Los Angeles, CA, USA (April 7, 2015) — This past March, The Walt Disney Birthplace launched the “Let’s Make It Beautiful!” fundraising campaign to support Phase Two of the restoration.
To date, the campaign has already raised over $20,000. But to complete the next stages of the restoration, the total amount required is $40,000 and there are only 14 days left in the campaign.
This phase of the restoration process will focus on exterior beautification of the property. Todd Regan, the Executive Director of the Walt Disney Birthplace, said, “With the help of our supporters, we’ll transform the house into the beautiful icon we all want it to be. The Birthplace will be revitalized with a restored front porch, a white picket fence, rose gardens, trees, benches and recreations of the original doors and windows on the home. We will also complete the installation of engraved paver stones which so many people have generously donated.”
The front doors are now being manufactured and are sponsored by Garner Holt Productions, creators of some of the world’s most beautiful and technologically advanced animatronic figures. (www.garnerholt.com)
For this Indiegogo campaign, the project has introduced some new “perks:” four new collectible pins, a new T-shirt design, a new embroidered polo shirt, and several new ways for contributors to put their name on the home, like a double-size paver stone, dedicated picket fence posts, sponsored rose bushes, trees, and benches.
This campaign will be one of the last chances anyone will have to order a custom-inscribed piece to be added to the Birthplace.
Mr. Regan added, “If you can make a contribution to this campaign, please do so now by visiting: igg.me/at/WDB You can also support the campaign by spreading the word and the campaign link over Facebook, Twitter, and whatever social networks you prefer – Sharing is tremendously helpful!
“Together, we can make The Walt Disney Birthplace really bloom this Spring!”
