Calling All Cinemaniacs!: Day 9
Good afternoon Cinemaniacs!
Here’s an awesome update on the campaign – we broke the $1,000 mark this morning! I cannot express either my deep gratitude or my amazement at the support that Calling All Cinemaniacs! has received.
Here’s the part where I get mushy. The experience of having this nutty idea, launching an Indiegogo campaign for Calling All Cinemaniacs!, and asking people – some of whom I know very well, and some of whom I don’t – to pony up and make it happen has been both terrifying and exhilarating. It is on the one hand nerve wracking to wait for a contribution to roll in and over-the-moon exciting when it does. Doing this is, in short, both stressful and amazing. (Which explains the over sleeping!)
Most of all, this process has been humbling. I’m not a person who walks around thinking I’m all that great in the first place. I am a person who throws caution to the wind sometimes, and just decides to do something. You might suspect that every dollar donated would be a tiny little burst of ego inflation. I assure you, it is not. Every dollar that is contributed humbles me just a bit more. I cannot believe my great good fortune in having so much support, so much encouragement, and so much faith from the people around me.
To paraphrase a great movie: I thoroughly examined her, and she’s not only merely thankful, she’s really most sincerely thankful.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Now – please keeping clicking, sharing, referring, liking and Tweeting!
