LETTER FROM DETROIT
Dear supporters and friends,
This update from Kennedy Prints is long overdue. The move was a little hard on our hero, but Detroit has been very kind to him, and things are sorting themselves out. We are about two months behind schedule on production and distribution of the perks from the Indiegogo campaign, but rest assured – the results will be worth the wait.
Amos and three truckloads of treasure du junque landed in the Big D in early January — albeit a little bit roughly. Several presses were damaged in transit, along with some furniture, as well as Amos’s favorite pair of scissors. Slowly, though, he has sorted and shuffled, travelled a bit, scouted out property, learned to ice skate, and things are coming together.
It seems that Amos escaped Alabama just in the nick of time. Suddenly, various Alabama media outlets began covering his work, and his former residence is about to be transformed into Gordo’s very finest letterpress museum.
Luckily, Detroit offers nearly 140 square miles of obscurity for our hero to fade into. Paczki Day in Poletown* may have proven itself portentous this year, as Amos has purportedly found a permanent place for his Printing Plant. We hope to offer another update very soon, announcing good news.
Thank you for your continued concern and support. We look forward to flooding your mailboxes in the very near future.
Amos in Detroit
WE HAVE SO MUCH GREAT NEWS :: WE ARE JUST BURSTING WITH IT!!
First & foremost ~ Indiegogo has extended our campaign by a day! And moreover, they’ve lowered our goal to the o-so-reachable $30K. If we make it, there’s a bonus!!
So, kind supporters, please continue to share share SHARE the news — one more day! We can do this — and we WILL.
Next — the $2500 match was made! Our mystery donor has doubled every donation made between 6am Saturday and 6pm today :: $2510 :: which puts us within $2125 of the $30K goal. THANK YOU ALL!
And finally, we are thrilled to report that ANOTHER donor has pledged a MATCH! If we can move fifty of the $10 KP! MYSTERY PERKS, this donor will put in another $500.
Every little thing is gonna be all right ~ and every little bit counts for a whole lot.
The Detroit Printing Plant is incredibly grateful.
WE’RE NEARING THE GOAL ON THE MATCH!!
Also, because of technical difficulties in letting y’all KNOW about the match, our funder has extended the period until 6pm CST. This means — you still have time to change your $5 into $10, because all donations up until 6pm will be matched (up to $2500 total).
Current subtotal as of 1 pm :: $2025. Our donor says: Come on, folks, get that last $475.
(We love our donor). AND YOU TOO!
Thank you for supporting, sharing, tweeting, yelling, living, loving, etc
p.s. One last thing: some kind of glitch is causing our time countdown to read “13 hours ago,” as if the campaign ended last night. It’s not over yet! It should say 13 HOURS TO GO! and that takes us to about 2am CST. But don’t delay!
WE HAVE A “MATCHING GRANT”!!! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD & HELP US MAKE IT!
A wonderful anonymous donor has issued a challenge:
They will MATCH ALL FUNDS contributed to the Detroit Printing Plant BY NOON TOMORROW! UP TO $2500!*
~ This can be “the perfect match” for the DPP ~
We know many of you have already contributed — THANK YOU!
You can help us make the match just by SHARING this message.
*All contributions made between 6am (CST) on 12/15/12 and 12NOON (CST) on 12/16/12 will be matched (up to $2500 total).
