Aug 24-Sept 24: Kickstarter Campaign to Fund the Sonnet Event
Follow the link above and pledge support to our fundraising campaign. If we reach our goal of $1000, then the money comes to us. If we receive less than $1000 in pledges, then no money is donated. Kickstarter is an “All or Nothing” deal, so we need donations to reach our goal by Sept 24! If you pledge money and the goal is reached, there are rewards for our donors! You can get tickets to our Sonnet event in October, bumper stickers, magnets, personalized Shakespearean insults, participate in a video speech, dedicate a sonnet, get VIP seating, or even be a Celebrity at our sonnet event and present a sonnet for the audience.
