It's finally time that Julie Anne Turner made her debut EP "Please Don't Love Me". She has the songs, she has the talent, and now she needs your support!
She has plenty of family, friends, and fans that already DO love her, and her music, so let's work together to help her in fulfilling this dream!! Her birthday is in March and what better way to say Happy Birthday Julie (no need to get her a gift card or candle now!), than getting on board and backing her first EP and getting a cool CD in the mail when it's finished!
Julie has said over and over "maybe later this year, maybe before this, or after that" but simply has not not made that leap of faith to act on it, and seems to think that she might not have enough support to fund her "average talent" as she referred to it. I expect that we are more than capable of proving her wrong. (I do not want to refund your money and have Julie find out that while her talent is abundant, the money was not)
THIS IS A SURPRISE, PLEASE DON'T RUIN IT. Julie currently has no idea that this page exists and that her husband and friends are wanting to surprise her with this as a special gift.
Our deadline is Feb 16, That is when Julie will be presenting with this page, our master plan to carry out her desire to have a physical representation of what she loves to do, and the outpouring of love and support from all of you who wish to experience this with her.
On Feb. 16, Julie will have a few weeks to edit this page and do the very same thing we are doing now, spreading the word and asking for support. On Saturday, all the information will be passed over and she can begin her own journey of reaching some of her friends that either hadn't given yet or didn't get the memo as we had no way of contacting them and maintaining our secret. (so much harder and nerve-racking than it sounds)
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Look at the different support options and decide how you can best support Julie in getting to the goal we set of $5000. When you are done, take the link, and turn around and send it (much like it was sent to you) to your other friends that know Julie, and even those that don't. (good music is good music folks!) Our hope is that if everyone will pass it on, it will get to the people it needs to get to. We will take your money, but would prefer that you play an active role in sharing this and following the journey with us and then with Julie after Feb 16th. You can post it on FB, but if you aren't savy enough to know how to set the custom security settings to hide the post and the activity from Julie, then maybe you should stick to FB Messages and emails. Just be sure to inform everyone it is in fact a SECRET, and we would like to keep it that way as long as possible!
Once you pick a support level, Paypal will ask for your information and the money will securely leave your account, show up on the support page, and go into an account Julie can access once she knows it exists in her name to start the process.
How did you come up with the goal of $5,000? What happens if we don't make it? Where is my money going?
Our goal is $5,000. After doing some research, looking up the costs of studios, mixing and mastering, production and distribution, and talking to other artists who made a similar EP, we came to a consensus of what it would cost to cover the costs of a basic EP to a high quality EP. It's a fluid number as there are corners that can be cut, choices that can be made, and options that greatly determine what product you get and at what cost. This is not an "all or nothing" site where if the goal isn't reached, Julie gets $0. So we are asking for $5,000, and will see what we can get Julie started with. I'm no Julie, so getting people behind ME is much more of a challange than behind HER! But we will get her a head start and a convincing reason why now may be a good time to start.
Like I said before, your money is guaranteed. If the outpour of love from Julie's friends is no love at all:I will refund everyone their money and pay the small service charge the site collects from those who did donate. If we get money whether $2000 or $6000:will just determine how much work Julie has to do to get to a number she's comfortable with and how many decisions she gets to make and if she can create a finished product or a work in progress. So you will either see all your money returned in full or you will receive to the best of our ability:that which was promised.
So I hope you will join us in praying over this campaign and consider supporting Julie in taking the next step.
