As my friend Anna Dagmar says, I don't believe in the starving artist mentality. If you really want to do something creative in your life, go after it and make it happen.

IT'S CHANUKAH SONG AND VIDEO

Billboard Award Winning Singer and Songwriter Jeffrey Paul Bobrick throws his hat into the ring to write a holiday song and make an amazing music video.

8 REASONS TO CONTRIBUTE (8 reasons, because Chanukah has 8 nights -- get it?)

1. We are friends!

2. You like me!

3. You are Jewish!

4. You're not Jewish, but you're "Jew-Friendly"

5. You know that "Oy" is "Yo" to a dyslexic person.

6. You believe that, as Brecht said, “Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it" and think that quote is somehow relevant to your donating to this project.

7. Who's a cutie? Who's a cutie? YOU! You're a cutie! Awwwwww!

8. You discovered when reading my "8 Reasons To Contribute" that Irving Berlin, a Jew, wrote "White Christmas" and wonder/hope that I might write a Christmas standard of that quality in the future.

A NOTE ABOUT KICKSTARTER: We will only receive funds (and you will only be charged for your donation) if we reach our minimum goal. It's okay to exceed the goal, but on February 15th, if we haven't met the minimum, no money will be transacted. Time is ticking...thanks so much!
