…Grand Opening wants to be a Wedding Chapel?

Grand Opening Wedding Chapel

Grand Opening is currently trying to reinvent their space as a wedding chapel, and is using Kickstarter to raise funds for the cause.

Since big church weddings are ‘out’ this year, Wedding Chapel hopes to be a recession-proof, ultra cool solution for loved ones, friends and family.

“Wedding Chapel” will be New York City’s most fun and affordable wedding spot, offering couples the chance to have long lasting memories without a church or city hall.

The way Kickstarter works is that projects can ask for money, and then people can donate in exchange for certain rewards. In this case, any donor of any amount will have his or her name displayed on the wall of the chapel, and pledges of $100 or more can reserve Wedding Chapel for an hour or more for their own ceremony.

Sound like something that you’d want to take part in? Then hurry on over to Wedding Chapel on Kickstarter and put your pledge in!

…Evan created the Almighty Forest?

Almighty Forrest

In addition to numerous other promotion methods, the Evan Almighty crew has started a campaign called Get On Board, designed to bring awareness to the go green movement. As part of this campaign, they’ve also started the Almighty Forest, where you can plant a virtual and a real tree for just a $5 (tax deductible) donation.

What’s interesting about the Almighty Forest is that with your tree donation, they will also include your name somewhere in the DVD. It might not make you famous, but at least you can tell your friends to start checking for you when the DVD comes out.
