Goal Acheived! (And funding is still open for three more weeks!)
Hello! Last Monday I launched this fundraising campaign and only six days later the funding threshold has already been crossed. This is very exciting! I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone that's pledged, I sincerely appreciate your generosity.
Last week I bought my ticket to Kinshasa and printed the first round of bandanas. I'll print the second round today and I hope to have them all complete within two weeks. My intent is to keep these email updates to a minimum, so as not to clog your inboxes, but I will send out a few more later in the month to gather some information from you great and noble donors (such as your mailing address and which color of bandana, if any, you might want). I plan to set up some sort of blog/tumblr etc. to document my trip and will include a link to that in a later update.
I'm still able to receive pledges through Kickstarter for the project until August 15th, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please don't hesitate to forward them the link to the project page.
Again, my deep gratitude to you all!
