We have a very unique community. One that works very hard on a myriad of projects.
We live in “comedy small markets,” so for something big to get done, we often have to do it ourselves. This is a great “problem” to have, though, as it keeps the creators in control of what their vision is. The downside to that is we often have to hold fundraisers or run Kickstarters to help make these dreams come true.
The upside to that, though, is that our community is so large that every TNM project that needs Kickstarter shouldn’t have any problem meeting their fundraising goals.
Imagine if every student and alumni contributed $5-15 to each one of the below Kickstarters and every single Kickstarter that comes up in the future. That’s the kind of power we have as a community. Imagine if everyone who is dreaming of a web series or festival or tour or production is able to rely on the community to help make those dreams come true?
That would be pretty incredible.
So, we ask you – can you donate to each of the Kickstarters below? Remember, the money doesn’t come out of your account until the end of the campaign. $5 would be wonderful. $10 would be absolutely amazing. $15? Are you crazy? Yes, you are.
