We just hit a huge milestone: 2500 backers. That's a whole lotta love, and a firehose of ideas and inspiration. You the readers and supporters mean so much more than the project budget. I have the best backers in the world, and I've learned that the secret to crowd-funding is to start with a truly amazing crowd.
Today is the birthday of our Mary's mom, Mary Wollstonecraft, the founder of modern feminism. She's an inspiring testament to the power of articulating your ideas, and how that can shape the world.
Thank you all SO MUCH for helping me bring this project to life, and I'm continually encouraged by letters of support and comments and mad schemes and "wouldn't it be cool if" and the way you've all brought your networks on board.
I'm on the road promoting the world of Wollstonecraft, connecting with 35,000 people at the Calgary Fan Expo, so come by booth D03 and say hello!
There's MUCH Wollstonecraft news to share, some of which is embargoed until pen hits paper but I'll be posting regular updates at the end of the campaign when we can crunch final numbers and send you all an updated project schedule of what to expect by when.
I'm so humbled by your ideas and your support, and again, because I can't say it enough, THANK YOU.
