Girls! Run The World...

How excited am I to share with you the first promotional video being released tomorrow for the LofHHF 2012 RUN THE WORLD SERIES. This is a series of promotional videos being done by crew members, performers and instructors from around the globe. All the videos will feature some version of Beyonce's song "Run the World". The dancers record a short combination or freestyle to their version and send it to me for editing. It's dope (amazing) to see how each group interprets their version of the song. We started with LofHHF two crew members from New York. Here is a a look at Soraya & Martina (Android) popping to a dubstep version of the  song. Enjoy!

The Finish Line!

We have 153 BACKERS$4,447 PLEDGED OF the $5,000 GOAL  and ONLY 7 DAYS TO GO! and We are only  $553 away from our goal!!! I have been fervently posting in hope that we reach our goal. However, we actually need to raise above and beyond the goal. 5% of raised funding goes to Kickstarter and another 5% goes to Amazon for a processing fee. Our annual budget is now about $15,000. We generate some funding via tickets sales, merchandise sales, and workshop registration but we have to secure this Kickstarter funding.

Kickstarter is all or nothing for the funding.  If we do not reach the goal, we do not receive a dime. THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP. You all have already generously donated your hard earned money to support our project and for that we are very thankful. Will you PLEASE join us and take a moment and send our kickstarter link to your friends and family asking them for their support and telling them why you donated. I believe this will help us tremendously. Below are two examples that you can cut and paste if you desire!

Example 1-  Dear ___________, Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival is an event that features the work of female Hip-Hop artists. The annual event takes place in July and includes visual artistry, dance performances, workshops and a battle. I've been to the event and the artist’s works are thought provoking, sophisticated, inspring and.... just amazing! Lets get a group of friends together to go the show but first, go to the link to help them raise money for their show.  Insert LofHHF kickstarter link: http://kck.st/xwiGc7 

For more information about the event go to www.ladiesofhiphopfestival.com and contact michele@ladiesofhiphopfestival.com

Example 2- Heeey__________, Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival is about to drop another year of their DOPE event celebrating women in Hip-Hop but, they need to raise funds to produce the event. You know I already pledged my support, even on my student/artist budget and I hoped you would be able to support too! LofHHF kickstarter link: http://kck.st/xwiGc7
