I feel bad because I have the money to donate at least $50, but I'm having problems with my bank account that I'm not sure I can get fixed in time. I should have gotten that fixed sooner. I did post the link on Facebook with threats of damnation, though. It's too bad that they've already put so much effort into the animatronics.
Also, in defense of those people who are saying they're broke, at this point, donating a dollar isn't really going to help much unless 11,000 people do it, which isn't realistic at all. We need hundreds of people to donate at least $40 each in order to make the mark, so "You can at least manage a dollar" is pretty much a moot point.
I think they probably should have made a promotion flash to upload to NG. It would draw the attention of more people and give them something to show for themselves. They spent too much time explaining their special effects and not enough time describing their plot, the thing that people are going to be the most interested in.
