I have probably invited, cajoled and even begged you to come to an event I was involved with just with the hope of having a good crowd and a great night (and maybe at least break even at the door), but in this missive I’m going to ask something of you I have never asked for before. Something so outrageous, so ostentatious, so out of character I am tremble and shake as I type this. We will get to the ask in a bit, first I want to talk about where this ask is coming from

The first 3 days are the most critical time for visibility and by just contributing $1 dollar this very minute you can help get this fundraiser to the front page where more people learn about this amazing art project and join the fray. We have some amazing rewards contributed by myself, other trucks and supporters from around the country, so if you want to pledge more please do so. I won’t be mad if you give more than $1, I promise. Scout’s honor. Pinky swear. And we are a non-profit for all donations are tax-deductible.

Sure, it’s less than I ask for theDancehall of Beautiful Radiant Things (http://www.dancehallofbeautifulradiantthings.com/) , it’s less than Urban Golf, Urban Iditarod (http://laughingsquid.com/?s=urban+iditarod) and the 9.8th Fighting Kite Brigade (http://laughingsquid.com/98th-fighting-kite-brigade/) . Way less than the door for Buzzed Bee (http://laughingsquid.com/?s=buzzed+bee) , Match Game and What’s Your Answer (http://laughingsquid.com/?s=what%27s+your+answer) . But in truth, it’s the ha

Here I’m asking you for a dollar for an art experience you may never get to enjoy,to enable Everywhere Logistics to meet its enormous fundraising goal and connect with other artists and audiences across our great land.
