What a great year 2012 has been! Our hearts are full with excitement, happiness, and gratitude after the resounding success of UNDERNEATH. Because of your attendance, your warm applause and your monetary gifts from near and far, our Kickstarter campaign was a success, our sound and light technicians and dancers will be paid, The Headwaters and Mizu Desierto will receive a little something for such generous support and mentorship, and we didn't even have to dip into our medical savings to cover show expenses!
If you have chosen to receive a reward, Never Fear! The rewards are still coming. We got caught up in the holiday flurry but we are now back on track and you can expect your reward soon. If you haven't already done so, please fill out the Kickstarter survey so we know where to send the rewards to.
To the wonderful 169 supporters,
THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! With your help, we surpassed our goal and raised a total of $5,314! We are so grateful for each and every one of you. To all our friends and family, Thank You! To fellow artists, Thank You! To our fellow starving artists without food stamps or health insurance who still found a way to contribute, Thank You! To the many of you that came to our show, Thank You! To the beautiful strangers near and far, Thank You! To everyone that shared our project, Thank You! You are all part of our little Wobbly world!
It is incredibly heartwarming to know that so many people around the world believe in Wobbly and our work. The love and support we have received in the last 30 days is amazing and overwhelming. This was truly a global effort!
In the next month we will be working on sending out everyone's rewards. Another email about that will be coming soon.
A lot of you have been asking us, so what's next for Wobbly? We are talking about doing another run of UNDERNEATH in Portland, possibly in the spring. We would also like to take the show on tour. So we are researching festivals and performance opportunities in US and abroad. If any of you have suggestions or connections, we would love to hear about them!
From the bottom of our Wobbly hearts, Thank You, thank you for supporting dreams this holiday season. Thank you for believing in us!

WE HAVE 100 AMAZING SUPPORTERS! This is truly a global effort. We are amazed and honored at the generosity and the support we have received. Support from people near and far, friends and family, artists, crips, people that we have never met, and people that we only know through facebook. YOU ARE ALL PART OF OUR WOBBLY WORLD! Our deepest gratitude to you!
We have added a new special $100 reward. Pledge any amount $100 or above between now and December 8 and receive 2 free tickets to our show (12/7 or 12/8), free drinks and snacks from the theatre bar and a vintage Wobbly poster. If you live outside of Portland and can't make it to the show, we will send you a DVD of the performance, a vintage Wobbly poster and a short personal video message, Wobbly style of course! You can also increase your pledge amount and choose this reward.
Please continue to share this project with everyone you know! And if you are in the Portland area, we do hope that you will come to the show 12/7 or 12/8.
