  1. @Jonathan – Thanks! Yes. Barring some disaster, I’ll have the 5K saved up and then some. I’m hoping to win the whole thing and so I plan to save as much as possible.

  2. Congrats, that is definitely one of the top videos , at least that I saw. You’re going to grab every last penny of that $5,000 right? 😉

  3. We won! Just found out yesterday! We’re eligible for 5K in matched savings. Awesome! Can’t wait to see what’s next with this contest.

    Thanks to everyone for your views, votes, and comments. I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with you.

  4. Nice! I’m a metalhead myself, but how would you incorporate a real message over a screaming guitar? Then again, for $500, I might dust off the Fender….
