On May 11, 2011, the world marked the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s passing. The same day, I celebrated 30 years in the Reggae business… and announced the birth of a wonderful new project – the Reggae Report Archive on Kickstarter.com!
Kickstarter, a nice, easy-to-use online fundraising tool, is an “all or nothing” proposition. If the project’s goal is met by June 23, the end of the campaign, then Reggae Report will receive the funds pledged to build this one-of-a-kind Reggae Report Archive. If the goal is not met, then ‘nada’, no funds, no Archive. Seh wah?! Yes…so here are a few tips to help you understand how Kickstarter works:
Pledge what you can, from $1 on up.
Your credit card will not be charged until June 24. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged.
Your pledge amount is not displayed.
Click the Back This Project button. Input your pledge amount and select one of the rare and unique rewards — or not — it’s up to you.
You must go through and finish the Amazon checkout process.
Amazon Payments accepts credit card payments from users worldwide. In many cases you can use your existing Amazon account.
In order to be successful, I need your help. I’m asking friends, fans, and family to support this worthwhile project.
Visit the Reggae Report Archive Kickstarter Project, watch the video, and see why this Archive is a valuable and worthwhile cause.

There is an international interest to discover and learn about reggae’s roots.
We need to support what we believe in, what we are passionate about.
