The wonderful promotional TV segment by journalist Alison Paul on Monday night has certainly provided a bit of a boost to Pledges made.
In case you missed it, here's the link here: www.nbnnews.com.au/2021/10/05/emile-mercier-cartoon-book-to-be-published/?fbclid=IwAR1f3B0oSnpEDolF1BZk4RJmhf02bsdMnqXHHHlYF9oRr9gaicJVP9sD46U
However, with less than three days to go -- and remember, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding platform that has to finish on the specified timeline -- the project seems to be stuck on 59% of required funding. I've certainly attempted to promote it within social media circles, and with email campaigns. I can't do it alone!
If there was a way of getting just ten of the National Cartoon Gallery's many sponsors willing to back $250 each in the "True Believer" level of support, we'd be almost funded!
Perhaps if each could be offered ten copies of the published book, an opportunity to attend the book launch and exhibition, a limited edition copy of one of Emile's cartoons: would that be tempting enough?
I'm even willing to put all people's names who have pledged into a draw at the launch, and offer my printer's proof copy of the book (a one of a kind) to the person whose name is drawn.
Any other ideas to reach the required total welcomed!!
I'll give you a call later today to discuss...
