LOVETOWN PA hits the streets

Posted by Gene Schmidt (Creator)

Hi Everyone. I want to let you all know that we made our first trip to Philadelphia May 1-4 and had a great start to the project. The response from the people we met was very positive and welcoming. Several people expressed how happy they were to see an art project in their often neglected neighborhoods. We are planning to go back May 28-30 to continue on our way.

I also want to say thank you to those that have supported the project, even though our funding attempt here on Kickstarter was unsuccessful. The checks I have been receiving have been a great help, and your rewards will be sent after the project is completed. There is much left to do, and much left to pay for, so if any of you would still like to send in your support, please know that it is still needed and would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

WHAT NOW?

Posted by Gene Schmidt (Creator)

Some of you may be wondering what will happen to LOVETOWN PA now that the deadline has passed and funding was unsuccessful. Some of you have been asking if you can still support the project. The good news is I am going ahead with the project and you most certainly can support it. The same great rewards are available, we'll just handle the transaction like they used to in the old days: you send me a check, and I send you cool stuff.

I understand the reason for the all-or-nothing model Kickstarter uses, and I think it is a good idea, avoiding partially funded projects that may not be completed. I want you to know that I am committed to completing this project and would be so happy to see many, if not all of you, join me in this effort and redirect your support in this way.

Here is the address:

Please specify the reward you would like. Also, please include your email address, as well as shipping address if you are receiving a reward.

Thank you for your continued support.

Gene

Thank you all for your support.

Sadly, we did not reach our goal. I am disappointed, but hoping to go ahead with the project somehow. I guess the silver lining is I don't have to put on a Rocky sweatsuit and run up the Art Museum steps, although I was kind of looking forward to that. I want to thank you all for your generosity and willingness to support this project. It always made my day when I saw a new backer added to the list.

Please check my website, http://www.lovetownpa.com , for news about the project. It may take a couple weeks to figure out my "plan B", so check back in around the beginning of April to see what's happening. I may make some of the rewards available for purchase at some point, so you may get a second chance on those if you are interested.

Thank you

Gene

Thank You
