New Goals, New Perks!

We have passed our STRETCH GOAL! We have raised over $600K and we have you to thank! Your continued support and dedication has made this dream possible.

I say we shoot for the moon and make $700K this week! Let’s show the world we believe in this film!

These are the new perks that were added today:

$15 Workout Waterbottle
Get your very own limited edition water bottle used by the Bounce Back cast and crew while staying in shape during production. Own your very own for a $15 contribution. Email updates included.

$200       Bounce Back Memory Book
This has been a crazy and beautiful adventure! In an effort to preserve the love and memory of all the hard work from all of the fans world-wide, we are offering you a Bounce Back Memory Book! Similar to a yearbook, it will list all of the donors, have exclusive photos, behind the scenes pictures and much more. We will photograph this journey from beginning to end and chronicle memories that will last a lifetime.  For an ADDITIONAL $50, the cast will sign your yearbook! Add it to your payment under this perk and we will make sure your first signatures are theirs! These will also be ready in time for the premiere so you can collect dedications and signatures from all your new friends on this project (and other celebrities).  It will be a keepsake you'll cherish forever!
 Please add $10 for shipping in US and $20 for shipping internationally. 

Because limits the amount of perks we can put online, the pool party will be handled differently. You can contribute $250 with no perk chosen on Indiegogo. Then leave a comment explaining that your payment is for the pool party. We will put your name on the list and send you confirmation after the campaign.

$250 Private Party with Shemar
How about a pool party in the beautiful Southern California sun? Join us for a celebration of this amazing adventure with a pool party hosted by Shemar and his team. Times will coincide with another backer event for limited travel. (No travel is provided)

Let's get out there and spread the word and bring this project home!

If this was your perk, it has been approved. If you are interested in one of the perks listed, please let me know in the comments. If you still want the perk, pay the amount on INDIEGOGO and comment here so we can keep record of it. Congratulations!

Pledge amount $1000

Pledge amount $150

Pledge amount $250 - LIMITED TO 100. If it is less than 100 people, a different activity will be chosen but you will still get alone time with Shemar for an activity.

Pledge amount $250 - LIMITED TO 10. This call will be 5-10 minutes long (but he's usually very talkative).

Pledge amount $250 - LIMITED TO 10. Video call will be 5-10 minutes. Video message will be (within reason) any message you want him to record in 1-2 minutes.

Pledge amount $300 - Limited to 10.

Name Your Perk Party This Friday!

"NAME YOUR PERK" PARTY with SHEMAR for The Bounce Back Film Indiegogo Campaign!
Video chat online

Friday, July 26, 2013
4:00pm PST
7:00pm EST

23:00 GMT

Submit a perk idea and a pledge via email at

For example, "I will pledge $2000 for a professional photo shoot with Shemar". We will collect all the pledges and sort through the ones that are possible. If Shemar accepts or we can confirm your perk, you will be told LIVE on the air during the Video-a-thon (and notified via email). To secure your perk, you must pay your contribution online on Indiegogo DURING the Video-a-thon. Once receipt of your pledge is confirmed, you will receive an email confirmation that you have secured your perk!

Certain rules do apply. We ask that you keep it clean and respectful. You must provide your own travel to any event. Your perk should focus on The Bounce Back, it's cast or production since ultimately they are the only things we can commit to with any authority. Any requests for Criminal Minds perks, celebrity friend perks or anything of the like, will only be considered when feasible. 

Examples of perk:

I pledge $400 for a pool party with Shemar.
I pledge $100 for an autograph picture of ____(friend of Shemar)___.
I pledge $1000 for an afternoon on the set of Criminal Minds.
I pledge $100 for an autographed script from The Bounce Back cast.

(The above are just examples to give you an idea of how to request a perk. You can come up with any crazy idea of you own!)

The online address will be announced tomorrow, along with details on how we are going to run the video shout outs. More coming soon!

Next Phase: Pre-Production

With the campaign drawing close to the end, my team and I are starting the next phase: PRE-PRODUCTION.

After all, you have all been so instrumental in showing your support and enthusiasm and for this, who better to ask to help with creative decisions? We strongly value your opinion as we move forward!
The most important decisions that arise in the beginning stages of planning a film production is CASTING. We already have some of our lead characters, but would like to ask you who your favorite actors are for some of the co-star roles? Who you would like to see star in the BOUNCE BACK film? Who do you see alongside Shemar as his buddy? Who are your favorite female actors?

Do you know any talented actors who are looking for their big break? If so, let them know we will be casting within the upcoming months!

We are all very excited and we feel the excitement is building as we move into the beginning stages of pre-production!

WE DID IT! $300K for Bounce Back & 300K Followers for Shemar!

Thanks to all you guys and girls and Baby Girls and new fans and everyone who has contributed. We made it to 300K!
This is a big milestone in this Bounce Back journey you all have embarked upon with me!
My team and I are so thankful for all of your enthusiasm and support. I can't even express how much I appreciate each and every comment and contribution and referral. TEAMwork makes the DREAMwork!
As soon as we get to 400K I am going to start planning the 500K THANK YOU party!!
Thank you!

It has been the week of 300,000! First on Saturday, Shemar reached 300,000 followers on Twitter! Then today, we hit our Sunday goal of $300,000 for the Bounce Back Indiegogo campaign. You are all amazing in your devotion and support to our project and to Shemar Moore. We will never be able to thank you enough.

We have 13 more days and $196,000 to raise. I know we can do it. This has become a quest for all of us that are his fans. I include myself among you! But I'm not just a fan of Shemar Moore, I've become a converted fan of HIS FANS - the BabyGirl Nation! I found myself walking around the house the other day in my BabyGirl cap (which I do NOT wear well) but it somehow made me feel like part of your group - and for that honorary membership, I am honored!

Make our goal or not (I know we WILL), I hope somewhere it will be written forever that never has a group of fans tried so hard, for so long, so devotedly, for so little reward to help a dream come true. Know that we appreciate you and that Shemar loves you all. He truly does!

Let's get back to work!

Isn't this the perfect Saturday photo? Two things we love - dogs and Shemar Moore! Have a great great Saturday, ya'll! From the Bounce Back Team!

Are you The ULTIMATE FAN? Here's Your Chance to Prove It!

Have you told all your friends about the Bounce Back Campaign? Well, it's time to call them again!

We are announcing a referral campaign that you all will love! Are you Shemar's ULTIMATE FAN? Now's your chance to prove it!

Here are the details:

Point System Referrals

For every contribution of $20 or more that you raise from a family member, a friend or stranger on the street you get 1 point on our "ULTIMATE FAN” Chart.
Points will be tallied for the next 15 days. The TOP THREE FANS with the highest amount of points will be selected.

Third Place -       “Hard Working” Baby Girl or Homie         
Award: Your Choice of Perk Under $1000 and a “Thank you” tweet or a Facebook post from Shemar.

Second Place -   “Forever Moore” Baby Girl or Homie     
Award:  Your Choice of two perks $1000 or less AND a “thank you” tweet or Facebook post from Shemar.


Award: You will win ALL OF THE PERKS up to $1000, a phone call “thank you” from Shemar PLUS a VIP Perk available to NO ONE but you. The VIP perk will be a personal photo opportunity with Shemar at the premiere with a professional photographer. But we won’t stop there! The photo will be printed in 8X10 and mailed to you with a personalized AUTOGRAPH! After all, you are his ULTIMATE fan!

We will keep a running tally on the sidebar of the blog with your name and the number of points. You can check in daily to see who's in the lead. Winner will be chosen Saturday, July 27 in the evening. 

If you win first place and can not attend the LA events, we will work with you on an alternative prize that will be equally as fabulous! We promise!

Send your friends and when they contribute tell them to put "REFERRED BY: (your name)". Then I need you to be proactive and tweet, comment, email me and tell me you sent someone and that they CONFIRMED that they contributed. I will verify and give you your point! It's that easy.

So get to it! You have 15 days! May the best BABY GIRL or HOMIE win!

Your $1 Counts!

Has everyone read the most recent update?

Remaining perks will be handed out at the end of the campaign to all who contributed an amount that didn't earn them a reward. Just our way to say thank you. Through this whole process, Shemar has been amazed that some of you would contribute to the campaign without asking for anything in return. Your loyalty is amazing and we are thankful to have you as part of this film!

We have 15 more days! We can do it!

Shemar Moore at Blogger Junket Talking About "The Bounce Back"

Actor Shemar Moore and Director Youssef Delara joined a group of bloggers on Sunday to discuss their new project, "The Bounce Back". Launching an aggressive social media campaign with the assistance of 49 national bloggers was part of the film's campaign to raise $500,000 through Indiegogo crowd-funding site. Listen to what they both had to say about the promise of this film and this campaign.

Entertainment Tonight Interview with Shemar Moore

For those of you that missed yesterday's episode of Entertainment Tonight, it is now available online.

New Twitter perks are only available until tomorrow night at 11:59 pm, so don't miss out!

Have a wonderful Thursday, Everyone!

Time to Get Serious: Shemar Needs Your Help.

Ok, fans, it’s time to get serious. This whole experience on Indiegogo has been amazing for me. The love and the support has really wowed me, but now we are entering the home stretch. We’ve been having a lot of fun because you know that’s what I’m about, but its time to get to work.
We are only half way to our goal and have 19 days left. It’s crunch time. My staff and I are discussing how we are going to change up the perks and really motivate you, your family, your friends and all fans to help us out. Since we are limited on how many perks we can offer on Indiegogo, some of the perks you see listed will be removed (so if you want one buy it before it’s gone). They will be replaced with new perks that we think you might like. These perks will be more affordable but that means we need to sell more of them to make our goal. We need your help. You’ve been great at bouncin’ and spreading the love and now we need you to do it again.
It’s time to make the ‘dream work’! I can’t do it without you.

THANK YOU from Shemar Moore

As promised, here is a THANK YOU personally from Shemar for all of your support during the Indiegogo campaign.

We have 19 days left! Teamwork makes the dream work!

Twitter Party, Shemar and New Challenges!

Good Morning!
Since Thee Sharp’s great idea to start a $4.00 for the 4th pledge challenge, 59 people backed The Bounce Back Movie project! Thanks again Thee!! We are almost HALF WAY to our goal!!!
My team and I are talking about new perks and fun challenges as we move forward into the weekend so whether your back at your desk today or still enjoying your holiday, keep spreading the word about the film.
Trust me when I say your efforts in helping us spread the word definitely don’t go unnoticed. We appreciate every pledge, every time you click to “share,” every facebook comment, tweet and every acknowledgment here on! I know that, together, with all you, we can get there!
Don’t forget this Sunday I’ll be hosting our “ANYTHING GOES” Twitter Party!

There you have it, everyone!  Thee really raised the bar and came up with a great idea for the 4th of July challenge. Following her example, we (Shemar's team) issued a challenge of our own.

This Sunday at 4:00pm PST / 7:00pm EST, Shemar will be joining us LIVE on Twitter for a one hour chat! So many of you have been requesting that he film a video message that it gave me an idea! If by Sunday, you can help us raise HALF of our goal ($250K) then I will personally record you a video thank you from Shemar this Sunday. If by Sunday, you can help us get to $300K, I will schedule a LIVE video chat with Shemar in the VERY NEAR future!

Can we do it? I know we can if we continue to spread the word and give what we can. The $4 promotion was a wonderful way for us to show extra love yesterday. How about $5 today? Any little bit helps us get closer to making this movie (and making history). Let's do it together!

Hopefully everyone is out celebrating FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE with Hot Dogs and Fireworks!
One of the Bounce Back’s LOYAL backers, Thee Sharp, had a great idea.

Thee Sharp said 12 minutes ago
Just gave my $4….who’s next?

Thee Sharp said 18 minutes ago
Hi All Funders, How about we all pledge an additional $4 since its the 4th. Then come back & shout it out. Whatcha think?

Thanks Thee! I love all of your suggestions! You all are what keeps the campaign going!

Teamwork makes the Dreamworks!


Happy Independence Day, America!

Hello everyone! Just a quick note to announce that we finally have our permanent web address. You can now just type in : to visit this blog. Nice and simple!

The time for the twitter party will be announced on Friday. Stay tuned for that.

Also, I have a message from Shemar to deliver below, but before I do, let me also wish all of our following in the USA a happy 4th of July! I hope you are all surrounded by your family, friends and lots of food!

I wanted to take a moment to wish all my American fans a happy Independence Day. A shout out to all of our military servicemen and women and their families for their sacrifices for our freedom.

Update from Shemar

Hey everyone!
I’m overwhelmed with the response to last night’s Twitter party. 6,261,078 impressions world wide and 12,303 Tweets in one hour! We were a top trending topic in the US and WorldWide on Twitter. I could never have imagined a show of affection that large and intense. I’m still going through the tweets from last night and feel humbled (and a little excited by all of your enthusiasm!) I am thrilled to be joining you on Sunday evening for some more fun and flirting.
Our number on Indiegogo continues to climb thanks to all of you, but we still have a lot of work to do. I’m out right now working hard to find support for our film and continue to need you to do what you’ve been doing. Spread the word, claim some perks for yourself and a friend, tell us what more you think we can offer (within reason). I value your opinion as my loyal fans and I know this film has become a true labor of love for you as well.
Thank you for your support and for loving your baby boy! I can’t thank you enough (although I will continue to try).

12,303 Tweets in One Hour! You all are amazing!

Thank you to everyone that attended last night's Twitter party. Our numbers were incredible and your show of love for Shemar will be talked about around here for a while! I can't even begin to imagine what kind of crowd we will have on Sunday (time to be announced soon) when Shemar is on LIVE with us!

If you had fun and you would like to see more online chats, videos, postings and outreach through social media, you need to make your voice heard AND LOUD. Leave comments, tweets, post on Facebook on the Bounce Back pages and Shemar's pages that you want to have more of this! More access to him and more fan opportunities. You see, the social media world is new to Shemar and his team. I don't want them to take my word for it about the impact this is having on his fans. I want them to hear it from you, so from now until Sunday, let's shout everywhere where Shemar and his managers can hear us. I have access to him and I know he trusts my opinion, but it is YOUR voice that means something to him so you have marching orders!

Remember, also, our campaign is still earning money but we are not at our goal yet. We need your help. Give what you can and tell your friends. I'm excited for that post-campaign party we get if we reach our goal. I can't wait to meet all of you that can make it!

We are slowly getting closer to our goal! Don't forget to continue to spread the word.

Twitter Party Tomorrow July 2 6pm PST/9pm EST

Tomorrow we host of first ever Shemar Moore / The Bounce Back Twitter party. Being part of a 'twitter party' might be a new thing for some of you, so I thought I would give you an explanation on what to expect.

1) First of all, at every twitter party there is a hashtag. A hashtag is a description of why we are together and is picked by the party host (me). Every time you tweet as part of our party, your tweet has to have the chosen hashtag. Please only include our hashtag and no additional hashtags as it sends up a warning flare to Twitter and we want to play by the rules. The hashtag for this Twitter party is:   #ShemarMoore
An example tweet for the party would be: "Having fun meeting all the #ShemarMoore fans at this twitter party!" - You can say anything to the crowd at the party but they can only 'see' your tweets if you remember to use the #ShemarMoore hashtag so don't forget. We don't want to lose you in the crowd.

2) On the top of your screen on Twitter, there is a "Search" box. To join our party type #ShemarMoore in that search box. It will show you everyone that is already at the Twitter party and list all of their tweets. Now, a Twitter party as large as we expect this one to be will be like being in a very crowded night club. You will have to keep up, dance through the crowd, be loud and always use the hashtag #ShemarMoore (and no other). Refresh the screen often and read what everyone else has to say. Get to know each other. Tell people about you and your love for #ShemarMoore!

3) Every party has a host. That would be me (Erica) on the @BounceBackFilm twitter account. When you see our tweets, pay close attention because I will be running the party games! Games are important because there will be prizes. We can't all play Twister at this party because we are in the cyber world, but there will be trivia questions about #ShemarMoore, there will be random drawings and fun games like that. Be alert, pay attention and make sure you are refreshing your screen often.

4) Did someone say prizes?! Yes, I did! We will be giving away autograph pictures, t-shirts, baby girl gear....Folks, I have the keys to the giveaway closet and I'm gonna be in a giving mood (AND I have access to Shemar) so there WILL BE surprise giveaways. Don't miss it!

5) The party will be 60 minutes long. That's the formal affair. Those that want to stay around and keep the party going are welcome to do so. Just keep using the #ShemarMoore hashtag and the 'room' is yours.

6) Here's the grand prize. The part you were waiting for. If we trend worldwide (meaning if Twitter says on their side bar that #ShemarMoore is one of their top ten topics in the world during our party), then we will celebrate with a grand prize. FIVE lucky winners will receive a photograph of Shemar reading your tweets online at my computer during our party with him this weekend. I will make sure your screen name and twitter page come out in the photo and I will personally send it to each winner. In other words, if you twitter name is @BabyGirlNumber1, I will take a picture of Shemar pointing to your twitter page online so you can show the world that Shemar saw your love messages to him! You can hang it on your wall and tell the world you are his Online Baby Girl! The winners will be chosen at random IF AND AFTER we get Twitter to notice us and our love for #ShemarMoore. The trick is to tweet using the #ShemarMoore hashtag (and no other) as much and as often as you can during our party.

Anyone have any questions? If so, leave me a comment and I'll make sure and answer all your questions before tomorrow night's fun.

Tomorrow night will be a blast! Hope to see you there.

More Perks!

Hope you had a great weekend. It was a busy one for me, but I’m back and ready to get the numbers moving again!

GREAT NEWS! Because we’ve received an overwhelming number of emails requesting more Criminal Minds set visits, personal meetings and a personalized photo shoot, I’m offering these three new perks:

A Night to Remember – ($2500) Want to go clubbing in Hollywood with me and some of your friends? You and FOUR of your friends can meet me for a night on the town. The five of you will join me for some flirty, fun dancing at a popular LA night club and hang out for the evening VIP style. (Travel not provided)

Personal Photo Shoot – ($1,500) Join me on the set of an upcoming photo shoot and be photographed with me by a professional photographer. You will have a memento to show off and keep forever. I will send you an 8X10 print autographed and dedicated to you (as well as the digital file to keep). (Travel not provided)

Criminal Minds Set Visit – ($500) Back by popular demand, you and a guest can visit the set on Criminal Minds for an hour to watch filming behind the scenes. (Travel not provided) (50 available) (Travel not provided)

I would love to hear feedback on the perks.

Thanks again for supporting “The Bounce Back” movie!
