When we launched the MST3K & MIGIZI fundraiser back in July, we set a goal of $20,000, adding the carrot of two! brand-new! shorts! to be riffed by MST3K alumni Joel Hodgson, J. Elvis Weinstein, and Bill Corbett.(!!!) You, in your endless generosity, and also your ravenous hunger for MORE RIFFS, met that number almost immediately, so we extended our goal to $40,000.
Last night you powered through that goal too. And with a week still left on the fundraising clock!
Hello again, team! Lesley here with another fundraiser update. We are ten days out from the end of the MST3K & MIGIZI fundraiser and we are SO CLOSE to DOUBLING our original goal of $20,000! Over 1,100 of you have donated so far and we appreciate every single one of you.
Joel will be reaching out to those of you who have contributed with a personal note of thanks in the coming days, so look forward to that!
Also, there have been some questions about folks who donated anonymously, and how they will gain access to the two new shorts to be riffed by Joel, Josh, and Bill and… we’re figuring that out and will have an answer for you soon.
I’ll also remind y’all that these newly to-be-riffed shorts — “A Busy Day at the County Fair” and “Behind the Scenes at the Supermarket” — do not exist yet! We have to make them! But we expect them to be ready for you in the fall and we will keep you updated here every step of the way.
Anyway, thanks again to everyone who has contributed and also shared the MST3K & MIGIZI fundraiser! With your help we will crush our $40,000 goal for sure, and help a fantastic organization to rebuild.
