Creator of board game Operation needs money for a real operation

Operation

Feed-twFeed-fb

A sad bit of news that’ll have you feeling all kinds of nostalgic: The inventor of the classic board game Operation needs an operation.

John Spinello invented a bare-bones version of what would one day become Operation in 1964. He sold his prototype to a toy invention company for $500. Milton Bradley licensed the idea, and the game of Operation was born.

Fast-forward to now — some 50 years later — and 77-year-old John Spinello is in a difficult financial situation.

Game inventors Tim Walsh and Peggy Brown say Spinello is in need of a medical procedure, so they’ve started a Crowdrise campaign to raise money for his operation Read more…

Don’t Bury Your Lede!

4 days ago

Editor’s Note: Thinking about starting a crowdfunding campaign but don’t know where to begin? Check out the advice column below from Rose Spinelli, a crowdfunding campaign consultant who runs The Crowdfundamentals and was named as a top 100 crowdfunding thought leader. Rose is answering questions from the crowd about raising cash via rewards-based crowdfunding. You can submit your own questions to Rose via tweet, Facebook or Google Plus comment, or leaving it in the comments below. You can find her previous tips here.

The question, via Facebook:

Alyssa Smith: Hi Rose! I hope I’m next in line to drop you a line! Project Raise has launched…woohoo!… and is raising people’s spirits every day. I give free compliments and inspirational sayings on slips of paper to friends or innocent bystanders anonymously, with an ask to share my campaign link gofund.me/AndresAlyssa with #projectraise in order to pay it forward, with thanks in advance. However, I need to up the ante and translate this to real donations. Could you please take a look at my page and let me know if you have advice on the best way to accomplish that? It means a lot! Hope to hear from you soon. –Alyssa

The answer:

A little background: Before posting her question on Facebook, Alyssa emailed me. I get lots and lots of “cold” emails asking me to write about campaigns but hers caught my eye. Here it is:

When life doesn’t work out quite right, just yell “Plot twist!” and keep on going. You are glowing with confidence and you’ll spread happiness in so many ways today! Keep it up!

#projectraise

You have been tagged by Project Raise! Someone who is raising money wanted to raise your spirits! Paying someone else a compliment today and checking out and sharing this link gofund.me/AndresAlyssa on social media with #projectraise (or even consider donating of you can!) is how you can pay it forward.

#projectraise is happening in and around Rochester, NY through social media and actual paper compliments being left for innocent bystanders, and is hoping to brighten the spirits of many more people, so let me know if you would like to get more information or feature a cool thing like this on your blog!

Thanks!

Alyssa

Fun, right? There’s something about being “tagged” online by someone who’s not aggressively asking something — that feels inclusive and brings a little piece of connectivity into our (my) online life. And Alyssa certainly projects a strong voice that comes across as sincere, happy, and altruistic. So I wrote her back and congratulated her for getting my attention.

Here’s what she wrote back:

Hi Rose!

Thanks so much for reaching out! It’s so nice to hear back from you! In a sea of email, I am glad this caught your attention and I hope not to disappoint. I like to start off with a positive spin on things and see where it gets me, that brought my inspiration for Project Raise. I have had such a down in the dumps, bad luck filled past 3 months that I knew if I were going to ever get back up on my feet, I would have to start with something cool like taking what I did have — a positive spirit and an endless amount of people to say good words to — and take a risk.

Of course, when people contribute to crowdfunding campaigns they take risks, too. Instead of waiting around to just say “thanks” to contributors I may never get (which of course I still will thank!), I go out and leave compliments and say thank you in advance. That way, when I see the positive reactions of individuals I may or may not know after these kind words or bits of inspiration brighten their day, I know I accomplished something small in the grand scheme of raising… spirits and funds. It seemed like something most people may not try so I did. Andres also says hello as he is working on his prototype at the moment!

Have a great day,

Alyssa

No doubt, Alyssa can write a killer email. The only problem was that when I read the narrative on her campaign page and looked at the video I figured I’d get all my questioned answered. But I didn’t.

So if you haven’t, go back to the GoFundMe page and read it now.

My biggest comment is that this campaign needs a good editor. Some of the most informative nuggets that made it into the personal emails she sent to me never made it into her campaign narrative. (I highlighted them in boldface print above.) I love her playful language and fun photos — and would never suggest that Alyssa lose any of those qualities; those passages help us get a feel for who she and Andres are as young aspirational and educated biochemical engineers. But in order to get funds, which this campaign is not successfully doing so far, the page needs a serious meeting with an editor’s red pencil. So:

1. What is this campaign about?

It’s about Andres’ invention, a biochip that claims to analyze data that can be used to diagnose concussions in athletes. If this invention works, this is fabulous idea. The problem of sports leading to concussions is constantly in the news these days — newsjacking opportunity!

But the actual product details are literally buried within the fun facts and photos about the couple such that we can’t tell what the campaign is really about. So get organized. Have the important information up top. You can intersperse with fun stuff, but do so carefully. If you can’t do it yourself, find someone who can help you with it.

2. How can the storytelling can be improved?

Slow down. Take us through the laymen’s science. Describe how you arrived at the discovery of what this chip can do. Tell us at what stage of completion your work is at. Have any professionals looked at it? Give us testimonials, if so. In other words, prove it. With so many possible scams circulating, especially in the health category of campaigns, you need to build our trust.

3. And what about Project Raise?

Project Raise is what Alyssa used to get my attention. Though it sounded like a good idea to get momentum going for the campaign, within the campaign itself it turns out to be a red herring. In other words, there’s no follow through on how it fits into the campaign as a whole, and that’s a shame. If it ultimately has no bearing on this biochip campaign, I’m sorry to say you should lose it because you’re just going to confuse your audience. (I suggest finding a way to use it, not lose it, especially since you offer no rewards.)

4. How can the video be improved?

The first suggestion — a really simple fix — is to keep the text on the screen for several seconds longer so we actually have time to read and absorb the message. I struggled to keep up and even when I paused to read the text I still felt the idea itself was given short shrift. So, again, you need a focused eye to see what’s missing and add those details where needed. (I love the music, though.)

5. Is GoFundMe the best choice for this campaign?

My sense is no. The association we make with that platform is a place to raise funds for personal challenging circumstances such as illnesses. I suspect you opted to use that platform because the message you wanted to share to the world was still unclear to you. Get that clarity and you may choose to launch on a different site.

The bottom line is… I’m not worried about Alyssa and Andres. They are smart, young, and willing to learn. Whether crowdfunding works for them or not, I know that their passion will take them far in life.
