Working on my first ever indiegogo campaign!
I’ve been working on this for a few days and I’m almost ready to send it out! I still have some tweaks to do. And I need to do (yet ANOTHER) video.
So. You’re kind of a fan of me and whatnot (since you are on my page and all) Can you take a few minutes to check out the write-up below and give me some feedback? Thanks for your time!
Send LannaLee on the Road!
Hi. I’m Lanna Lee Maheux and I’m the host of the digital salon/podcast Lounging with LannaLee. I’m an ex-clown, speaker, podcaster, actor, geek, silly person, femme fatale, singer, lover, twit, and recovering Stand-Up Comic who lives in Westbrook, Maine.
The Lounging with LannaLee digital salon features adventures in conversation, an in-person, heart-to-heart, unedited talk between me and another person. My goal is to inspire, delight and amuse the audicence while promoting the art of conversation. One way to do that is to take Lounging with LannaLee on the road, out of it’s comfort zone; I have been asked to speak at a conference in Kansas. This is a great opporunity for me to talk with new guests and interest new listeners, but in order to do that I need your help.
I need to raise $3000 to cover the cost of train/air travel, hotel and other amenities or I won’t be able to attend this conference. I am turning to you, my friends, fans and family, to ask for contributions. In exchange, I’m offering art, poetry, cushy plushies, and otherwise fantastic perks. Your contribution will help me get to Kansas, and further, it will help Lounging with LannaLee power up to the next level. Thanks!

Because indiegogo has flexible funding, I keep all funds raised for this campaign. That means if I fall short of my goal I can still get the funds I’ve earned.
But enough about that! Let’s hear what you get!

Lounging with LannaLee is a labor of love for me. I sit down with fascinating people and talk to them about their lives and the cool things they do. I am inspired by their passion and creativity. Your support will help me take Lounging with LannaLee to the next level.
In this digital age we sometimes forget to have in person and face-to-face conversations. It’s easier to Tweet something or chat on Facebook.
Lounging with LannaLee promotes in-person conversations by doing them on a public scale.
