BestFriends ‘Best Friends!’ Donate ANY AMOUNT to watch the first 3 episodes now!

Location: Los Angeles, California

“We made the first 3 episodes of Best Friends! to serve as both our ‘proof of concept’ and as valuable perks to donating to our campaign. With Indiegogo we had a platform to raise funds but also introduce the public to the show. With an average donation of $100 a person we managed to hit our goal.” -The Best Friends! Team
