One-Percenters on Kickstarter

As my Kickstarter project passes the halfway point, I’ve been thinking more about my request for funding from friends, family, and even strangers. Let’s face it, I’m a one-percenter – which is part of what I think makes this project interesting (and fun for me). But it also raises the question – why do you need money? For me, it’s about validation of the concept, and something concrete I can show to the publishing world.

Here’s another perspective. I was surfing through some other Kickstarter projects, and came across a project launched by Spike Lee. Last August, he raised over  $1.4 million for his latest movie project. In his video and in the description of the project, he discusses the question – why should people give money to a wealthy, successful filmmaker?

If nothing else, that guy’s got some crazy cool stuff to give away for his rewards…

OK, enough. Back to Rudy and his most recent crises. But please keep sharing this project with your friends!
