After Indiegogo

It’s now been 23 days since the end of the Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the “Doreen Brownstone Film Spectacular”.

This was our first ever foray into crowdfunding, and in the 40 days of the campaign, which took us over Christmas, the end of the deadline-for-tax-deductible-charities, and the credit-cards-are-now-due-for both those things season (the very worst time of the year to run a crowdfunding campaign, studies have shown), we raised over $16,000.  We also learned a lot, and amassed followers through Indiegogo, Facebook and Twitter,

As I have written previously, the goal of any crowdfunding campaign is twofold: certainly to raise funds, but just as importantly to raise awareness of, interest about, and participation in the project.

Since the campaign ended, we have continued getting requests from people who wanted to donate but could no longer do so through Indiegogo.

Indiegogo was an invaluable tool for us to set up the campaign and reach people we would not have otherwise. But just because that campaign is over does not mean that your chance to participate in the project with us is!

So, we have set up a donation page right here on our website.  Click here to get to it (you can also access it through the front page).  You can donate on line, or by cheque as you prefer.

Please check it out, and send us any feedback through the comments section, or by emailing this address. We’d love to hear from you.
