If you didn’t see the email, or the Facebook posts, or the Twitter tweets… our Shakespeare is Universal campaign has reached its goal, with 3 days to spare! If you’re one of those 100 you will get your shirt, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining our cause. As I wrote in a previous email this wasn’t just an opportunity to go fishing for funds, this was a bit of a crisis of faith on my part, and I’d really convinced myself that if after all these years I couldn’t find an audience of 100 people who were willing to make a real world commitment to what we were trying to do here? Let’s just say I was seriously thinking about how I’d be spending my time going forward.
BUT! That’s all in the past, because you do like Shakespeare, you really really like Shakespeare, and I am a very happy geek heading off into the weekend. I will stop checking my dashboard every 3 minutes like I’ve been doing for the last 3 weeks, and I will sleep soundly.
Please note that the campaign does not officially end until sometime Monday afternoon (the page actually has a counter), so if you planned on buying a shirt you still have time to do so. Of course you won’t get to ride the rollercoaster that we all just did of not knowing whether they’d ever exist! You’ll just know you’re getting yours. And that’s ok, too. Shakespeare for everybody!
