LET US SHOUT IT FROM THE MOUNTAINTOPS!!!
Hello backers - you kings and queens of generosity, kind souls who set me off on this fantastic journey,
Emily here, writing again from the remote corners of our planet, those watery latitudes and longitudes that have become a sort of home for me. In the spirit of the holidays and all other things kind and cheery, I have a small favor to ask of you!
I mentioned a handful of weeks ago that I have a new Kickstarter project going at the moment - a campaign to raise funds for some much needed repair-making while I'm in New Guinea. The short of it is that the ocean is a wild place, and thousands upon thousands of miles can and have really taken their toll on things; at this point i'm halfway through the some 20K+ miles in total the voyage will be, but pushing the boat past this point without addressing some major issues is both unwise and unsafe; In other words, these funds are pretty crucial in helping make the rest of the voyage a success.
We're down to 6 days to go on the current project and I could majorly use yall's help spreading the link around! If you're a baller and/or are swimming in it during these dark days, feel free to embrace your baller status by throwing in a few bucks again this round - I assure you you'll be kindly rewarded for your efforts!
I know this is the very unsexy middle of the project (unlike the oh so glamorous beginning when it's all hopes and dreams, or the excitement of the finish line with all the hugs and high fives) but arguably it's the most important time to support - Please consider lending a hand these next few days, it only takes a few seconds to let your friends know about a project you want to see succeed!
Huge thanks again to all of you for being a part of this craziest of pursuits...I can't believe how far we've come!
Bye for now and happy holidays!
