campaign for Between the Seas Festival of Mediterranean perf. arts

I'd like to bring to your attention the fundraising campaign for Between the Seas Festival on Kickstarter:

I hope you will consider showing your support by making a donation or by helping us to spread the word as far and wide to people who may be interested in donating. As a very young organization we significantly rely on the support of individual donors- it is the only way for us to ensure that we will continue offering performance opportunities to artists from across the Mediterranean region. We are the only festival with this mission in North America and with everyone's help we hope to keep up the work and grow!

Thank you in advance and I am at your disposal to answer any questions with regards to the fundrasier and this year's festival.
