As I previously reported here last month, my play WTC VIEW is getting its off-Broadway debut this spring at 59E59 Theaters. To make this happen, today is the start of a 6-week fundraising campaign to raise $25K by the end of April and we need your help.
This is not a traditional fundraising campaign. The traditional model is all about finding the smallest number of large donors. But with crowd-sourcing it's the reverse: We are looking for the largest number of small donors via social networking, with the hope that we can get 1,000 donors kicking in 20 bucks as opposed to 20 donors with a 1,000 bucks. Not many people have a cool grand lying around these days. But a $20...or even a $10? That's a little easier to swing. Also, since we are a fiscally sponsored project through Fractured Atlas, donations to WTC VIEW are tax deductible too.
So please check out our campaign which went live today on IndieGoGo. I also put together a short video in which I talk about my inspiration for WTC VIEW and why I feel strongly that now is the time to bring this show to New York audiences as we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11. However, the only way this is going to happen....I repeat the ONLY way....is if you give. WTC is a small non-profit play at a non-profit theater and we are depending on these tax-deductible dontations for our production budget. The other thing you can do, that would be a huge help, is share our IndieGoGo campaign with your Facebook friends of Twitter follows and LIKE our Facebook page as well.

Thanks so much and stay tuned for more updates on the show, including casting news, and also some more videos too.
