    An Actual, Literal Shout Out

    Okay, look. These are really sensitive, serious, heavy subjects we're dealing with here; we have to infuse levity into this somehow. And how: Backers at this level will receive AN ACTUAL, LITERAL SHOUT OUT--you'll get a video of Melanie shouting personalized thank yous (you know...shout outs). And make no mistake, she's not making it a copout by doing this in the privacy of her own home--these will absolutely be done at the very least outdoors, if not in a public place with people around. (Well, maybe not that last part--we'll see how brave she's feeling.) You'll get all Contributor Level awards as well.
