Kittie crowdfunding DVD documentary, tell-all book

To celebrate their approaching 20th anniversary, all-female Canadian metal band Kittie has launched a crowdfunding effort for a documentary DVD and a "tell-all" book. You can contribute to the Indiegogo campaign here. Here are some of the details from the campaign page:
So here is what's happening, and what your contribution will be going towards. First, we will be compiling our personal footage, concerts and events over the past 20 years, to bring you the be all and end all of career-spanning Kittie documentaries. We are opening up our archives to you; to give you an inside look at what it has been like to be in this band, through our eyes, for the last 20 years. From day one to the present: Recordings, shows, backstage…it's all there. We will be entrusting My Good Eye Productions, a friend and the director of our last 4 videos, with the footage, to help us edit and direct. His fee, as well as travel, equipment, and crew costs over the next year will be upwards of $15,000. We are also excited to announce that we will be working with Mark Eglinton, who has had recent success with Rex Brown of Pantera's book, to pen our band biography. This is the story you have never heard, and will not believe! To get Mark started on the process of writing and pitching to publishing houses, he will need $4,000. The rest of the money will be used to print, design and manufacture all of the awesome perks you see at the side there. We are once again opening up the Kittie archives and raising the dead with old shirt designs, long lost and out of print recordings, and rare and new items to give you a piece of where we came from, and a glimpse at where we are headed.
UPDATE: Well, Kittie clearly still has fans, because less than 24 hours after launching the crowdfunding effort, the band has already raised $28,000. Moreover, their $20,000 goal was surpassed in roughly eight hours.
