I now have 10-days left on my fundraising Indiegogo Campaign. Basically, I have pitched a project on an interactive website and shared the link with everyone I am connected to via social media and email.
Truthfully, I feel like I am holding a sign at the freeway ramp begging for spare change. Or maybe I am channeling my inner public radio announcer, pitching the pledge drive, knowing that everybody is flipping through stations looking for music.
My faith in humanity is steadfast, many of my friends and family have given. I just cannot find that magical place where the unknown masses have discovered my campaign and decided that I am worthy of their support. I am also finding that there is a certain age barrier in this online trolling. My project includes people over the age of 70. People whose peers are not as tuned in to things like social media campaigns. Folks less likely to use PayPal or to trust giving their credit card numbers to something named Indiegogo. I mean you can’t even trust Target these days.
Stay tuned, I will let you know how this drama ends in 10-days. And by the way, have you checked out my Indiegogo campaign site. I am doing a documentary on baby boomers and marriage equality and I could use your spare change.
