Thank you!

Comment

Hello Backers.

I LOVE you guys. Thank you! - You are the first 109 Backers so far for the the Tableau Tour campaign! Now that we have a little bit of momentum, we are going to take the campaign to blogs and acquire publicity in the next few weeks. I did an interesting interview with Daniel Kushner this morning, which hopefully will be running in the Huffington Post early next week. FINGERS CROSSED. And... I met two very interesting folks this weekend, who should be instrumentally helpful with circulating this campaign... We just sent the TABLEAU SOUNDTRACK PREVIEW to my list and will start circulating this on Facebook shortly.

Can you each please spread the word to a few different people you know? Can you choose your lucky number and send it to THAT many people. I really believe in numbers and the power of imagination!... I think this will help!

Can you ask them to contribute $25 or more if they are able?? (and of course, only if you feel comfortable doing so)... This is the music they will receive if we reach our goal! 

I know we can do it!

Thank you again... Thank you again. Thank you again.
