Untapped - Kickstarter Campaign
Untapped is a Kickstarter campaign created by Seattle-based tap dancer Jessie Sawyers to raise $100,000 for a new live stage show conceived by tap master Mark Mendonca. Kickstarter is an online fundraising platform which celebrates the significance that each individual has - through even the smallest action - to creates waves of change in a community. Individuals can become backers to Untapped on Kickstarter by pledging as little as $1, and they will receive exciting pledge packages in return. These packages are offered at multiple contribution levels and feature products and experiences in conjunction with the launch of Mark's show.
The campaign closes on March 30th, 2011 and support is vital to its success. This is an all-or-nothing campaign, meaning, if the entire $100,000 goal is not met before the deadline, everyone receives their money back. Pledges are accepted worldwide, and it is planned that Mark's show will tour both nationally and internationally.
