I have an opportunity to perform in West Africa. I am reaching out to ask for your support for my "Ghana Bound" campaign on Indiegogo.

There are two ways to help: 
1. Contribute - even small contributions ($1, $5, etc.) raise their popularity and give them more visibility on the site. 

2. Post to Facebook - in the end, the more people hear about my campaign the more likely I am to meet my target.

Your help is deeply appreciated!

Tell them a fact, they will remember it.
Tell them a truth, they will believe it.
Tell them a story, it will live in their hearts forever.
