Hello Awesome Backers of A DEFIANT DUDE!

The 375th richest man in America owns Chick-fil-a, a couple billion dollars, and one of the coolest cars ever built --- the Batmobile from the 1992 movie, Batman Returns.

But one thing he doesn't own is an EAT MORE KALE t-shirt!

If we reach 25K in pledges, Bo will personally make Mr. Cathy, the owner of Chick-fil-a, one of his signature EAT MORE KALE t-shirts, then send it to Chick-fil-a headquarters in Atlanta, and sign it 'From Bo and the nearly 400 Backers of A DEFIANT DUDE'

Who knows? Maybe Mr. Cathy will pose wearing his new EAT MORE KALE t-shirt next to what Forbes magazine calls, "one of the ultimate toys of super-rich boys."

Thank you for forwarding our link to friends, family and Facebook! You've been awesome at doing this! But can you please do it some more? We'd love it if you could post our link a couple more times this weekend -- it's such a huge help!

Think about it: chances are, you first heard about us on Facebook. So far, from the stats that Kickstarter sends us, Facebook's been responsible for connecting us to nearly 2/3rds of our backers! So please keep posting our link on Facebook! We'll love you even more for it!

And, as always, THANK YOU for being a backer of our film!

**Wanna know more about Mr. Cathy's Batmobile? You can read about it here and here.

      Sent a letter to PETA, maybe we'll get some more positive press

      To Everyone at PETA

      This letter is regarding the harassment of a business owner promoting the consumption of seaweed on T-shirts. Chick-Fil-A is currently harassing a Vegetarian T-shirt maker for making shirts in Vermont with the statement Eat More Kale on the front. His cause is on Kickstarter.com and I have shortened the link to http://7nk.it/defiant it's on Kickstarter as "A Defiant Dude". I believe it's a worthy cause and deserves some more positive press especially from people who care about the mistreatment or slaughter of innocent animals vs the cutting of Kale. I supported him and I think he deserves PETA's support. Chick-Fil-A should not be able to block people from using the words Eat and More by harassing small business owners trying to make a living and promote their way of life in such an innocent fashion.

      I ate kale last night! I hope to eat more kale tonight! I always feel so great after eating kale. Thank you sooooo much Defiant Dude for all of your work on this! Have you ever tried the "Bombay Curry" kale chips? Soooo yummy!
