Everything helps

So we're a little over two weeks in on Indiegogo and we've lost some momentum as far as contributions but we're still doing good. I feel very loved and supported. I want to keep reaching out to more and more people, just like yarn bombing does. Next week or so will be day 27 / 83 days left which is our first quarter marker. I would like to have at least 25% of our goal at that point, $3750.

One of Indiegogo's strongest selling features is that it focuses on utilizing social media and online communications to help projects reach the right people.

Here are some things you can do to help:

Ask to feature it - If you go to our Indiegogo page and scroll down, right below the green perks box on the right, there's some pink text, Please click "feature it"! If we get enough people to do this Indiegogo might feature my project on the homepage which will help with the visibility.

Like us on Facebook - Make sure to like us on Facebook,, it's such small gesture but it makes all the difference. The more people who like us, the more fb popular we become which again, helps with our online visibility.

Follow this blog - please "follow it" because it helps my online visibility and feel free to bookmark it in your browser. Because Yarn Graffiti is based in the blog world, I'm keeping a production blog to log my journey as a filmmaker diving into the yarn bombing world.

Join the newsletter - subscribed to my Production Newsletter at you will automatically get updates on what the project is doing.

Tweet - On our indiegogo campaign there's a "tweet" button which makes this really easy for you. I'm @gonzography and John is @Jumpupfilms. You can look at our tweets for creative ideas for ways to mention the project. You can also follow us if you want.

Talk about it - Yes it's just that easy. Talk to your friends about it this amazing documentary. Yarn graffiti is amazing because it brings the urban graffiti world and the warm craft world together - it bridges generations, genders and generally just brings people together.

GIVE - this is an obvious one. We obviously need your contributions, small or large. I didn't put this first on the list because I know some of you can't right now or already have or whatever.


  1. Feature It:

    Yarn Graffiti is beautiful movement that really needs to be featured. In these days of negativity, sensationalism and doom and gloom we all need some beauty and creativity in our lives. And now with knitting becoming such a huge part of our lives, doctor's prescribe to both men and women to release stress, grandmas are teaching their grandkids and the hipsters have picked it up as a hobby they can actually do (even when many of them can't even cook!). Consider featuring this idea!
