Every project has a story, here's mine.
I created the website, dearabigail.net (A community for girls like you because we can't do it alone) in 2009. It was designed to become a positive community/website for young women where they could seek advice, and we could talk about everything having to do with being a woman! Here's an example of one of my videos
It then hit the top 6 on google for advice for teen girls and for teen girl communities.
I ended up being given a channel on Gabcast.tv's technology launch (created by Fred Silverman, former head of CBS, NBC, and ABC as well as Michael Eisner former CEO of Disney) for Hey Abigail (the new name) to do live shows that I did for about 4 months. They they went on hiatus to figure out what their next move was.
I was bummed...BUT Fred Silverman decided he wanted to develop a sitcom based around me and my website! So, we are currently in development for that. But, because I don't overload my site with ads I have amazing meetings coming up, with nothing on my heyabigail.com, only dearabigail.net.
Here's what I'm trying to do...
I want to expand dearabigail.net and make it much more interactive in its design on heyabigial.com. I want to allow girls to host their own shows, create their own profiles, and make the website a more positive alternative to the powerhouse sites like gurl.com.
I also want to continue my weekly shows that I did with Gabcast which include:
Get Fit With Abigail- A live in home workout with me and my trainer! The number one reason teen girls don't workout is because they are embarresed about sweating, and people watching them. In comes the alternative! I make a fool of myself, and they follow along at home.
Ask Abigail- The girls have the opportunity to ask me questions. (which they currently do on dearabigail) I then take the questions to counselors, wise women that I trust and deliver the advice back to the girls.
He Said/She Said- navigating our way through dealing/learning about the opposite sex with my lovely co host Johan.
What will the money go towards?
The money will go directly towards my fees for the website. I just need about this much more to make the site open! Any additional funding will go towards my my weekly webisode costs as well as marketing.
Thanks so much for your support!
Remember we can't do it alone,
