We raised $968 in our first Indiegogo campaign. But now, with all the free government publicity, we’ve launched a second crowdfunding campaign to support a “Harperman Cross-Canada Sing-Along” on Parliament Hill and 14 other locations across Canada on Thursday, September 17th. We are asking people to go to the Indiegogo page to to make a donation and help spread the word.
