WE DID IT!!!

Holy freaking crap FULLY FUNDED!
Further excitement expressed in subtitle!!

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! Wedidit! THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUUUUUUU!!!!

That is what my brain has been doing all day. Tuesday was UNBELIEVABLE. The entire length of my Freedom Victory Tour Indiegogo campaign has been unbelievable! Ok I’m going to make a list of the things that I can’t believe:

  1. We actually made it happen!
  2. We actually made it happen at the very last moment!
  3. You all came together to absolutely explode your social networks for me!
  4. Narwhals (I mean, seriously. Photoshop. Has anyone ever seen one in real life?)
  5. The huge outpouring of love through the whole campaign!
  6. 1,486 contributors?!
  7. You guys have allowed me to make the Freedom Victory Tour a reality!
  8. There are actually other people as excited about this as me?!
  9. Tons of people felt like crap at work yesterday. (Because they stayed up late with me to see this through together!)
  10. Over $10,000 in one day!!
  11. I get to send you koozies as a bonus perk for $35k! When were were at $30k, a friend of mine laughed and said “those koozies may be a pipe dream”. (He’s not a jerk. I actually agreed with him.) I’m happy to have the honor of mailing my non-jerk friend a pipe dream.
  12. I get to send you pint glasses as a bonus perk for $40k!! Ok, that one was DEFINITELY a pipe dream. A dream that came to life and hit me in the face like a pipe! (That almost made sense.)
  13. Did I mention… We actually made it happen!!
  14. I still don’t have to put on pants!

To everyone that gave me their love, excitement, dollars and positivity, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. (The bottom of my liver says “screw you”, though.) Seriously, I am humbled by the support you’ve given and so grateful to everyone that helped make this a reality. I’m stunned that so many people worked so hard for me in the final hours. Wow.

I can’t wait to come celebrate with you IN PERSON!! Come say “hi!” on Facebook so we can keep the awesome connections and conversations going as I’m pulling the tour together! This is only just the beginning. I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me and I’m excited to tackle it all knowing I have this amazing team of Power Hour League players behind me! Now I’m off to send you your perks and keep making more music and art to put out in the world! I’m now able to do these things because of YOU! Thank you!

I have ANOTHER present for you!

Only a few hours left! LET’S GO!
Also… freakin’ pint glasses are awesome!

OMG!!!Yesterday we passed $30,000!! And today we’ve passed $31,000!! This is totally possible, players. Let’s get this fully funded!! There are about 15 hours left to make it happen.Since I’m psyched to make the koozies I told you about yesterday, I’m making that a perk that you get when we hit $35,000. YAY! Aaaaand, I’m adding in a new perk for when we get fully funded! OFFICIAL PHL PINT GLASSES!!

pint glass
If we can all come together to make it happen, I’ll send one of these killer pint glasses to everyone that contributed at the second tier ($15) or higher. Plus you’ll also get the official PHL koozie! Win! Again, I’m only going to make these if we can reach our goal of $40,000 in time. LET’S DO THIS!!

There are currently 1,168 of us on this team of funders. Yay!! I love my team :) If even half of us can get someone to contribute at just the $30 level, WE’LL REACH OUR GOAL. Geez, $30 is totally doable and they’ll get the poster, koozie and the pint glass!!

So start spreading the word as much as you can. Reach out to your friends personally who you think would be into this and see if they want to be a part of what we’re building! Get them psyched to own a Shot Glass USB! Get them psyched to bring this Power Hour Party to you so we can party together!!

koozieSo remember:

  • Koozies at $35,000
  • Pint glasses at $40,000
  • You’re great. (Yes, you!)
  • I’m great.
  • Find some great friends to tell about this!

These next few hours are our final shot (PUN!) at making this happen. COME ON, PHL!! Let’s make some magic together!

Power Hour League… LET’S. DO. THIS.

Campaign ends tomorrow night?!
THIS JUST GOT REAL.

Ok. There are on 33 HOURS left in the Freedom Victory Tour campaign. What?! We are 73% funded. That is not all of the percent. LET’S MAKE IT ALL OF THE PERCENT! Are you ready to get serious with me Power Hour League?? Can we raise $10,743 before midnight PT tomorrow?? Freakin’ YES! If we all work together to spread the word!

Ifffff we can make this happen, I will send every one of you one of these new, Power Hour League koozies to commemorate what a freaking awesome accomplishment we accomplished with our accomplishing-ness! Check it!

koozie

These babies will only exist if we can reach this goal together! And how awesome will it be to show off at your next Power Hour that YOU made it happen…

  • for Ali (That’s me!)
  • for the Power Hour League (That’s you!)
  • for FREEDOM! (That’s freakin’ sweet.)

I’m really excited to make these and really excited to spread the word with you guys and pull this campaign to an awesome finish! You guys can reply to this email directly to hit me up about anything. Have some last-minute excitement building ideas? Want a special perk that’s not on the list? Email me! I’ll be living on my laptop, not sleeping and campaigning hard until this is over. So say “Hi!” because I’m going to need some positivity as I’m working my butt off.

Ok, now get out there and get your friends excited about getting some sweet perks! Get them excited about what we’re building! A global Power Hour Party!
LET’S DO THIS!!

 

P.S. I do have to mention that I can’t mail koozies to the people that contributed at the $1 level, otherwise I’ll lose money. So look at this as incentive to up your dollar to something higher! You’ll get us closer to the goal and I’ll send you awesome stuff in the mail!!

Holy Halfway!

Update: WE DID IT!!! Thank you so much to everyone that helped make this happen!!


Yesterday I made a big goal to get my Indiegogo campaign halfway funded before Saturday. I’ve gotten much closer to the mark since then but there’s currently still $1,413 to go.

And now for the awesome developments: I just received this email…

What are the odds that you could make it to $19k by today? I’d be willing to kick in the last $1k to tip the scales past the half way mark. Whuddaya say? The halfway mark seems to be a solid goal.

Holy crap!! If I can get just $413 before tomorrow, this amazing contributor will get us the rest of the way to our goal!

So PLEASE! Help me out! Contribute! Or up your contribution to a bigger perk! And share my campaign on all your social networks! Link to www.indiegogo.com/powerhour! Let’s get to the all important halfway mark together!!
