I’m beginning to think I made a bad decision with the fixed funding Indiegogo campaign that passed its deadline on the 11th. All pledges were refunded, and I’ve asked that those people re-donate to the current campaign, which has no deadline and use flexible funding…I retain all donations even if the goal isn’t met.
My error was in thinking that the deadline would result in either of two extremes: the goal being met in a few days, or that little would be donated. As it turned out, over $4600 was pledged…all of which has now been returned to the donors.
The deadline’s purpose was to stress the time limit if I were to make it to Tampa to participate in the events surrounding the RNC independently, pure and simple. If I can’t do it under my own power I’m open to alternative means, but I am in no way abandoning this project!
That’s why I stayed up that night to get the new flexible funding campaign set up, launching it shortly after the deadline for the first one passed.
I realize it’s an annoyance asking the original donors to re-donate. Rest assured, there will be no further deadlines, I’ll be retaining all funds, and the donors’ perks can be awarded, whereas with the first they aren’t awarded when no one’s actually donated since their funds were returned.
Live and learn. My apologies for any confusion, but Get Glenn Mobile! is alive and well, and this Indiegogo campaignwill simply run until the goal’s met, allowing me to modify my Honda Element for wheelchair access to release me from the three years’ housebound confinement I’ve been under. I tried to get reminder/thank you messages to some of the original donors, but Indiegogo isn’t letting me.
I thank all who’ve gotten involved, but now we need to get back up to speed; had I retained that $4600 plus, I’d now be halfway home!
Those dratted unforeseen consequences will bite you whenever they get a chance!
