177 backers pledged $8,699 to help bring this project to life.

We're over 117% of the goal… In less than 48 hours.

I have many thank you notes to send off, starting tomorrow afternoon…

But, today I have to put finishing touches on the first feature. We've fundraised and covered the launching expenses. However, additional funding just helps us diminish the overall $100,000 we're going to raise from corporate sponsors.

Additional funds benefit sub-contractors (music, photographers, designers), an archival data storage system, website management/video delivery… So many things. You've helped the start. You've helped start to tell the stories, and support a project that employs artists. Sleep well tonight, and wake up energized with purpose tomorrow.

The story here is a tremendous one. You believe that Rockford's story needs to be told, and that this is an important project. Social proof. So, please — continue to look forward to the project. Continue to talk about the project. Continue support it. I'm thrilled the first step we took was a solid one. The more funding we gather here just further supports us in the search for corporate sponsorship.

This post doesn't even come close to describing the gratitude I feel towards my friends, and fellow citizens.

Humbly yours,

Pablo Korona.

      Saw this on one of my friends FB wall and just had to support you! I'm so glad to see that someone has taken the reigns and intends to show Rockford for what it really is-some place good! If there is ever a need for volunteers I hope you will think of me.
