The Magic of Kuha’o Case

So this kind of thing happens all the time. You’re blind, and someone says, “You know, maybe a piano would be a fun instrument to learn. And so you start messing around with it, and find out that you can play really well. Self-taught. You can’t read sheet music.

And then, someone else learns of your skill and asks you to demo it, like such (this video is long, but totally worth it to get the full impact):

And then it dawns on you: you want to make an album and share what you’ve learned. And you have a new friend who can help. And… here’s the crazy part, if you just spend a few hours setting up a little website, you can ask the Internet for a few bucks, not much at all, and get the whole thing launched.

This project costs a total of $30K to launch. By comparison, another Kickstarter to help with just the TOURING costs of making an album was posted for $1 Million (and it succeeded). For you and me to give $10 each (I gave a bit more, but just say), we could close this project as successful in 10 minutes.

Why? Because there are thousands and thousands of us. It would take 2200 of us to give $10 each, and this guy gets to make his album. But before you decide, watch the video below:

I’m only asking YOU for $10. If you share it with your community, then maybe it’ll be worth $20. And then it’ll only take 1100 of us 10 minutes to fund this.

Bet we could. You ready?

  • SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!!

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ
    MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking

    this is the absolute complete truth. THIS IS NO JOKE!!!!!

    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from
    everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians
    that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally
    revealing that they can read minds. If all over a billion Asians where to show
    facial expressions all the time just as much as non Asians, integrate and
    associate with non Asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative,
    then a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by
    accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or
    visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or
    funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was
    that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally
    say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If
    they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more
    people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those
    people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate
    with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any
    accidents happen in the first place.

    I know this may sound crazy,
    impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN IT’S TRUE

    YOU HAVE TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!!

    THE WORLD HAS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!!!!!!

    Every single Asian alive is hiding their mind
    reading abilities, they don’t want ANYBODY to know that they can read minds,
    they will always deny that they can read minds, they will lie about having mind
    reading abilities forever!!!!

    Because they value hiding their mind reading
    abilities more than their own lives!

    That’s why nobody knows about it!

    Absolutely amazing. As someone that took piano lessons for 5 years, can’t play by ear, but only by reading music… omg. Thank you for sharing! Off to donate my $10. This boy needs a piano!

  • Dave

    this guy is cool. the question i can’t seem to get answered by looking at the kickstart website is: how are the funds dispersed and what happens if they don’t deliver? No because people are dishonest, but because it is very hard to bring a project to fruition and often the money gets spent poorly and in the end there is little to show for it. Because people only spent $25 each, no one cares and that’s it. Does Kickstart have something in place to help mitigate that?

    • Brad White

      You only pay your pledge when the threshold is reached. Basically, a pledge is a pre-authorization to Amazon to charge your card at the close of the project only if the minimum has been reached. Make sense?

    • Andy Thunell

      Dave, Brad is absolutely right. The only way that the credit cards get charged is if the project you have “backed” is successfully funded. In this case, the goal is $30,000 and if the 30 days ends and the project has raised even a hundred bucks less than that, the credit cards don’t get charged and the project will not get any of that money.

      As far as delivering on the project, i am the project creator and we will fulfill all of the orders and rewards associated with the funds that were raised before anything else is done with the money. You’re right, i guess it is a trust thing but i can assure you if the funds are raised we will deliver. That is a genuine concern and i’ve had that same concern with other projects on kickstarter, but i assure you and all those that play a part in this, we will keep you informed every step of the way.

      • Dave

        thanks for the honest reply andy, and for not making me feel like a shmuck for asking the question.

    You know what? I ran errands today and piddled away more than $10 on drive thru coffee at Tim Hortons and other needless shit…so obviously, I have at least that much to spare . I’ll make my OWN coffee for the next couple of days. Let’s buy a piano for Kuha’O

    • http://chrisbrogan.com/ Chris Brogan

      Hooray!

  • Andy Thunell

    Chris thank you so much for taking the time to write this about Kuha’o. This definitely put something in motion for the project and as the project creator and the one who gets to spend the next month by Kuha’o's side, let me tell you that Kuha’o sends his thanks as well. And a huge thanks to those that have pledged to the project and those that will do so after i post this. I have an excited 15 year old who asks me frequently throughout the day if i have checked kickstarter and how it is looking. Thanks to all of you, i am able to report good things and it puts a huge smile on Kuha’o's face. Thanks again, we are going to make this happen!

    • http://chrisbrogan.com/ Chris Brogan

      Hi Andy–

      I’m super happy to hear that it’s making a difference and I’m so glad you swung by to say hi. It means a lot. Tell Kuha’o we’re getting that number up there slowly. : )

      We did it, Andy. YOU got it done! Yayyyy!!!!!

    Chris,

    Beautiful and poignant.

    Thank you for taking the time to share this with us all today. When you break it all down, a little bit from each of us will go a long way in making this young man’s dreams come true.

    cheers,

    Pete

  • cc

    I have an thrilled 15 season old who demands me regularly throughout
    the day if i have examined kickstarter and how it is looking. Thanks to
    all of you, i am able to review excellent stuff and it places a large
    grin on Kuha’o's experience. Thanks again, we are going to create this
    happen!

    You really know how to make a guy cry…what a great clip and awesome idea. It reminded me of my lost childhood dream of playing piano. He’s clearly a gift, and I’m in.
