**********UPDATE ON REWARDS AND BACKING August 9, 2014**********
We are OFF and RUNNING! My first show with Martha Madison as my guest was a blast!
You will always be able to see my archived shows if you miss the live show!
This is my first Kickstarter project and after your feedback, I realized I wanted to offer more rewards and different levels of donations. I also learned this is some of YOUR first Kickstarter backing so I posted a pretty easy tutorial on how to be a backer on Kickstarter. You can find that here: http://www.slideshare.net/thublogger/how-to-back-a-kickstarter-project
Please check out the new rewards and levels! There is even a reward now where I will record an outgoing message for you and send you the file. BUT WHAT DO I DO IF I WANT TO CHANGE/ADD TO MY PLEDGE OR PICK ANOTHER REWARD LEVEL CHARLIE???!!! No Problem!! You can change the reward you have chosen before, by going to the project page and clicking on the blue button “Manage Your Pledge.”
Here are some photos of the rewards to give you an idea.
Though these do NOT have MY logo on them, the final rewards will. I have also added a limited number of photographs of me that a lot of you have asked for, in different combinations. This is a high quality photograph that I will personally sign and dedicate to you or the person of your choice.
SO NOW . . . ON TO MY NEW TALK SHOW .....
I believe that despite our addiction to "The Kardashians", singing contests and funny cat videos, we are an intelligent and thoughtful society. The problem is that we are never asked to really THINK about things. We are fed a "sound-bite" already pre-masticated for easy digestion, which we can then spout off to our friends or rePost on Facebook without having to think about it and still feel "smart."
In my new talk show "Here's A Thought....with Charles Shaughnessy," I want to change all that. From 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. (PST) every Thursday I will deliver one hour on the internet where you can see and hear me, that will inspire, challenge, confront...and make you think. Direct your browser to www.TradioV.com to listen and watch and you will be able to call, tweet or eMail the show LIVE to share those thoughts with me on the air!
But here's the deal.... everything worthwhile takes time, effort and money. My start-up costs are minimal, but they exist. I want to be able to hire a basic staff for research, publicity, marketing and logistics support. Until I can build an audience base ( and hence sponsorship,) I will have no revenues. That's why I am asking you guys to get involved on the ground floor. Send me a donation : it can be as small as $1:00, and be an early-adopter - an "original THOUGHTER!" Check out the list of donor rewards and decide just how far you want to go! If you have already pledged and picked, just go to the blue MANAGE MY PLEDGE button and change it. This show will only work if its YOUR show too!
Any entertainment project carries inherent risk as it relies wholly on the support of it's audience. My success depends entirely on YOUR enthusiasm and YOUR support for the project, and YES, YOUR donations here on Kickstarter,
Those of you who have followed me through the years will know that "HERE'S A THOUGHT..." will benefit and thrive from YOUR feedback, thoughts and reactions to what is being said on air. Whether you agree with me or not. I mean that! With your help I want to not only build a successful and popular show, but also make inroads into the way we all think ( or don't think,) about issues that should ( and do,) affect all of us.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges of this project will be if we don't have people participate by calling, tweeting and emailing and if we don't raise the money we need for funding.
My fans are the greatest, most loyal and thoughtful people - and I appreciate all of you. To all of you who have already donated and spread the word . . . THANK YOU!! I sincerely hope that you will come along with me on this new adventure: with your donations and your participation we are going to have one hell of a ride!! If every fan of mine gave me $1, we would more than meet our funding, for awhile! Please consider donating what you can. We will SO appreciate it!!
You have my undying gratitude and good THOUGHTS!!! :-)
