply spreading the word! I am especially grateful to those of you who have helped connect me to folks in the Twin Cities  and everyone in the Twin cities area who have helped and encouraged me since I've been in Minnesota.
