WOW!! DUDE BACKERS ARE THE BEST BACKERS ON KICKSTARTER!

In a matter of days you've taken us to being 2/3rds funded and $50,000 in pledges! A Hollywood editor friend said he thinks you're about to take our project to viral-like activity -- and then he became a backer, too (thanks, Jeff)!

We're gonna need a little of that viral action if we're gonna make our goal -- $25K in 5 days! Lots of Kickstarter projects get most of their funding in the closing days of a campaign; with your help, I think we can do it!

So please keep sharing our link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1674889308/a-defiant-dude

SNEAK PEEK AT MORE FOOTAGE FROM 'A DEFIANT DUDE'

We had so much great footage of Bo, that I could only fit a tiny bit into our 2 1/2 minute trailer. So here are a couple more clips of Bo's interview, plus some beautiful footage of he and his foster son crossing a bridge near his home in Montpelier.

NEW REWARD! FREE MOVIE TICKETS + POPCORN = SWEET TIME!

Hey all you Montpelier, Vermont folks -- the incredible Savoy Theater on Main Street has donated 10 pairs of tickets to any movie playing at the Savoy plus a free popcorn (thanks Savoy Theater!). We've combined their donation with one of Bo's t-shirts plus a download of the movie to make a great reward at $85.

Check out the reward here and spread the word (hurry, only 10 of these available).

THANK YOU, KIZZI!

Thank you to one of our backers, Kizzi Collier, who sent us this picture of her in front of a Chick-fil-a with her 'Eat More Kale' t-shirt!

SAY HELLO!

When you get a chance, check in with us in the comments section on our home page and say 'hello' -- we'd love to hear from you! And then, if you could, think of one person who could use a little bit of inspiration, and encourage them to become a backer of our film. 

Hey, we're gonna have some fun!
