Kickstarting PASSING STRANGE
BIG NEWS #1 – The PASSING STRANGE fundraising campaign is kicking-off with a BANG! Our new Kickstarter campaign just launched with a rigorous goal of raising $5,500 by April 8th! Check out this sweet video of Director Lili-Anne Brown and lead actor Jayson Brooks talking about the project.
Kickstarter.com is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. With Kickstarter, you pledge your donation with a credit card, but your card is not charged unless we meet our $5,500 goal.
We don’t earn ANY money unless the goal is met. So we really need the help of YOU and your extended network to make this happen. Even if you can only spare $5, it will make a difference. And please, forward this on to your contacts who would be willing to spare a couple bucks, or a couple hundred bucks! Donations are tax deductible because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Go here to pledge your donation: http://kck.st/hTYOLP
I can see the names of everyone who donates. I pledge to publicly thank you when you donate! Just imagine — your name in lights on a Facebook posting!
This theatre company means SO much to us. None of us running this company are paid — we are all volunteering our time to help make this company a success. In these difficult times of funding for the arts, donations from people like you is making or breaking organizations like ours. If you can find it in your heart to give, we would really appreciate it.
And…ANY amount you donate will make you an automatic member of the Bailiwick Chicago Society, which you can find out more about at bailiwickchicago.com/loop.
