Help The Men Dilemmas Web Series Become Reality! #Kickstarter

Men Dilemmas: Custard Sisters Production

by Alicia Custard

A Web Series on how men cope with life experiences. See how men handle issues ranging from relationships to finance.

What is Men Dilemmas?

Genre: Action/Comedy

Men Dilemmas is web series that explores the experiences of various men and their unique stories.

As a writer with a large network of friends and colleagues, Lauren Renee decides to launch a successful magazine with her best friend, Tony Banks. As an Attorney, Tony has quite the exciting social life. They decide to create a magazine called “Men Dilemmas” to reveal the true intricacies of men. Each magazine feature story comes to life through our web series, where viewers can enjoy an entertaining collection of stories, humorous encounters and lots of action. These episodes explore everything from dating, workplace challenges, competitiveness among men and other topics.

Why Men Dilemmas was created?

We’re creating Men Dilemmas in response to the question: “Why do women tend to live longer than men?” We answer that query with a combination of humor, action packed drama, insight and conversation.

The concept for the series has its roots in an event involving Alicia Custard, the co-producer of Men Dilemmas, and her infant nephew: she pampers the boy, admiring his cute and beautiful face, while some stranger suddenly yells, “Stop babying him! He will be a man one day!” The comment stuns Alicia, making her think about the differences between men and women.

The hyper competitive nature of men – a world filled with machismo, stress, fear and anxiety – can be extremely unhealthy. Alicia and her sister Vicki, who is also a co-producer of the series, know that men should have an outlet for their emotions — a chance to share their stories, express their feelings and give viewers a snapshot of daily life.


Why are the funds needed?

The funds are needed to cover the cost of production and post-production of the web series.

The Dollar Wallet Kickstarter

The Dollar Wallet – Made in the U.S.A.

by Kyle J. Britt

The Dollar Wallet is a simple, functional, well-designed wallet that is made in the U.S.A. And it starts at just $1.

Now including international shipping options and new rewards!


Hi, my name’s Kyle and I wanted to make a wallet that is simple, functional, affordable, well-designed, and made in the U.S.A.

The Dollar Wallet is the answer to the desire for a thin-profile, minimalistic wallet that doesn’t charge a premium for simplicity.

The Dollar Wallet costs $1. It is made from high-quality, American-made fiber board and non-roll elastic. It’s a smidgeon bigger than a credit card. It’s durable, reliable, and fits up to 8-10 credit cards and some cash. Yep, still just a buck.

The Dollar Wallet Plus is like its older cousin. It’s a little more mature, more refined. The Dollar Wallet Plus can be upgraded and customized to your heart’s content. It starts at two dollars and is made of high-quality American-sourced plywood and the same non-roll elastic available to upgrade with multiple colors and patterns.

We’ve made our way through about a half a dozen prototypes to the version you see today. It started as a sketch in my notebook at work, first laid out horizontally, then as I shared the idea with a few friends, shifted to vertical.

The sketches that started it all.The sketches that started it all.

Then I made a cardboard sample which lasted all of one morning before I got excited, drove to A.C. Moore, bought some craft plywood and carved a new sample in the workshop at work on my lunch hour. I carried that prototype for a week as I researched options for final materials. I settled on 3/32″ Taskboard for the Dollar Wallet and 1/16″ Aircraft craft plywood for the Dollar Wallet Plus. Both offer rigidity and durability from a high-quality material that will thrive in your pocket all day and a high value to cost ratio to keep production costs low enough to make the Dollar Wallet affordable for everyone. I rented time on a local laser cutter to make production prototypes of both materials, stained them, and began testing in my pocket and with friends.

A few of the steps along the wayA few of the steps along the way

The production prototypes you see are laser cut, as the final version will be. The only minor modifications remaining to be made before production are tightening up the notches for the elastic on the sides to fit the band more snugly, and using better stitching to secure the elastic.


Production prototypes are expensive. In order to make this product a reality we need to use the funds from this Kickstarter to purchase our supplies in bulk and purchase a laser cutter to install in our garage studio allow us to make the wallets as efficiently as possible.

Production of the Dollar Wallet starts with the raw boards, which get laser cut into the Dollar Wallet shape. Meanwhile, the elastic bands are cut and sewn into a loop. Then the Dollar Wallets are stained, and if they will be laser etched, put back into the laser cutter to be etched, then clear coated to protect the exposed etching. Then the elastic is placed in the notches and the Dollar Wallet is complete.

After the success of our kickstarter will will immediately order the supplies and laser cutter, with an anticipated delivery date of mid-October for our Early Bird backers and mid-November for most backers. The clear intention of timeline is to make the Dollar Wallet available in time for Christmas so that those of you who are inclined can give the Dollar Wallet as a gift to the minimalist-loving friend or family member of yours!

The Prolight Board Indiegogo


Prolight Boards saving lives by making riders more visible at night

Manufacturing LED Lit Professional Skateboards for visibility at dusk and night.



Hi, I’m Abraham Carattini, founder, inventor, visionary, patent holder, athelete and member of consortium comprised of inventors, NASA aerospace engineers, contract and patent attorneys, concept marketers and product development teams. Partnered with an engineering specialist and owner of LED lighting company.


Prolight Boards

In September 2008, Abraham Carattini, founder of PROLIGHT BOARDS, INC., was returning home late one night. While only a few blocks from his home, which is near a skating park, he pulled up to a red light to make a right turn. Thinking all was clear, he began the turn and almost hit a skater who seemed to appear out of nowhere. Abraham was shaken by the thought that the skater could have been seriously injured. He wondered how many other skaters had not been quite as fortunate. From this experience he came up with the idea of an LED lighted skateboard. Immediately, he began working on a prototype that would provide this safety feature without compromising the integrity of the board. After research revealed the breadth and scope of the skateboarding industry, Abraham realized that he had a solid, if not revolutionary, idea.

PROLIGHT BOARDS, INC. is an innovative sport-board lighting company that holds patented LED lighting technology for skateboards.


What We Need & What You Get


These are the various phases we’re looking to provide 100,000+ funding towards…


Phase 4 (Need Funding)


Inventory of a full line of skate boards; seven different design shapes of the push button and remote control modes.

Phase 5 (Need Funding)


Ongoing development, production and packaging of software, product line, safety gear and a “safety oriented” clothing line. Solidify relationships with our sales channels and accounts.

Phase 6 (Need Funding)


Expansion in manufacturing for wood boards, PLB brand trucks, and PLB brand wheels.

Our Perks like most surround our product. We offer the supporters to be the first to rock a cool personal logo T-Shirt of the pattoned Blue Angler Fish, really cool Personalized Prolight Board Plague with engraved gifter’s name or Our very own Signature Long Boards which can been seen on our website

If we fail to reach our goal, we’ll use the funding to help market the product and manufacture some boards that could drawl heavy interest of investors and venture capitalist backing on continuance of covering the 3 Phases to bring this dream to a reality.




The Impact

LED lighting and board design not only allows a skater distinctive individualization and self-expression, but introduces innovative concepts and new trends for a growing market. The technology also makes skaters more visible at night which decreases the likelihood of being hit by vehicles.

Once launched in the United States, ProLight plans to expand internationally, initially targeting Australia where night skateboarding has been banned due to accidents and injuries resulting from skaters not being visible at night. The law provides the perfect opportunity to highlight ProLight’s unique attributes that blend safety and creative inspiration to revolutionize the skateboarding industry.

Other Ways You Can Help

A lot of lives have been lost surrounding drivers and skateboarder related accidents at night. You, yourself might know someone who has been gravely injured or lost they’re life because a similar accident.

In 2011, there were 42 reported cases of skateboarders killed in California, Texas, and Virginia. The numbers continue to grow in 2012, and 2013 due to poor visibility. City ordinances are being placed, to prohibit skateboarders from riding after sunset. On April 15, 2013 a 12 year-old-girl was killed in Florida crossing a road at night and May 4, 2013 An 8-year-old Jefferson Hills boy died after being hit by a car Friday night. These numbers continue to soar. So if u can’t help monetary, please get the word out via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and of coarse the old fashion way “Word of Mouth” about this campaign because this won’t just help us, it may help one of your love ones one day. Don’t forget, there’s Indiegogo share tools to help make things easier in your quest to make Prolight Boards a reality.

Crystal Guard Zero! Ahhhh! INDIEGOGO! GO NOW!


Crystal Guard Zero – Chemical that cleans & turns surfaces into crystal glass

Crystal Guard Zero is a revolutionary chemical invented in Japan that cleans and turns any surfaces into crystal glass. Ideal for cars, bikes, gadgets, and etc.

Crystal Guard -It's Real Liquid Crystal Glass

Our new product “Crystal Guard Zero” is a very unique chemical that cleans & turns any surfaces into real crystal glass.

Before we go into the details of our new chemical, I would like you to know about its base ingredient “Crystal Guard”. Its performance is amazing:

1. Cleanability - Water sheeting effect 2. Glossiness - Gloss retention 100% 3. Durability - Mohs hardness scale 6

Crystal Guard is primarily formulated for automobiles but its use can be extended for motorcycles, bikes, boats, air planes, sinks, furniture, luggages, smart phones, gadgets, watches, cameras and all your accessories.

You don’t need to worry about errors or smudges, anyone can use with confidence and ease.

You car will look like this. Or even your smart phone will look like this.

That was our original Crystal Guard and we had to transcend our own limit. After experimenting and refining Crystal Guard for 10 years, we came up with a new formula that merges the sealant and cleaning ingredients into one powerful and harm free chemical.

We now need your support to launch this revolutionary product “Crystal Guard Zero” into the global market and to realize the ultimate dream of the late inventor.

Wether you have a car or not, we believe you’ll love it.

What is Crystal Guard?

Our original Crystal Guard is a revolutionary chemical product that was invented by a Japanese chemist. The power of Crystal Guard lies in its ability to create a micro-thin crystal glass layer bonded on any non-absorbent surfaces in normal temperature.

20-30% more gloss and 800% more durability

Crystal Guard doesn’t oxidize or deteriorate unlike wax, oil or, silicon-based products. It adds 20 – 30% more gloss to clear coated auto bodies. Besides that, it enhances surface durability by800% (more than all teflon-based polymer sealants) and makes the surfaces resistant to acide and heat (up to 1,500F).

That’s not all. Crystal Guard also fills micro disperities and reduces friction making your surface as smooth as this:

Crystal glass makes any surfaces this smooth

To understand Crystal Guard, let’s delve into more details.

3 Big Advantages of Crystal Guard

Let’s look at the 3 major and proven advantages of Crystal Guard.

1. High Cleanability – Water sheeting effect

Crystal Guard is not “repellent”; it is “hydrophobic” in nature like crystal glass.

Crystal Guard is Hydrophobic instead of repellent.

Here’s the difference between Crystal Guard and other normal sealants.

A repellent sealant or wax beads the water, which means it keeps water on the surface and attracts more dust & dirt. It causes stains on the paint and possibly accelerates oxidation in the worst scenario.

On the other hand, Crystal Guard creates a hydrophobic layer that sheets water off your car surface. It makes it super easy to clean your car with tap water only. Plus, Crystal Guard reduces static charges on surfaces, thus, making them attract less dirt.

To demonstrate the cleanability of Crystal Guard, we simulated dirt deposits with a white board marker on a test plate. Repellent sealant and wax applied on the left side and Crystal Guard applied on the right side. We only soaked and shook the plate several times in water. Watch this:

Repellent sealant and wax on the left, and hydrophobic Crystal Guard on the right.

I think you already know that glass cups are easier to clean compared to ceramic cups. If you want to see that in action, watch video on the top.

2. Glossiness –100% Gloss retention

Crystal Guard adds and prolongs the gloss on the bodies of old and brand new cars alike.

Crystal Guard has gloss retention 100%

Crystal Guard contains NO oil or wax based ingredients. The Japanese National Standard anti-weathering test (JIS K 2396) has proven that Crystal Guard layers don’t deteriorate and as matter of fact, they retain 100% gloss unless physically damaged.

Every subsequent application leaves you with super clear mirror-like reflection like the one below:

mirror-looking reflection of Crystal Guard

3. Durability – Mohs hardness scale 6

The Japanese national standard anti-weathering test (JIS K 2396) further proved that the surface of Crystal Guard layer has a hardness of 6 in the Mohs scale. This is equivalent to the hardness of a 9H pencil in the Japanese standard or the hardness of 11H in the USA. When you seal your paint with Crystal Guard, you will effectually protect the surfaces from swirls in the future.

Crystal Guard's hardness is 6 in Mohs scale.

The Crystal Guard layer is also acid resistant and heat registant up to 1,500 F. No stain is left even after bird droppings.

Evolving to much better chemical

We are not entirely new in the automotive chemical industry. Over the last 10 years, our products have relieved hundreds of thousands of Japanese citizens from the tiresome process of wax-on & wax-off karate-kid duties.

To deliver greater value to our customers, we continually improve the performance of our Crystal Guard line of products. Our products keep evolving and we now want to usher a new revolutionary chemical into the global market.

Let me introduce our new product, Crystal Guard Zero.

Crystal Guard Zero - Compatible solution between cleansing and durability capabilities

Crystal Guard Zero

We have optimized the new Crystal Guard Zero by combining two powerful yet contradictory properties “durability” and “detergency”.

Every time you buy some “wax & shampoo” products, you have to trade-off either of the two properties to avoid a conflict. Do you know why? The reason is simple; a detergent’s work is to remove wax and dirt deposits.

Though Crystal Guard contains no wax or oil, it has the ability of removing dirt or oil off surfaces and creating a crystal glass layer on any surface.

We have tested over 1,000 patterns of Crystal Guard Zero prototype for the last 10 years and we want to assure that there was no compromise in safety and performance at all.

1,000 experiments for Crystal Guard Zero

After a decade of reseach and experimentation, we completed the new formula.

Clean, Shine, and Protect in One Step!

The new Crystal Guard Zero is easy to use. You only need to spray and wipe it like any window or bathroom cleaneing agent in your home. That is all.

Crystal Guard Zero is easy. Just spray and wipe.

You don’t need to apply any pressure when wiping a surface. The chemical creates a crystal layer bonded on paint once it touches the surface.

This new product will relieve you off regular headaches and the burden of washing your car. The beauty of it all is that it cleans, polishes, and protects your car without the need of water, even in the middle of desert.

That’s not all.

Crystal Guard Zero will save you hundreds of dollars that you would have otherwise spent in detailing and waxing your car week-in and week-out. Just grab s bottle of Crystal Guard Zero and spray & wipe with ease.

Crystal Guard is a multi-purpose product that has been optimized for automobiles, motorcycles, glasses, watches, sinks, luggages, counters, and several other accessories.

Saves your energy and time while you enjoy polishing your gadgets with it 🙂

10 Detailed advantages of Crystal Guard

1. Cleanability – Water sheeting effect
2. Glossiness – Gloss retention 100%
3. Durability – Mohs hardness scale 6

We have already mentioned the 3 major benefits in fair details above. Now, let’s look at 7 more that you need to know.

4. ZERO minute for application

“Zero” is for “zero minute for application.” The best thing about Crystal Guard Zero is that you do not even need to worry about the sealant application process. All you have to do is to spray & wipe. That’s all.

car wax versus Crystal Guard Zero

If you apply it to your car severally, it will create a crystal layer equivalent to our primary product Crystal Guard One, which is the base ingredient of Zero.

(One and Pro also need only 5 minutes for each application.)

5. Expert results and affordable price

Crystal Guard Zero is a cost-effective cleaning product. Each 270ml (9.13oz.) bottle will retail for $27.95 which is more than enough to cater for multiple cleaning and polishing needs. Multiple applications guarantee professional results and a durable crystal glass layer which would cost you over $100 or more at car detailers.

When it comes to performance, there is no alternative or replica of Crystal Guard. All other products sold at major retail stores like Amazon for $15 to $60 are based on wax or silicone. Unlike Crystal Guard, their gloss retention and cleanability are not proven which means they oxidize upon application.

6. Real crystal glass

As we have mentioned, Crystal Guard turns into a smooth and genuine micro thin crystal glass layer just like your watch. Once you apply it, the chemical will remove micro disparities on your surface leaving it smooth and flat.

Do you want a genuine proof of crystal glass? Just burn the chemical at a temperature of 5,500F (3,000C) as shown below, and it will turn into real crystal glass.

7. Build up your crystal glass layer yourself

All wax or sealant starts oxidizing and deteriorating right from the first application. Worse still, wax needs to be removed before a subsequent application and this increases the possibility of damages surfaces.

On the other hand, application of fixative sealant creates stacked-up smudgy layers which cause garish reflection on any surface. The situation doesn’t improve when you hire detailer because they won’t let you maintain the automobile surface yourself.

Unlike wax or sealant, Crystal Guard never oxidizes or deteriorates with time. In fact, the more you apply the thicker the crystal glass layer you’ll get. Every layers bonds with preceding layer create super clear reflections on your surfaces.

Crystal Guard layer build up as 1 layer.

You can now see why Crystal Guard is the only one product that gets better with multiple applications.

Unlike wax, multiple applications of Crystal Guard will fill swirls creating smooth and durable surfaces. In fact, it keeps filling swirls unless you physically rub or damage the surfaces.

Crystal Guard fills swirls

8. Greater versatility

Crystal Guard can create a crystal glass layer on any surfaces so long as it’s not absorbent. You can apply it on plastics, carbon fiber, chrome plates, or wood panels. Interestingly, some people apply crystal Guard on gadgets such as smartphones.

I got inspired to apply it on my Galaxy Note II a couple of time and it’s now super slippery to carry without a cover.

Crystal Guard reflection on smart phone.

9. Environmentally safe and ecological

Crystal Guard contains no compounds or solvents. It’s a biodegradable chemical whose ecological safety has been tested & proven already in the USA at Bureau Veritas (ex. MTL-ACTS). Crystal Guard has no known harm at all and thus, it’s EPA & TSCA compliant.

10. No need for car wax anymore

You wanna be a life-time Karate Kid?

If you have been struggling with car wax then you will be glad to know that Crystal Guard eliminates the need for car wax, once and for all. You don’t have to struggle wax-on and wax-off your car week in week out or worry about smudges in your surfaces. The improved Crystal Guard is easy to apply and wipe.

Just say good-bye to car wax today. Spray & wipe Crystal Guard Zero while humming your favorite song.

By the way, this is not our 1st. challenge

I know you are wondering what Crystal Guard is and how it came into being. Well, the idea of Crystal Guard was conceived and implemented in Japan almost a decade ago. Soon after, it was introduced in California in the year 2002.

Crystal Guard in 2002

The original Crystal Guard was a bit expensive for most consumers, and to be honest it was not successful. We agonized over the decision to scale down operations and move our core business operation back to Japan in 2003.

Fortunately, Crystal Guard was well accepted by Japanese consumers. Crystal Guard One & Pro are well known in the Japanese automotive market and are currently available at nation-wide retail stores.

Our 2nd. challenge to the world

We’ve never given up on our desire for global distribution. After 10 years of experimentation, we successfully invented a new formula for our first global product.

Unfortunately, the original inventor/chemist passed on after we moved our operations to Japan. This was a difficult time because were struggling to satisfy the needs of our overseas customers overseas. Though we regret the decade long withdrawal of our products, we are excited to re-launch the next generation Crystal Guard products in the United States and launch it in the global market.

Crystal Guard Now in 2013

Crystal Guard has now evolved. We have been working with the inventor’s son to re-launch it again with much more powerful chemical. That’s why we need YOU TODAY!

Why do we need you?

We need your earnest support so that we can launch Crystal Guard in the global market. If we can do this, then we will make the dream of our dear departed inventor come true at last.

Our goal covers a minimum initial cost to produce and launch Crystal Guard Zero.

To keep the retail price under $30, we need to produce at least 2 barrels for EACH primary ingredient at the factory. The total cost will exceed tens of thousand dollars.

We’ve already completed label design and the only thing that remains is to get a minimum order of 10,000 bottles and 50,000 film labels.

Label design is completed already, but we also need to order a minimum lot of 10,000 bottles and 50,000 film labels.

$25,000 covers:

  • Meeting initial cost of chemical production
  • Printing labels
  • Securing bottles
  • US fulfillment capabilities
  • US UPC code registration at GS1 for barcodes
  • Support our unpaid maid girl, Chris Talguard

We work with a special and iconic maid girl, Chris Talguard, who voluntarily posed for the introduction video that you have seen. Unfortunately, we have not been able to reward her for her adorable performance because we operate on an extremely limited budget. It’s our earnest desire to reward her with a portion of the pledges that we receive as a token of appreciation for her outstanding performance.

By the way, without her help, our other maid would have looked like this in the cover!

The Squatch Watchers Kickstarter

Squatch Watchers

by Jason Inman

What is Squatch Watchers?

Squatch Watchers is a web series about a team of Bigfoot believers that are searching for the mysterious and elusive beast.

So, wait? Is this fictional?

No! The Squatch Watchers are comprised of real people and the series will document our search for Bigfoot. The first season will comprise of five episodes with a running time of around ten minutes each. Each episode begins with the team arriving in a new area of California and extensively searching it for any sign of Sasquatch. Local residents will be interviewed; scientists will be consulted to ensure the validity of this search. No rock will be left undisturbed until we declare an area is free of any Bigfoot.

Why are you looking for Bigfoot? Aren’t there TV Shows that do that?

We’re all big believers in Bigfoot. Sadly, television is doing a poor job of actually performing a real search. Most “monster” shows will show up in an area, and then leave that area without finding anything or even making any determination at all! WE WILL NEVER DO THAT.

We’re not a television show that wants to keep the mystery going. We want to solve it. Now, this doesn’t mean that the show will be boring. No sir! We are internet comedians after all. Each episode will be the perfect 50/50 mixture of comedy and actual Bigfoot hunting.

Who the heck are you guys?

We already told you. We’re the Squatch Watchers!

Be more specific!

The Squatch Watchers are made up of Gene Shaw, Jerry Ahern, Jason Inman and Jen Trani.

Jason and Gene will be co-directing the series. Each has years of experience in film, internet and commercial production.

Jason currently produces, shoots and edits for Youtube comedy duo, Rhett & Link. He also creates videos on his own YouTube channel (Jawiin) which has over 2.5 million views collectively.

Gene is no slouch either. He has over a decade of experience in graphic design and illustration. His other credits include several AAA video games, best selling iPhone/iPad and Android apps and feature film editing and visual effects.

Jason and Gene are also no strangers to shooting in the woods. Check out The Walking Dead Christmas Special, a video they co-created that won Best Parody Video at the 2013 Geeky Awards.

The Loki Clan Wolf Indiegogo Press Release

Most Choose the Beach to Say Goodbye to Summer. A Select Few Choose 25 Packs of Wolves in the Deep Woods of New Hampshire.

August 8, 2013 – Conway, NH/Hampton, NH – While many happily choose the soft sand, warm sun, and ocean breezes to spend the last precious weeks of summer, a group of friends dubbed the “Extreme Makeover Team for the Animal World ” say their perfect way to wave goodbye to summer is spending it with 90 wolves in the desolate and deep woods of New Hampshire.

The Project Pawsitive Foundation (, a small, non-profit organization that started renovating animal rescues on the verge of collapse and closure back in 2009, will be building 15 enclosed shelters at the end of the month for the nearly 90 wolves and wolf-hybrid dogs living on the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge ( The refuge is a sanctuary devoted to the protection of wolves and wolf-dogs. Each pack is given an acre of land to run free because these animals are often condemned by law and would otherwise have no home or protection.

The Project Pawsitive team will also be camping right on the refuge surrounded by the animals they are helping. “I can’t say I’m not nervous about being awoken by the howling of wolves feet from my tent,” said Jill Sullivan Grueter, Team Leader and Creator of The Project Pawsitive Foundation. “But, this project is taking us all way out of our comfort zones and that’s when we learn the biggest life lessons.”

The team of close friends is made up of a master carpenter, master electrician, designer, jack of all trades, and project organizer. They have traveled nationally, but mostly perform their renovations for animal rescues in desperate need in New England due to donation struggles. Sullivan Grueter acknowledges tight budgets and low donations keep their work boots sitting idly-by much more than they want. “We could be doing renovations every single day for the rest of our lives and that’s what we want to be doing,” she said. “Maybe we should have bought a Powerball ticket?”

“We raise the money to perform free-of-charge renovations, round up volunteers, and get the job done in a matter of days,” said Sullivan Grueter, who started the organization after the death of her dad and rescue dog. She left her successful business career and never looked back even when not taking a salary for years. “If we can help the lives of animals and people by keeping shelters open and able to adopt – then we’ve made a difference.”

The Loki Clan Refuge project is just one of three rehab projects the team is taking on over the next few months. In September, they are renovating a cat shelter at the Humane Society for Greater Nashua ( to enhance the lives of animals who may spend the rest of their days at the shelter and the Center for Wildlife ( in York, Maine in the fall to add a new roof to a cabin that rehabilitates falcons and rehab a cabin that nurses injured squirrels and hedgehogs back to health before releasing them back to their natural habitats.

The organization is asking for volunteer help and donations for their upcoming projects. To learn more, please visit their website at and click How to Help.

What do a Harley Davidson builder; former English bloke who brews his own beer; ex-military, extreme skier; a designer, and a 3rd degree black belt in karate have in common? They are friends from New Hampshire who give free-of-charge extreme makeovers to animal rescues in need across New England and beyond. They find the money, they find the manpower, and they find the means to do it. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do.

It all started in 2009, when this group came together to renovate a barn in Epping, New Hampshire that saves horses from slaughter, abuse, and neglect. The barn was in rough shape. The roof was leaking and on the verge of collapse, there were no signs of running water or electricity out to the paddocks, the fencing was in shambles, and the volunteers were losing sleep over the amount of work that needed to be done on the facility with dwindling donations due to a down economy.

So, what did Project Pawsitive do? They used their tenured experience in carpentry, construction, electrical work, and project management to gain attention and rope in the help of one of the largest home supply stores in the country along with over 80 local volunteers and they got the job done. The result? Any awesome renovation, restored hope, and renewed faith. All in the matter of a week and to the tune of about $30,000.

Project Pawsitive is a 501c3, non-profit and all donations are tax-deductible. Support the upcoming projects today at and click on How to Help.



Support this Indiegogo and help raise funds to build a community center in Kenya


Kikoko Aid, Inc.

Raising funds to build a community center in Kikoko Village, a poverty stricken village in Kenya.

I am a former Montclair State University student, and current Montclair, New Jersey resident. I visited Kikoko, Kenya in 2009, and after seeing the poor standards of living, I decided to start a charitable organization where, together with the help of global supporters, we would be able to make a difference by eradicating poverty, encouraging education, and building Kikoko’s economy. I am originally from Kikoko village and this cause is dear to my heart.

Kikoko Aid’s mission is, “To provide assistance, aid, comfort, care, nourishment, clothing, education and satisfaction of the development needs of the residents of Kikoko Village, in the Eastern Province of Kenya, including, but not limited to, providing recreational, educational, and employment opportunities, and such other charitable benefits for the residents. To receive, and administer funds and property, and to apply the income and principal thereof for our charitable purposes.”

Our goal this year is to build a community center where residents will be able to go when in need. We plan to equip the center with modern technology, and educational materials to help the children of Kikoko have a fair chance in this competitive world.

Kikoko Aid’s future goals will all be around improving Kikoko community in general, e.g. renovating schools, providing food and clean water, improving the local clinic, creating job opportunities by renovating and running a rundown community bakery, among other projects.

The Reality Mine Film Indiegogo


Reality Mine

Help Fund Reality Mine, a psycho-drama focussing on how internet surveillance allows governments – and worse – to control and destroy peoples’ lives.

Hi, I’m Nick Goulden, the director of the recently shot film, Reality Mine, starring Rock’n’Rolla’s Michael Ryan, Jersey Boys’s Jye Frasca and Sean Browne.

Please help us complete our film! Prinicpal photogrpahy took place 19-21 July and we’re raising funds to complete the post-production to get our film finished to the highest standard and get it out to competition, distribution, and to you!

We’ve got a brilliant, award-winning team, so please take a quick look and, if you like the project, please help us!


Reality Mine is a psychological short drama exploring the modern reality in which unprecedented levels of knowledge grant unheard of power, open to abuse by governments – or anyone with the right know-how.

When family man Max Keller is implicated in alleged animal rights terrorism, arson and murder carried out by Dan, his brother, he must choose between loyalty to his brother and protecting his family – and himself. What would you do?

It focusses on the modern reality – much in news recently – of how governments and other organisations covertly trawl the internet for information, building up vast pools of data on millions of individuals.

One such term for this is ‘Reality Mining’:

“Reality mining is using the digital breadcrumbs we leave in everyday life to understand our behaviour. So, as you walk around with a cellphone, you leave position markers; you call people, you use your credit card… And we can collect those up to build a psychological profile of you…”– Professor Sandy Pentland, Director of the Human Dynamics Laboratory, MIT

With virtually unlimited access to data, it is now possible to build a profile of someone complete to the last detail. The result is that, without fully realising it, we have entered into a new reality whereby the government can know everything there is to know about us.

Who is to stop them abusing that power?

We feel this is a vitally important issue that is ill-understood in the popular conscience. We need your help to make this film, and spread the word.

Why Should You Help?

Reality Mine focusses on important issues that affect us all and that need exploring. With your help, it’s also going to be a cracking film that gets seen.

The more resources we have, the more we can spread the word to get it, and the issues it represents, seen by as many people as possible.

Where Does Your Funding Go?

In order to make this as good a project as it deserves to be, we need £10,000. We already have nearly £5,000 in place and so we are asking you to help us with the remaining £5000.

We have already completed principal photography, filming from 19-21 July, in London and in Berkshire, England.

Here’s the basic budget:

  • £2000 – Camera & Lighting
  • £500 – Travel & Vehicle Hire
  • £750 – Catering
  • £300 – Props & Set Design
  • £150 – Costume
  • £100 – Make-Up, Hair & Prosthetics
  • £600 – Cast
  • £550 – Locations
  • £500 – Special Effects
  • £500 – Crew Expenses
  • £250 – Admin Costs & Pre-Production
  • £1000 – Offline Edit
  • £400 – VFX
  • £500 – Sound Design & ADR
  • £300 – Original Composition
  • £650 – Online Edit & Versioning
  • £250 – DVD’s, honouring perk commitments
  • £700 – Festivals & Marketing
  • TOTAL: £10,000

If we can raise more, we’ll be able to put more into the film!

And What Do You Get For Helping?

We are truly humbled that you are even considering supporting this film and will pay you back as best we can. Please take a look opposite at the possible perks – from signed photos of our cast tosigned scripts, from a thank you in the credits to a full executive producer credit, the list goes on. We’re even giving away props from the film and other memorabilia – we hope there’s something for everyone.

What Happens Next?

FIlming is complete and Post-production has already begun. We’ll be making regular updates during the filming process and are scheduled to have the final cut complete by the end of Autumn 2013 in time for film festivals in 2014. Please join us on the journey, and spread the word!

Can You Help Without Contributing To Funding?

Yes! Please spread the word about the film – we want as many people to know about it as possible. Films are no good if no-one knows about them!

Go Ahead and Sang The Blues Kickstarter

“Go Ahead And Sang The Blues!” This says it all!

“Go Ahead And Sang The Blues” is going to be a solid blues album which will include some down home, old school style blues and feature some of Arkansas’ favorite blues musicians. Our rythmn section will include international blues bassist John Davies and drummer Johnny Arredondo, We have approached international blues harmonica player RJ Mischo and blues guitarist Earl Cates to lay down a few tracks as well. We will have other guests on this album too and are excited to be working with blues promoter Charles Ragsdell who will also be producing the album. “Go Ahead And Sang The Blues” will include at least 9 new original songs as well as our versions of an old Lightening Hopkins tune, an old Sister Rosetta Tharpe tune and a song written by Chicago blues singer Karen Carroll. How many songs we track will depend on our budget. We are excited about this CD because the original tunes are close to the heart and have been getting a tremendous response at the live shows. There will be no holding back on the emotion that these songs need in the vocals or musicianship.

Making an album is very expensive and can be very difficult for independent artists to accomplish without some sort of support. The most common support would be to borrow the funds, find an investor, or sign with a label to support the cost. We wanted to keep out the middle men and include our listeners so we thought, why not involve our listeners in helping toward making this album possible rather than going through an investor or label. This keeps it personable and independent. Independent artists are like small cooperation’s all over the globe and we must come up with creative ways to support our cooperation’s. The listeners are the ones who make it possible for us to do what we do and are the ones who support our small cooperation’s, so they should be put first and involved in this process. In return we thank them personally and strive to continue to put out good medicine.

We have already had $2000 donated to this project. We estimate that it will take around $7000 to complete it in the manner we hope to. If we are to raise more than our goal then that will allow us to order more bulk CD’s and invest in more dynamic promotions. We are able to record this album at such a low rate because of the kindness and generosity of those involved.
