We made it to Los Angeles, hooray!!! We've got just two more days left in our trip - today we shoot our last two interviews here in LA and then tomorrow we wrap up with a little celebration party and most importantly, the end of our Kickstarter fund raising campaign
We just passed the $10k mark in our campaign but we still need to raise another $1,649 in the next 34 hours or we won't get anything from Kickstarter. For better or worse it's an all or nothing deal! So it's now or never - please donate and help us bring this puppy home! If every one of you reading this gave just $10, we'd easily meet our goal and then some. That's less than what many of us spend on a lunch. Even better, give $20 and I'll send you a unique thank you postcard I picked up on the road (and even cooler souvenirs for $50 and up).
This project is what I like to think of as 'people powered' in the truest sense of the word, both in who we are shooting and how we are pulling it off. There is no studio or corporate backing for this. You, the fans, are the ones making this happen with your pledge as much as we are, pounding the pavement out in the field. So for those of you who have given, A HUGE THANKS!!! This trip has been tremendously gratifying as we've met so many cool and interesting people in a way that has gone really deep, touching our lives and theirs.
I just updated all our travel diaries, so catch up on all the great stories about our exploits on our blog, and If you want to hear more about the backstory of the project and how we set it up, check out this great feature Film Courage just wrote on me.
I hope you'll join us on this great adventure and sit back with a smile when then new episodes come out in the fall, knowing you helped play a part in it.
Thanks for everything, you guys rock... our country rocks,
Here's the Thing...
