Doyle (also known for a recurring role on "Gossip Girl") has campaigned for fundraising with a video appeal to his fans that has been available on kickstarter.com for the past three weeks. Doyle met his initial goal of $8,500 12 hours after posting the video, with additional support from Facebook and Twitter fans allowing Doyle to expand his fundraising goals and his plans for the project.
Fundraising is currently scheduled to end Nov. 12. So far, the campaign and pledge totals have cleared $15,000, with Doyle's new goal set at $20,000 by the time the campaign concludes. The additional funds will allow for more song recordings and added production value.
