I know you are busy people, how badly you NEED to be organized, and that you probably like to support strong awesome ladies, so I wanted to tell you about my project, the Ladies of Heavy Metal 2014 Calendar and Resource guide. The calendar will feature the Ladies of metal. This project is really important to me, even if you can only spare a dollar, I (and all the ladies) would totally appreciate it! There is only 33 hours left (as of this email) so don’t delay!!!! If you like what were doing, please share with your friends. We need all the support e can muster.
I am making this project through Kickstarter, and if you don’t know what Kickstarter is yet, I’ve put a short description at the end of this message. Think of it as pre-ordering something, but something that has to be fully funded to get made. Plus you only get charged if and when we reach full funding. I know it looks glum, but I have a backer who says he will cover the rest if I reach $1500!
I will be the photographer, designer, and printer of this calendar, and I am making postcards too! Again, this project is really important to me, even if you can only spare a buck, please do! These calendars will feature women who live, work, and thrive in the Heavy Metal Community. You know a few already! Each month will feature one Heavy Metal lady, a photograph of her unique headbanging style, a short biography, and links to all the awesome stuff she does. It will also serve as a resource guide for finding different blogs, journals, books, products, and services that are both heavy metal awesome and done by women. The goal of the calender is to spot-lite the amazing women of metal and all that they do.
Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.Each project is independently created. The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control over and responsibility for their projects. Kickstarter is a platform and a resource. Anyone can launch a project on Kickstarter. Together, creators and backers make projects happen. Project creators set a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing — projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. All-or-nothing funding might seem scary, but it’s amazingly effective in creating momentum and rallying people around an idea. So if you like what you see, spread the word!
