    Cover Your Neighborhood In Hotness

    Support our campaign, and we'll email you electronic postcards of all the haiku images so that you're free to tape them on your walls, drop them in your neighbors' mailboxes, or post them at your local library, university or church.

    You don't have to have a lot of money to bring joy to strangers in the form of Asian American male hotness.

    Haiku For Peace (With Hotties)

    Our friends over at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) have coincidentally launched a campaign called Haiku for Peace (https://www.facebook.com/events/1572559833008065/). where they are asking people to write a haiku about peace to post on their wall for the 70th Anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In mid-September, copies of the haiku will be sent to Hiroshima and Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Choose this reward and for each $8, Ada will personally find a hottie to write a Haiku for Peace for this excellent project. She will start with the hotties on the Haikus With Hotties calendar. Then she will start shamelessly emailing her random hottie friends and acquaintances, contacting publicists who can link us to other celebrity hotties, or asking random hotties on the street -- depending on how many hotties she will have to find to fulfill her promise. And she will document it for you all.

    The Sudarso Special

    Like the hotness you see in our Kickstarter photo and video? Pick this option, and we'll send you a special-edition POSTER of their haiku photo. The epic one of them emerging out of the water, holding pelican and zebra floaties. It's pretty hot. And it'll look even hotter giant-sized on your bedroom wall.

    (FIRST 25 WILL BE AUTOGRAPHED BY THE BROTHERS THEMSELVES)

    Had to factor in shipping costs, but to make up for it, you can choose a WILD CARD NOMINEE for the calendar, even though it's technically past the deadline. (They'd still need to get the votes, same rules apply, but at the very least, you can point us to other hot men we should know about. Email it to me at ada@audreymagazine.com.)

    Video Option #4: A Hot Lesson in Haiku

    "The plural of haiku is haiku, not haikus!" This reward is for the traditionalist, who thinks we need to learn a thing or two about the art of the haiku. Choose this option, and we will take one of our Hotties to study with a haiku expert so that we can ensure that at least one of the 12 haiku exchanges meet your standards (to the best of our abilities, at least). And we'll film this lesson and put your name in the credits.

    The $50 NOMINATION/PROTEST

    There are only 5 slots left in our calendar, and you're horrified that we are not considering your favorite hottie. Because YOUR PICK is clearly hotter than any of these other guys, and it's not a real Haikus With Hotties calendar if we don't include him.

    $50 to protest and email ada@audreymagazine.com with your favorite hottie and a photo.

    Why is a nomination so expensive? Look, we really like our 10 picks, so if you're going to try to displace one of them, you better be serious. It better be someone who you think is so hot that they can gain enough votes to properly get our attention, even with a late start. So choose carefully.

    We will send campaign updates alerting supporters any time there is a new nomination they can vote for on Twitter, and if it's clear that you are right and we were remiss in excluding said hottie, we will do our best to pester him into exchanging haikus with us.

    (But wait, there are already so many hotties for such few slots, so clearly there's no space for MY GUY to be on the calendar! Never fear, kind supporter. Not all of the options above will be convincible. Hot guys are not that easy to attain.)

    A Pair of Tickets to KoreAm/Audrey's Annual Unforgettable Gala to Stalk Some Hotties

    Come to KoreAm/Audrey's annual awards gala in December 2015 (Date TBD; travel to LA not included) where there are usually at least 20 celebrity hotties in attendance -- with the honorees, performers, and red carpet guests. (http://iamkoream.com/koream/community-events/unforgettable/)

    Ada will be your personal wingwoman for the night and take your photo with as many hotties as possible. We'll try to set a record for most photos Ada has ever taken of strangers posing with other Asian American celebrity strangers in one night, and we'll be successful. It'll be fun.
