Down to the Wire for Sheila Wyne’s Spore Adventure

This Note From Artist Sheila:

Hey All,

As you know I am down here imbibing the Art Prize event in Grand Rapids Michigan.
It has been an amazing experience so far. I will continue to keep you updated on
happenings here on the ground during the final week of the event. Bruce Farnsworth is managing my Kickstarter fundraising campaign and here is his latest update:

Thanks for your help and patience.

Sheila

Bruce’s Update:
The Kickstarter fundraising campaign is on the home stretch. As of today 126 of you have become
backers of the Kickstarter campaign. That is absolutely amazing and a tribute to the arts community
in Alaska and the wider world. Sheila needs to go over the goal by $1,700. in order to recoup the 10%
fee charged by Kickstarter and Amazon so don’t stop now!
Thank you so much for your pledges and good wishes.
Those of you who have yet to become backers, now is the time. We are down to the proverbial wire. Please do the following:

Go to Sheila’s kickstarter Project Site:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/669854463/spore
Watch the video (it’s short and interesting/entertaining)
Become a “Backer” (it’s a simple and secure process)
Follow her updates as she posts them (approximately) daily

Thank you one and all.
