As my regular readers know, Jason and I have been working toward opening our dream business, Pointless Brewery & Theatre. We are in the middle of a super exciting and nerve-wracking fundraising campaign through Kickstarter. For those of you who aren't familiar with Kickstarter, it is a website that gives artists a platform to get the word out to a large audience about their project, and people can make donations (pledges) to help make this project come to life.
The awesome/terrifying thing about Kickstarter is that if you DON'T make your goal, you lose all the pledges.
Let me say that again...
You lose ALL THE MONEY.
So far we have raised over $37,000 and have more than 300 people from around the world supporting our project. All that love feels pretty amazing.
Here's the harsh part: we need to hit our $50,000 goal by April 20 or we will lose over $37,000.
Yikes. Please don't let that happen. If you haven't watched our video and learned about our project yet, take a moment now to do so. It's worth it, I'll wait. Just click here: http://kck.st/1EEAQ08
Now comes the fun part, and why I quoted WarGames above.
Will you play a game with me? It's called the Pointless Challenge, and here is how it works:
- Post a picture of something that makes life less pointless.
- Pledge to the Pointless Kickstarter campaign http://kck.st/1EEAQ08
- Tag 3 friends to do the same.
The picture can be anything that makes you smile, that makes you happy, that gives you that giddy-in-the-tummy feeling, that makes your soul sing. It can be complex, it can be simple.
So, will you join me? Share on your Facebook wall, post to Twitter. Invite your friends to take a moment out of life to remember what's important.
