Update #3

Huge thanks to UPrinting.com ! We're at 99 Backers!

Comment

Firstly, a BIG BIG thank you to UPrinting.com, their UCommunity program has sponsored Search & Restore and contributed to the free printing of brochures to advertise our cause, so if you have any printing needs please head over to http://www.UPrinting.com , they've been incredibly supportive and do great things for the non-profit community.

We're at 99 backers! Don't you want to be the 100th backer? Yes, yes you do! Expect another great video from us in the next week, but for now, musicians from all over are contributing their 25 seconds to the cause, watch the videos here:

Thanks for the support, we're well on our way, keep telling people and we'll reach our goal!

Update #2

Are you a musician? Help us spread the word by filming a 25 Second improvisation!

Comment

It's easy and if everyone does it and posts it on their facebook page, it will bring our fundraiser to tons of new people! Just write "HelpJazz.com" on a piece of paper, hold it up in front of the camera, then improvise for 25 seconds.

call the video: 25 Seconds for $25, HelpJazz.com

and in the video description write:
"Film your own video of a 25 second improvised duet to help Search & Restore raise $75,000 to document the new jazz scene for the next year, donate $25 at Helpjazz.com!
Copy and paste this message for your own video's description and make your own welcome sign."

It will inspire your friends to make their own 25 second blasts and help spread the word. We can do this! 3,000 people give $25, we're there. Let's make it happen!

Thanks!
