Kickstarter.com embraced by 'Fit For Rivals' for album funding

I just saw that local band 'Fit For Rivals' started a Kickstarter page to help fund the production for their next album. While I am new to their music, I can say they sound good and that it's awesome they took the web to keep it alive.

'SUNBEARS!' as you may know did and overreached their pledged goal of $8,000 with $9,555. I would love this idea to be applied to other local bands or projects that maybe aren't even well known. Embrace what resources you can!

If you wanted to help back the album you have about a month to do so in this way.

Toya Carter Essay Contest

Toya Carter Essay Contest

A Memorial Day Weekend, Family Affair with Toya Carter - Monday, May 30th, 2011; 11a-3p This will be an event in a local park in downtown Jacksonville where Toya Carter will address at-risk teens sharing her struggles in growing up as a teen without parents; and how she pressed on to become a successful author and celebrity. On her hit television show with 1.5 million viewers, “Toya: A Family Affair”, Toya is shown as having a beautiful home, good friends and pursing her dreams in fashion design. But her life has been full of peaks and valleys. Abandoned by her parents as a child, she was passed from family member to family member as her mother sank deeper into drug addiction. Feeling unloved and unwelcomed, Toya fell into the arms of a 15-year old rising musical star Dwayne Michael Carter, known these days as the rapper “Lil Wayne” and ended up pregnant at the tender age of 14.
