Make a Pledge Before July 15th!

The Last 2 Days!

The Memory Community Project has been on Kickstarter since May 16th. Come on in to join the two backers. Don’t’ leave them alone. You can be so influential by just spreading the word or making a donation. But we won’t cry if you don’t feel like helping. We will simply continue to try, try, and try!

You may find we don’t have fancy photos and our video seems plain. You may even find our official website needs a lot more work. All this is because we really want to realize this project so even we literally don’t have money we are presenting whatever we have been able to do before your eyes. Every dollar means a chance for our project. Time flies. There are only 40 days left, and we are having a long way to reach our humble goal.

We have been receiving tremendous good reviews of the project and invited to talk about it by three nursing homes, but we won’t be able to offer our services to them if we can’t get the project successfully funded before July 15th.

Please help the project at http://www.kickstarter.com/e/WkXDk/projects/541859881/memory-community so we can start our services for elders in our communities with upgraded equipment and better productions.

Thank you so much, backers! We wish you well.
