30-Day Killer Crowdfund Report,
Perk Alerts & New Press

We're less than 36% away from our goal with 29 days left to take it to the top! I cannot thank you enough for helping me raise over $64,000 in the first 30 days of the Indiegogo campaign. I'm out here hustling harder than I ever have in my life, my start-up angels have my back, the press is pressing, and we're this close to making The Lit. Bar a reality.

30-day campaign highlights include filmmaker, Michael Moore, claiming a Major Key to The Lit. Bar; a $2,000 contribution from Bx Bookworm, Rachel Villanueva Diomede; 1,048 more of us coming together to be the change we want see in the Bronx; and the only media feature we haven't landed is a Bible verse (see below). Did I say "thank you"?

Let's go all the way up! Only one set of tickets to the Pre-Opening Boogie Down remain, with 13 additional perks levels to choose from starting at just $10, and exciting new updates, videos, and comments are pouring onto the campaign page. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are lit with supporters @thelitbar spreading awareness to help reach our goal! Join the fun by using Indiegogo's share tools, forwarding this email blast, and texting the campaign link to friends and family. #thebronxreads

Ever since he left the White House, Obama has been wearing less and going out more, running out of pages in his passport. For those late nights when you need his love,  I offer you a SIGNED COPY of THE OBAMA LEGACY by Mike Ducheine--a book that ignores alternative facts in order to sketch a true picture of our 44th President.
