How you can Help, not Yelp!

Share: Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Here is a great comment from our supporter “Bap” that can be read directly from our Kickstarter page.  Its a great gathering of information on how you can help tell people about our project.

Kickstarter comment “Bap”:

The Minimum Funding Goal Has Been Done, But We are Not Done Yet!

The current funding barely covers the cost to getting this film to finalization. The staff is working without pay and volunteers are helping. There are hard costs that if compromised will affect the impact and reach of this message. Your help is needed. Remember, Pebble, a smart watch just raised $20.3 million in 30 days on Kickstarter (We only have $20.24 million to go).

What can you do?

Contributions would be nice; however, you can build visibility in things you do daily.
There are very few days to go, so please get the word out. If you have access to any of the following social media accounts, please mention this program using the Kickstarter url: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1299637435/billion-dollar-bully.

Here is the short code link: http://tinyurl.com/nwoabjv

  • My customers who book also get their reviews hidden. As of 11/23/15 9 of them are hidden all positive, all negative is showing. A customer just wrote on one yesterday and it’s already hidden. I told her yelp is fraudulant I was able to convince them to book after reading the only noticed reviews and they did. Had a wonderful time she goes on Yelp to write it and they hide it. like the gangsters they are. Forcing business to be on this site should be the next YELP lawsuit
