Now the HuffPo did a story!!
Amazing! I can't believe how much interest we've gotten in this project! The Huffington Post just put up a story on their Parenting website. Check it out!
This is all because of YOU, yes, YOU backers who stepped outside of your comfort zone to donate to this project. We absolutely, positively would not have had the interest in this project without all of YOU coming together and standing with us. Thank you. Thank you.
We are 2 backers away from a staggering 200 people saying they support this idea, which to me is worth more than the $7,822 we've raised — but that's awesome too! There is little more than a week in the campaign and I need everyone to keep up the buzz. If you can take a second to share the HuffPo story with your social networks it could go a long way towards achieving our second goal of $10,000! And don't forget that if we reach that goal, you get a bigger reward, too! Win-win-win, that's what we're after here!
