10 DAYS IN, WE'RE AS NEBBY & OPTIMISTIC AS EVER!

I apologize. I didn't understand that I could write a thank-you note like this to everyone like you who has pledged a donation to our NEBBY project on Kickstarter.

Thank you thank you thank you. 

The donations, the endorsements on social media, the kindnesses that have come from every corner of my life and from all over WQED's viewing area (and beyond!) have been amazing. And we've gotten off to a great start. 

As I write this first "update" we're at 61% of our goal. We're 10 days in. It definitely still seems possible to make our goal, but we continue to need a lot of help. 

Might I ask you to ask a friend or two if they know about the Rickstarter project? Sometimes we listen to our friends better than we listen to public TV producers!  If every donor got one friend to join us, we could reach our goal really fast! Think about it. Who do you know that has ever said they like "those Pittsburgh programs on WQED"?

Encourage them to check us out at rickstarter.org.

And thank you again! From the bottom of my heart. 

Now that I know how to make these updates, I'll probably do them more often.
