Send Paul's show to Edinburgh!

Hey there. I'm Paul. I'm a comedian. And I need your support to do something amazing. 
 Over the past two years, I’ve written, workshopped, and honed a comedy show with the dream of performing it at the biggest arts festival in the world: Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

 Why Fringe? Because performing my work at this festival would not only give me an opportunity to reach a large audience but to also connect with producers who can help me take the show to the next level. 

 I’ve been booked! Whaaaaaa?

 Now, I need your help to fund the performances.

 ‘The Long Miserable Journey to Happiness’ is an interactive one-man show about a clown who perseveres through mishaps and hardships on his quest to spread happiness. It’s the best work I’ve ever created and I can’t wait to share it at the festival with your help.

 By backing this project, you will pay for necessities like travel, lodging, festival fees, props, food, and promotional materials for a month of performing and promoting over 25 performances. 

 And the festival is coming up fast.

 That’s why I’m reaching out for your help to raise $6250 before I leave on July 30th.

 This is a dream coming true for me and I can’t thank you enough for your amazing support!

 Now for the perks!

 Anyone who donates $10 will receive a show sticker and send you a thank you selfie.

Anyone who donates $20 or more will be sent a behind the scene vlog of the days activity getting ready for the show.

 Anyone who donates $35 or more will get a personal video of a subject that makes you happy.

 Anyone who donates $50 or more will get a photo of me eating your favorite meal with you.

 Anyone who donates $100 or more I will make you dinner.
