BREAKING: As I finished writing the post below, Jennifer issued the following challenge:
Can you give $10?
As I’m sure you know, we are running a Kickstarter campaign to fund our latest film. The $12,500 we are raising will help us to finish the editing and post-production process, market and distribute the film, and premiere it in key locations.
As of this writing, 47 people have already given, many of them anonymously, and we are very, very grateful for each and every gift. THANK YOU!
We are 52% funded! We need to raise an additional $5,879 in the next 11 days to meet our goal.
So many people tell us that they have benefited from our work—our films, our writing, our speaking, etc. If everyone who follows us on social media or reads our website or receives our emails would give $10—just $10—we would completely blow this fundraising campaign out of the water.
My challenge, then, is this: can you give $10?
Let me also note, the way Kickstarter works, if we do not raise the whole $12,500, we won’t receive anything (and you will not be charged). I know you won’t let that happen!
What this means, though, is that you’re making a pledge. You won’t be charged until the campaign closes on June 30 at noon. So if you’re waiting for your credit card billing to cycle or whatever, please go ahead and make that pledge so we’ll know it’s coming.
Again, thank you to all who have already given, and thank you in advance to those who will give!
