The Canadian Frame(lines) Fundraiser!

8 Jul

WOOOOOOOO-EEEEEEEEEEE! It’s been a long time and I don’t even have a great excuse for my absence.  Okay, I don’t even have a good excuse.  But all that should matter now is I’m back to fill your rant needs, and irrational zombie apocalypse ramblings.  You are welcome!

Quick thank you to everyone who has been checking out the blog, despite the lack of posts.  Especially all the traffic towards the Magic Mike review.  It’s probably just a coincidence that the post discussing naked men is my top read post.

Okay, moving along to todays’ post.  Today’s a cheery post about a project that you may have read about before (https://coffeeandcrosswords.wordpress.com/2012/05/14/canadian-framelines/).  If you haven’t read my previous Canadian Frame(lines) blog, I encourage you to check that out for a better understanding and description of the project.  If you have, YAY!  Thank you 🙂

So a week ago on July 1st the Canadian Frame(lines) team celebrated Canada Day by hanging out at Granville Island and launching our online fundraiser!  Alex and Ryder are asking for $30,000 in 45 days, and so far we’re at $2,617 meaning we have…$27,383 left to raise in 39 days  So here’s where you lovely people come in…

If you love Canada, film, documentaries, or even just supporting two AMAZING people then please please PLEASE donate whatever you feel comfortable with donating!  $1/$5/$10 may sound like a little in comparison, but EVERYTHING helps.  Right now we’re at a crucial stage where we’d like to just receive as many donations as possible to help encourage those who may be holding back.  Also, the more donations we get (regardless the value), the more likely the project will be featured on IndieGogo’s home page.  So just by donating $1 you could do wonders for the project! AND you’ll get a cool perk.

Okay, so at this point you’re either interested or you’re thinking “I’m not from Canada”.  I know this project is Canadian focused, but you don’t need to be Canadian – in fact, Ryder (one of the co-producers) isn’t from Canada either! – all you need is a love for film or exploration. Or maybe you’re just interested in Canada and learning more.

Obviously, we’d appreciate any kind of donation, but if you can’t donate there are other ways you can help.  You can SHARE, TWEET, and/or EMAIL the campaign to all of your friends.  The more traffic we get on the site, the better, and hopefully there will be others in your network interested in donating.  It would be appreciated that anyone with a blog share the campaign on their blog, and if you’re interested you could write a response to “What is Canadian identity” to join the discussion.  Even if you don’t have a blog, you can join the discussion via poetry, video, photography, etc by emailing CanadianFramelines@gmail.com.

More ways you can help are listed on the IndieGogo page — http://www.indiegogo.com/canadianframelines

It’s really important to me that all of you do the most that you can for this project, whether that be donating or promoting it.  I only joined the project back in December, so my encouragement is completely unbiased.  If I didn’t believe in this project, I can guarantee I wouldn’t have come aboard.  These are genuinely great people wanting to do something great for Canada and its citizens.  And what’s more, we’ve never before seen anything like this.  I’m excited to see where Canadian Frame(lines) takes us and what we learn along the way, and hopefully you are too.  I look forward to seeing you all join the journey!
