Lana Z. Updates Us on Her Kickstarter Campaign!
As of now (Tuesday morning), I’m pretty far away from my goal still — we still have about $2500 to raise by Friday, which is a little nuts, but is totally possible. Sadly, if I don’t reach the goal by Friday, I will have done hundreds of burpees for nothing other than these amazing new shoulder muscles — which isn’t too terrible really 😉
Since the last blog post about the project, I added new corporate sponsorship rewards for the project. Mostly I’ve been doing this door to door sales-woman style, but, they are also available as rewards on our Kickstarter page. If anyone at CrossFit is looking to promote their personal business, this might be a great way to get your name out to the local Brooklyn community as well as the larger design/NYC scene. I have already received a lot of press based around the project and have done lots of interviews for great blogs and magazines, I expect this to continue and grow. Feel free to contact me if you have questions: Lana@groundupdesigners.com
On a personal level, this will be my first built architectural work, which makes the project extra important to me. As an architect, it’s really hard to see your vision come to life, it requires a lot of community support and a lot of money… that’s why I’m here on begging for donations from friends. So yeah, if anyone within the CrossFit community is able to make a donation and get me a little closer to my goal, it would just make my life. Thanks so so so much for all your help so far, you guys have already blown my mind with your support and I really truly appreciate it. Of corse, the ‘1 burpee per $1’ reward is still an option for you guys, but please be patient as it may take me a day or two to recover between sets — I’ve received warnings from multiple coaches about this, so maybe I should listen 😉
For fun: Here are the videos I made of myself doing burpees for all the awesome folks who already donated!
35 Burpees for Dan H (to be completed at the box with Dan at my side, because he is extra nice and offered to do them with me)20 Burpees for WODstack (yeah, I don’t know how I got that to happen)20 Burpees for Coach Margie (My dog does a Burpee in this video, YESSS!)(If I missed you in the list of backers, please let me know… some people might have slipped by my attention)THANKS SO SO MUCH!!<3Lana
