Update on April 23rd, 2014

Nerd HQ Army…

 

We are closing in on the end of a long journey. 43 days we go we launched a crowd funding campaign that was different than most others, a campaign without perks that focused on Nerd HQ as the incentive. Nerd HQ is special, and as of this update, 13,363 of you agree with us.

 

Nerd HQ is able to bring happiness to fans and celebrities alike for 4 days at Petco Park in San Diego. It also brings entertainment to people all over the world through the streaming “Conversations for a Cause” series. Over 25 hours of amazing, fan friendly Q&A’s that are unlike anything else. Those Conversations, along with all the photos, signings, and auctions, help us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Operation Smile that change the lives of children all over the world. We couldn’t be more honored that you believe in Nerd HQ and the team that puts it together.

 

Since you have been so supportive of the campaign, we have one last  incentive for everyone. It’s personal, it’s fun, and we think you will enjoy it.

 

Here’s our LAST INCENTIVE for the final 48 hours of the campaign: Every backer that gives at least $5 (or more) is entered to win 1 of 48 – that’s right  FORTY EIGHT – special prizes! Anyone who contributes from 11:59pm PDT TONIGHT through the end of the campaign is entered to win!! So what is the prize? A PERSONALIZED SELFIE FROM ZACHARY LEVI. Zac will hand write you a thank you message, hold it up for a selfie and send it to you via email!

 

So remember, in order to win, you must contribute $5 or more in the last 48 hours of the campaign! As an added bonus, if we reach $333,000 by the end of campaign, ONE WINNER will get that special visit by Zac himself no matter where you live AND we’ll invite some local fellow nerds while he’s in your area!

 

Go to www.Iwantmynerdhq.com to support the campaign.

 

We are so thankful for all of your support. Let’s make these last 48 hours the best yet!!

Update on April 21st, 2014

When we reach 333K, one third of our one million dollar goal, every funder that has contributed $5 or more to the campaign will be automatically entered to win the most awesome prize offered to date, a visit from Zachary Levi. That’s right, a funder somewhere in the Continental United States (sorry international funders)  WORLD will win a visit from Zac in July before Nerd HQ. He will fly to the nearest city and accompany the winner and a guest to dinner.

 

And that’s not all.

 

After the city is chosen, all funders in the area are invited to meet Zac to say hello, grab an autograph, and take photos after the dinner with the selected funder. The Nerd Machine will find a venue close to the winner’s location that can accommodate the event, dependent on how many attendees want to come. When all the details are arranged, we will ask funders who live close enough to attend to RSVP so we can get an accurate count for the venue.

 

Remember, this incentive is only possible if we reach 333K during the campaign.

We can’t wait to hit the next milestone with you nerds and get us closer to our goal.

 

Again, we are so appreciative of your continued support.

Update on April 19th, 2014

Dear Friends,

This crazy adventure is in the home stretch and we couldn’t be more humbled by the outpouring of love and support we have received from each and every one of you.

 

We were told when we started this process that crowd-funding serves two goals – fundraising for our event and bringing attention to Nerd HQ in hopes of attracting potential sponsors. We want to tell you that over 12,000 of you have helped us do just that. Thanks to your support and your continued promotion of our event, we are finalizing some agreements with sponsors that, along with what you have contributed, will make NERD HQ 2014 possible. We ask for your continued support as we bring this campaign to an end in the next next Friday, April 25th.

 

Do you have one last push left for us? Can we tell all our friends, family, social media followers that we will continue to offer fun incentives over the next week and a half? Let’s see how much we can make that fan-driven number rise before we run out of time on April 25! Every cent raised goes to producing the greatest Nerd HQ ever!

 

None of this would be possible without you, our fans and friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you and stay tuned for some final days fun!

Remember, we must reach 333K for the visit from Zachary Levi to kick in, so keep spreading the Nerd HQ message.

Update for April 13, 2014-New information for all funders

Nerds, we continue to be amazed by your loyal support. We reached a milestone of 250K on Friday and for that we are eternally grateful. There is still a lot to do in the last 2 weeks of the campaign, but we know that with your help we will get even closer to our goal.

 

Since we reached 250K yesterday, that means 5 of you have won Skype calls with Zachary Levi. We will be contacting the winners on Monday and your calls will happen next week. So excited that we were able to reach that goal and offer this unique opportunity for our funders.

 

Now, for the next big incentive. When we reach 333K, one third of our one million dollar goal, every funder that has contributed $5 or more to the campaign will be automatically entered to win the most awesome prize offered to date, a visit from Zachary Levi. That’s right, a funder somewhere in the Continental United States (sorry international funders)  WORLD will win a visit from Zac in July before Nerd HQ. He will fly to the nearest city and accompany the winner and a guest to dinner.

 

And that’s not all.

 

After the city is chosen, all funders in the area are invited to meet Zac to say hello, grab an autograph, and take photos after the dinner with the selected funder. The Nerd Machine will find a venue close to the winner’s location that can accommodate the event, dependent on how many attendees want to come.

    First of all , thank you NerdHQ for all your work so far 🙂

    Second , may i suggest couple of perks for the Indiegogo campaign ?
    – You can offer an Opening Question perk ( high donation )
    – A guaranteed question at some point in an interview
    ( of course these perks are available to not-attending interviews and for the yourtube videos )

    Well that would be fun!

    I’m trying to make my donation, but I can not … unfortunately. I will try again.!

    This is a long shot and a very last min. idea, but I am going to be at Salt Lake Comic con the 17-19th. Was just thinking that if you had stickers or buttons, I would be happy to pass some out there. I would be happy to wear a tee around as well to help spread the word.

    what if an international funder won, and made their way to a US city?

  8. ThuyApril 12th, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    Does Anchorage, Alaska count as part of the Continental United States. You’ll be amazed at how many people think we are a foreign country and not part of the United States. This also raises the question about Hawaii too. We both usually get the short end of the stick on many contest, prizes and delivery of shipped goods.

    I think Zac would love to come to Brazil… just saying! Just kidding guys, i’m so happy that you already raise that much, and for me the biggest prize to my donation will be see Nerd HQ happen AND with no injury! Sending love, from brazil, to all the nerd machine family!

    would be super cool for NerdHQ to come to Brisbane, Australia 😀 or Zachary Levi could come to OzComic Con 😛

  11. Sittie AyeeshaApril 19th, 2014 at 11:32 am

    what if an international funder won? What would happen then? 🙂

  12. Sittie AyeeshaApril 19th, 2014 at 11:34 am

    It really sucks that we don’t have comic con here.

  13. Firefly218April 19th, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Nerd HQ needs to come to Austin. Our weird city has some of the most devout, passionate nerds you’ll meet.

  14. JaJune 14th, 2014 at 12:17 pm
