New goal: $7,500
We raised enough money for the short bus but we still have a ways to go with the conversions. See the cost below! Let's see if we can meet a NEW GOAL: $7,500! New prizes once we get it!
A SHORT BUS TO RUN ON USED VEGGIE OIL
If you don't have time to watch the video you probably don't have much time to read. So I'll make it brief.
My musical project, Briar Rabbit, has been doing very well in Chicago in the 4 months since it's release. Briar Rabbit has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, The Red Eye, Taste of Chicago, numerous Chicago music blogs and just signed with local management Wine from the moon. In an effort to keep that momentum going, I am raising money for transportation so we can play more shows and tour the midwest/US. It's extremely expensive to play full band shows and we've have had to turn down some cool opportunities. Our solution is a Short School Bus that we will convert to run on vegetable oil. It fullfils our responsibility to the environment and makes touring more financially feasible. So be a part of something cool and help me see how far we can take this musical career.
You can donate any amount of money you'd like. Every dollar counts.
How will the money be spent?
Used Short bus: about $4000. Since it's used it's hard to pin down one.
Repainting (It's illegal to leave it yellow if you're not a teacher): $100
Remodeling: $1000 (Repainting, installing cages so gear doesn't move around, Removing seats, fixing parts)
Veggie oil Conversion Kit plus installation: $5,600
Driving over to ohio to get it installed: $150 (Diesel is expensive)
-I will keep everyone up to date on the conversion (Think "Pimp My Ride" with less experience).
-Provide an account of where your money was spent.
-Release a new song demo for every $1000 that has been donated to the people who have donated.
