By the numbers and a few administrative notes...
As you all know the campaign closed a few hours ago, so we want to first express our sincere gratitude to everyone that supported the project -- you folks are all BRILLIANT!
Here's a quick look at the numbers along the road to the finish...
- 18 months of development.
- 30 days on the campaign trail.
- 1539 project backers.
- 75,418 dollars raised.
- Infinite thanks!
On a less exciting, but important front, we want to address, in general way, some of the issues that folks are having now that pledging has ceased -- these mainly have to do with concerns regarding incorrect payment amounts, delivery addresses, and the need to still add additional funds for international shipping.
To that end, rather than respond to each of your comments and remarks on a personal level, we will make focused updates in the coming week that address each of these issues individually since most of the issues we are seeing at the moment are similar in nature.
After a long month on the campaign trail, we plan to take the weekend off, but please continue to send any questions, comments, concerns our way and expect to receive updates next week as well as the backer surveys which will offer you, among other things, the chance to confirm or edit your shipping address.
Thanks again for all of the support, input, and understanding along the way. It has honestly been a pleasure interacting with everyone for the past month and we look forward to continuing to share our progress in the weeks and months to come!
Have a great weekend and if you're out on the town tonight, tip one back for us :-)
