Fundraiser: Build a DRUM! With Dr. Thelonious D. RUM!

Invited back to the celebrations at the foot of the MAN, once AGAIN we're traversing to the playa (this time as part of the MIDWAY) to gift over 100 DJEMBES, ASHIKOS and DOUMBEKS!

Walk across our dusty threshold. Perhaps you encounter a bearded lady, a peanut vendor, a ring mistress, the darling diva, or if you're lucky, the good Doctor Thelonious D. RUM. We'll lure you in, HOOK you, and you'll play 5 games of chance. Win 1 - Win 2 - Win 3 - Win 4 - Win 5... GET A RUN TO WIN A DRUM! Trade in all your tokens and our fortune teller will ask the universe whether you are one of the CHOSEN ones: DO YOU GET TO BUILD YOUR OWN DRUM ON THE PLAYA? If the tea leaves say yes...

You'll build your OWN DRUM under the vagabodian tutelage of our traveling medicine team. You'll cross into our elusive drum-building workshop, escaping the heat of the open playa, and spend as much time as you'd like finishing your drum coupled with a lesson or two from The Fine Dr. Thelonious D. RUM and his twisted Caravan.

Traveling from upstate NY, Boston, New Orleans, Dallas, and Los Angeles, our team needs your help. We've got a VARDO full of treats, trinkets, and treasures (and over 100 handmade quality drum shells for YOU worth $100 a pop in the default world)...but it's a monster haul to the playa from our NY home base, and we've still got A LOT more prep to do for you.

So if you'll be so kind, please click on over to our Indie site and do the deed! We've raised about 10% of our funding needs- please help us inch a little closer to that goal line!

Edited to add New campaign

While I didn't build a drum last year I did see your spot in the souk and I've got to say, what a kickass and participatory approach to gifting! I love the way you've incorporated the theme into the project for this year - good luck!

Thanks, trilo! We had such a blast last year - stop by and say hello this time around! We spent all week cutting the top off an Amish wagon and decorating it a la Carnival of Mirrors theme -- really looking forward to our Midway booth and collaborating with our awesome Carny neighbors! :-)

Somebody needs to bring or build a drum this size that you can hear from trash fence to trash fence! Who needs electronic music?

Yes indeed. While you kid, we're working on something equally as cool - a right-on-rhythmic-party-wall, if you will. :)

Maybe next year our project will be a giant communal drum installation in deep playa. Would need to figure out how to keep the skin from getting sunburned, though. Poor lil goat. 8) 8) 8)

Bumping this up --- we've got 8 days left of our fundraiser and a lot of money to find under the covers. We'd appreciate the help if you can spare a few wooden nickels! :)

SO FAR:

We've built you a Romanian Vardo (full size functional gypsy wagon made out of the base of an Amish buggy)!
We've got 25 shells built for you to turn into drums and take home!

Correct, you can not edit your post after 30 minutes from the time of posting. You can post an additional campaign (I think the limit is 3 per year), exactly as you've done by posting it as a reply in the thread.

I'll make an edit to the post for you to include the new link. Good luck!
