WE DID IT!!!!!! + Stretch goals!
WE MADE OUR GOAL!!!
[confetti explosions, bass drums, cymbal crashes, high-fives!!!]
Thank you for ensuring that this album is going to be heard :) I can't wait to get back in the studio and get this thing DONE!!!
A massive shout-out to my friend Kipchoge Spencer who inspired the biggest day of donations in the whole campaign with his eloquent and whuptastic offer to match all donations raised in a 24 hour period. The donations that poured in + his matching gifts took us past the goal! This, is the magic of community power, and I'm humbled.
NOW, until the campaign ends, all the money raised beyond the original 12k goal will go toward actualizing the "Ecotopia Now!" high school assemblies and bike-music tours. Strrrrretch goals!!!
Please take a second, and share this post on Facebook, and let's put some whup on these last couple days!!!
I also added a $700 electric guitar (Fender Frankenstrat) to the Kickstarter rewards, thanks to one of my dearest friends, the incomparable musician Benjamin D. Hale. You can see/hear Ben making the monster-instrument roar in the video he made announcing its donation to the campaign. It's got "mojo for days!" If you or someone you know is considering getting an electric guitar, this is a tremendous instrument.
Also, earlier in the week, I recorded another "Youtube karaoke" video to promote the campaign: Phantom of the Opera "Music of the Night." Thanks to community power it's got 33 shares and 1.7k views! That's another great post to share to spread the word!
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP! 2 DAYS LEFT! LET'S KEEP IT GOIN'!!!
