25% of the way there!
Way to go, backers! Thanks to your generous support, eight days into the drive we are 25% of the way there. This is just about exactly on target, so as long as this keeps up, we'll make it! That said, please continue to push this project: mention it to your friends, post it on Twitter and Facebook, drive traffic toward it any way you can. Remember for those of you out of the area, one of my goals once I have my own kitchen is to open up shop online- so anyone, anywhere, can buy a delicious Bell and Whistle treat!
The next goal is simple: by Wednesday, March 16th, I want this project to be 50% funded. Halfway there. That means $3,250 should be raised by then- an additional $1,620 from where we are right now. We can do this! I just need your help to continue to spread the word.
On the next update I hope to have some pretty pictures for you- a floorplan of the kitchen, some recipes in the testing stages, and maybe even a preview of the "Gluten Free is Good For Me" poster. Stay tuned! And keep linking.
