Dear Friends of the Steuben Parade:

This is an URGENT CALL TO ACTION .... As you know, we will once again
have the Steuben Parade broadcast live on the networks of PBS; this is
huge for the entire German-American community, but we need to take one
more step:

For all those who miss the Steuben Parade when it airs live, as well
as for our friends in Germany and the many German-Americans in parts
of the US where the Parade will not be on TV, we want to publish a
DVD, edited and produced professionally, and ready to ship by October
2012. For this, we need funding, and we are using Kickstarter to get
the entire German-American community involved. Please click here to go
to Kickstarter directly.

Here´s the deal: We are asking the community for $15,000 --- Anyone
and everyone can pledge, and every penny and every dollar counts! We
will only get the funds if the entire amount is raised until September
16, which is the end of Steuben Parade weekend. (If we do not raise
enough money, you will not be charged; thus, you will only support
this if it is successful!!)

So far, out of millions of people in the German-American community,
only 34 have donated to this fundraiser - we can do better than that.
Altogether, less than 100 individuals have donated to the Steuben
Parade in general. As German-Americans, we are a large community, the
largest ethnic groups in the country, to be clear. It would be a shame
if we couldn´t support our own culture and heritage at an appropriate
level. --- A big THANK YOU to all who have already donated; to all
others: a plea to consider making your pledge now. - Thanks.

Now, I would greatly appreciate it if we could count on your help.
Here´s what you can do:

	1. - Make a pledge; get a reward.

	2. - Forward this Email including the Flyer below.

	3. - Go directly to­ and share this fundraiser on
your Facebook profile, via Twitter, or Email.

	4. - Share this with your family and friends, and with everyone in your club.

	5. - "Like" this project on Facebook.

German-Americans all over the country can support this project; after
all, we will ship the DVD to anyone who supports us no matter where
they live.

A special note to our German-American clubs: Clubs and organizations
can make donations, too - not only individuals; please see if your
club can pledge. Maybe your club has marched in the Steuben Parade
before. Maybe you want to march one day. We need your support now, and
we greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us be successful.

I hope that many of you will be part of this important fundraiser... thank you.

General Chairman
