Only two days left! Please join me!
This is a photo of me sitting at my computer, because I now live there. Seriously. And I have great news! Yesterday I reached my first goal of my Kickstarter! That means my project is definitely funded!
And now I have less than $4400 to reach the first stretch goal!
Here's the first one: If I reach $30,000, I will send everyone who backed the project a link to download one of the nearly finished songs from the album now, instead of making you wait until October. It will be yours to listen to right now! I mean it! Like the day the Kickstarter ends! The rest of the stretch goals are here.
You may be asking, "Ellis, with only 2 days left, how can you reach these stretch goals?" Well my hope is to reach a LOT more people. If I can just achieve the same number of backers as last time - 619 - I think I can do this. Right now as of this writing, I have 407 backers.
I am hoping to reach 5 people more from every state in the US, and 30 people from other countries in the world. In the last two days since I started this campaign, 53 more people joined. Only 200 more to go!
The top states so far have been Minnesota (13), Texas (6), Massachusetts(4), New York(3), Colorado(3), and North Carolina(2). And one person each from these locations have joined: California, Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Germany, Scotland, Cayman Islands, and Cancun.
If you have friends in these or the other places, please share this link with them and let them know they can still be a backer and pre-order my record (and get it months in advance of the official release date).
I'm hoping this will be a fun way to spend the remaining two+ days (60 hours) of this campaign!
Don't forget, I can make a BRAND NEW reward for you if you want to increase your pledge. Just text me your idea at 612-998-2355 or email me. Thank you SO MUCH for being on team ellis!
Also, if you've been missing the FB Live videos, here's one where my daughter and I sing the cat-fee song.
Thank you again if you've pledged already for being a backer!
Daily Trivia Give-Away on Facebook!
Just a reminder, I have been hosting a trivia give-away every day this week on Facebook around 9pm central time!
Today's trivia questions:
1. What types of merchandise have I sold at shows besides CDs?
2. What have I been selling this whole year that I did not create but I very much want to support? (Hint: It's not music related)
Bonus entry: If you post a photo of any of these items that you personally own!
I broadcast live on FB every day at 9pm central. I hope to see you there!!
so much peace, love and music,
