Update #2

AABG Selected as Kickstarter Staff Pick!

Comment

Howdy from New York City!

Today, is day 7 of our 30 day Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to 94 amazing donors, we’ve already raised $7,352! We’d love to hit 100 backers by the end of the day today and reach 20% of our goal ($10,000) in the next couple of days. Please help us do so by telling your friends that you support AABG and so should they!

Lots of exciting new to share. Awesome Asian Bad Guys became a Kickstarter Staff Pick! What’s a staff pick? Kickstarter’s website says they’re “projects we like, and think you will too. They’re creative, inspiring, and fun.”
Hurray! It’s an honor for our project to be recognized by Kickstarter, and we’re looking forward to more people finding AABG this way.

Our Kickstarter project has also gotten the stamp approval from these cool folks:

Our live streaming telethon on Friday was our most successful to date. We raised $300 during the live broadcast, which included several fun challenges we accepted, including singing Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna To Sex You Up.” And then amazingly 10-minutes after it ended, a very generous person contributed a whopping $1000! Wow, that was really amazing. Thank you to everyone who joined us and who contributed!

The same day as the telethon, we were in Times Square, shooting an AABG video update. Some dude came up to us and asked, "Are you the Asian bad guys from Kickstarter?" Yes, we are! Word is getting out there thanks to all of your support!

Lastly, thanks to everyone who joined us for our anniversary party here in New York. It was a lot of fun hanging out with old friends (like Joy Osmanski!) and meeting new ones.

Get ready for our next appearance, which is on My Damn Channel’s live show today, Monday, at 4pm ET / 1pm PST here:

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to AABG and shared the project! Please continue to help us spread the AABG Kickstarter link, so we can make AABG a reality.
