Dear Kickstarter Friends,
It has been more than six months since I last wrote to you. During that time, I've thought a lot about this day - the day when I would get to tell you that we're finally relaunching the Placebo Chocolate Project as Inspire Chocolate (www.inspirechocolate.com)!
It's been a long journey to get to this day. In the last six months, Nathalie and I have moved from Argentina to Peru to California to Seattle, Washington, where we now reside. We also moved our chocolate making equipment from my mother's kitchen and dining room to our new mini-chocolate factory. But now we're here, settled, and the smell of inspiring chocolate has filled the air for almost a month - as Nathalie has dutifully prepared for this big day.
As our Kickstarter supporters, you are of course the FIRST people to know about the launch of Inspire Chocolate. We hope that you'll go check it out and tell us what you think! In addition to the chocolate bars that were such a big hit with you guys (thousands were sent to you), we are also offering new chocolate rocks, fortune cookies, santas, and dreidals.
If you are interested in being one of the first people to order something from our new Inspire Chocolate website and purchasing something for Christmas or New Years, PLEASE PUT IN YOUR ORDER BEFORE MIDNIGHT PST TONIGHT 12/18! - and use our special coupon code for you: KICKSTARTERFAMILY to get 10% off! Nathalie and I are flying home for the holidays tomorrow, and we will need to get your orders our by tomorrow morning. (We wanted to give you much more leeway, but unfortunately my own website making ineptitude delayed our launch by a two weeks!)
Nathalie and I both want to thank all of you for your support in getting the Placebo Chocolate Project (now Inspire Chocolate!) started last April! Without your help, it never would have gotten off the ground. While it's taken longer than we'd have liked to create a stable foundation for things to grow, we're finally here... and we're so excited to share with you in this moment, and to share our inspiring chocolate with chocolate lovers who are ready for a little more inspiration in their lives.
So one last time: If you are thinking about beautiful, organic, fair-trade chocolate gifts for Christmas or New Years, check out: InspireChocolate.com tonight! We will be able to get your order out by 10am tomorrow via Priority Mail and you should have it easily in time for gift opening!
Happy, happy holidays!!!
Daniel & Nathalie
