Has the term “crowdfunding” made its way into your on-line or off-line life yet? Crowdfunding is going to make Rising Star possible because of everyone you know and everyone we know. And, everyone we don’t know.

Crowdfunding describes the collective cooperation, attention and trust by people who network and pool their money together, usually via the Internet, in order to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. – Wikipedia

Think of it as an on-line stone soup. But, instead of ingredients the contributions are financial, word of mouth, or digital sharing.

Rising Star is now fund raising, crowdfunding style, through Our goal is to raise $15,000 by giving back. For example, by contributing $28.00 now you will receive a copy of the movie when it is complete! With each level of contribution the production team brainstormed a variety of fun and interactive give backs for you.

The catch to Kickstarter is that we have to raise 100% of the funds or we get nothing. That’s zero, zilch, nada. Or in dollars… $0.00. It’s exciting and incredibly scary.

We need your help. Of course a contribution to the campaign would be wonderful but sharing the campaign with your friends and family is just as amazing. Our paths may have crossed but we haven’t met all of your friends or family or their friends or family. So, take part by sharing this page or anything Rising Star related.

We have until September 15 to raise $15,000 or we get nothing (aka $0.00).
