We have the best fans in the world, you know that?
Since we launched the IndieGoGo campaign about 10 days ago, we’ve been overcome with emotion every time someone donates, and get all misty eyed reading some of your comments. Even more amazing to me us is that people actually read this blog or our Twitter and pay attention to all the crap that’s coming out of my mouth. After only a few days of our campaign, I get an email from another girl named Alison who says she’s a big fan and knows how hopeless I am with technology (it’s true! I so crazy!). Anyhow, said Ms. Alison is a professional film editing and post-production type person, and offers out of the goodness of her heart to come to our kitchen to shoot a video for our IndieGoGo! SERIOUSLY!!
Ms. Alison Grasso has totally blown a hole in my whole “Alisons who spell their name with only ONE ‘L’ are inherently evil-that’s how you tell them apart from us normal, two “L” Allisons. Like how if you’re talkng to twins and you’re trying to figure out which one is evil, you go with the one that has a goatee” theory.
That random act of kindness alone would normally be enough to make my heart swell up with so much joy that I feel it could burst, but yet there’s more!!! Let me introduce you to Mr. Steven Cobb. Steve is one of our fans who reached out to us over Twitter last year, and since then we’ve become friends in the “Tweeting back and forth and seeing each other at events” sort of way (which, sadly, constitutes 90% of all of my adult relationships). He’s also one of the most altruistic and generous people I’ve ever met. So of course, when we announced that we’re donating 25% of all private deliveries this week to help Japan, I wasn’t surprised at all to hear that he wanted to order cupcakes.
However, what DID surprise me was that he wanted to buy two dozen, but DIDN’T personally want the cupcakes. In fact, he doesn’t even have anyone in particular he wants to send them to. He just wants to be able to contribute to the cause in some way, and be able to send cupcakes to whomever wants them to brighten up their day. Now how amazing is that?!!?!?! (And YES ladies, he’s single!)
Now the inevitable question: who should these two dozen cupcakes go to? Join the discussion on Facebook- make the case for yourself or nominate someone you think who deserves it. We’ll pick two lucky people by the end of the week to receive a little ray of sunshine from our good friend Steve.
Best fans ever. For real.
