7 Days of Support

I am so thankful for the outpouring of support from those who’ve contributed from near and far. The majority of those who’ve donated to my campaign, are people I’ve never met.. nor had a conversation, which is actually the opposite “statistic” for fundraising.

According to statistics, most dollars used would usually come from your “warm network” (family and friends). Although a hand-full of my “warm network” has contributed, I was not blessed with an abundance of a supportive “warm network”. I can only be honest (especially for those who’ve asked).

Given that the majority of my 67 donors believed in and trusted me enough to support me, is a humbling experience. The work I create as an artist is my contribution to the world for social good. And though life will always have obstacles, I am do my best to continue the journey.

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”

I ask that you join me for the next 7 days and support my crowdfunding campaign to help me reach as close as possible to my goal.

There are two ways to help:
1. Contribute – Ask your network to pre-order copies of the DVD and/or book via the crowdfunding campaign. Even small contributions raise the popularity and give it more visibility on the site.
2. Post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and others -In the end, the more people hear about them, the more likely they are to meet their target. Here’s the link – https://igg.me/at/MoreThanMyHair

I’ll do the hard work for you. Simply copy and paste the posts below:

Coming to a close.

I can’t believe that the end of my 30 day campaign is almost near. Anyone who has ever launched a crowdfunding campaign, or a fundraiser in general, knows that you don’t get much sleep. You spend much of your time networking, doing outreach, organizing speaking opportunities, following -up, marketing, follow-up, follow-up and still follow-up.

After all, it’s worth it in the end.

Reaching my fundraising goal is my target of course. However, the connections made and awareness raised, about female hairloss, has been a truly rewarding experience.

To help recharge my energy, it definitely helps when I venture out and meet various women for filming and photoshoots. It’s also refreshing that each participant’s meeting place is usually located someplace differently each time.

Spontaneity is a beautiful thing!

Here’s a short video I captured, with my cell phone, during a brunch with Sisters with Alopecia Group (SWAG) at Bus Boys and Poets. Aren’t they gorgeous!
