all of the C.A.P.E.R. fans who helped contribute to Steve Bonino's Indiegogo
campaign for his new project Children
of the Moon! The total ended up at $1,405, which

- Today marks the
37th anniversary of the day when The Kids from C.A.P.E.R.
first debuted on NBC. In honor of this anniversary,
The C.A.P.E.R. Project is pleased to announce that we're
going to match the amount raised for Steve Bonino's Indiegogo
campaign for his new project Children
of the Moon, dollar for dollar, up to $2,500!
(That means that if the campaign reaches $2,500 or more,
we'll add another $2,500 to the amount, or we'll double any
amount under $2,500!) C.A.P.E.R. fans have already
been super generous with their donations and the matching
funds will include all the money which has been raised to
date. But if you haven't made a donation yet or wish
to donate a little more, know your money will go twice as
far! We feel that this is especially appropriate
today, considering it's also the anniversary of 9/11 and
there is such a strong message of peace and love behind the
music of Children of the Moon. Steve's genuine and
heartfelt songwriting and lyrics are sorely needed in this
world. We believe 100% in this project and want to do
everything we can to help make this album a reality, so
please help any way you can to enable us to reach that
monetary goal! Thanks, everyone!
