Dear Misfit Economy supporters,
We successfully met our goal. In fact, we raised an incredible $19,293. This includes some old-fashioned check donations by a few people who struggled to give online. All to say, we are so absolutely THRILLED and overwhelmed by your generosity and support. And also super excited to have you on this journey with us!
For those who opted into some of our great prizes, we'll be in touch directly to get your address information as well as additional details to outfit you in kick-ass Misfit Economy attire. We'll also be posting about some of YOUR own misfit tales on our blog - so please reach out to us with your stories. Every one of us has an inner misfit anecdote buried inside us.
Our journey starts now. The Misfit crew is heading to India towards the end of the month to begin documenting these incredible stories of underground innovation. Thanks for making this possible and please stay updated on our blog to follow some of our adventures.
Lots of love,
Alexa, Kyra, and Laura
Hey friends! So you're probably totally sick of hearing from us. BUT! There are 48 hours left and well...it ain't over 'till it's over.
So we're asking for one final push. Please share and (if you're feeling spendy!) increase your contribution. We're offering brand spanking new rewards for you loyal misfits:
- A specifically tailored black market field day in the city of your choice
- A Misfit hackerspace passport
- Your own "misfit" character in our blog if you're feeling creative
With all our love,
Kyra + Alexa
'ello there misfits! So the finish line is near. 4 days left, and nearly $2,500 to go! We're almost there! We want to thank all of our incredible backers so far...we are forever indebted to you. We're just gonna go ahead and say it: we're in love with you. That felt good.
For all of you who are eagerly awaiting the fruits of our labour, please watch (and share!) the teaser video below created by Laura Gamse.
Also, if you double your contribution, we will make you your own Hackerspace passport which will hold access to a download key of the final film, an invitation to our launch party, and an invite to a leg of our research of your choice. It's your pick between hackers, gangsters, pirates and street artists!
All our love,
