$5,190! We've made our goal and more . . .
Thank you so much for your support!
We have already surpassed our $5,000 goal ($5,190 and counting) and still have 24 hours left before Kickstarter officially ends our 30-day campaign.
Quite a few people have made contributions despite the attainment of our goal, because they'd simply been meaning to and they realize that time is almost up. Although we didn't anticipate this, we sure appreciate the extra generosity.
Any pledges that we receive in addition to the five-thousand dollar goal will pay for unforeseen expenses (as there always are with such ventures) and will help to offset the costs of running the fundraising campaign (Kickstarter and Amazon both take a small percentage).
Once again, we would like to voice our heartfelt appreciation for believing in us and our work. And I, for one, am looking forward to making some prank phone calls.
