We’ve made the magical (?) half-way point of the campaign. Our little mini-goals have been moderately successful. The big push was our “half-way at half-way” mini-campaign. Our goal was to reach our funding mid-point at the half-way point in the campaign. Today’s the half-way point, and we were close – so close to making our mini-goal. We’ve reached the lofty heights of $3,540 and our goal was $3,750 today – only a teeny difference of $210. That’s only one Clarijs Bike Bag, and one Cateye Volt 100 light. So close …
We have a number of fine folks that have helped get us there too. Please give a hearty thanks to:
- Blair Shunk
- Ron Teather
- Jaron Lambert
- Natalie Sit
- S. Bissell
- Stuart Walker
- Dave Bennett
- Heather MacDermid
One of our perks, the regular buffs from Buff Canada, has already been sold out, and the winter buffs are almost gone – only one left right now and I bet it’s going to be snagged up in the morning – the race is on 😀.
Just a reminder that we have some very fine sponsors for our crowdfunding campaign who have generously donated goods and services to the cause. Please look for these products or stores on our campaign site, and in your community – Clarijs, Buff Canada, Ridley’s, Cateye and BikeBike.
We’ve also had a couple of sponsors that donated to the project. I blogged about Power-in-Motion before. You really need to check out their heated glove liners, the one that Ellen uses, although it hardly seems worthwhile these days. I’d also like to give a special shoutout to Alberta Bike Swap who will be handling the bike parking for the World Premiere next February, and have also donated generously to the campaign.
Just to finish off, here’s something that I think you all know already anyways, but A Study Finds Cyclists to Be Six Times Healthier than Other Commuters. Apparently, people who commute by bike are more likely to get the 150 minutes of moderate weekly exercise recommended by the WHO.
And remember to check out the BiciclesYYC crowdfunding site, donate generously if haven’t already, and tell all your friends and co-workers about the movie and our crowdfunding campaign.
