Dear Supporters of Good Food,
With our Kickstarter campaign ending this past Friday at 10pm EDT, we will sadly be falling well shy of our fundraising goal. Because Kickstarter uses an 'all-or-nothing' model, we will therefore receive NONE of the generous pledges which were made by the over 220 people. But we do have some great news to share!
Shortly after our Kickstarter campaign launched, Toronto-based Stornoway Communications came on board to help get this project off the ground. We’ve already completed some filming in New York and are planning a more extensive trip for late Summer. Despite Stornoway being able to support us in our early stages, we are still in TREMENDOUS need of your support to help meet our budgetary needs for the duration of this project and ensure that the quality of this production is at a level which this subject matter deserves. Our hope is that 100% of the over 220 people who made pledges will choose to support us by instead making a direct donation via PAYPAL or cheque. You’ll notice below that most of the rewards remain unchanged.
Please accept my warm thank you in advance for taking the time to visit www.deconstructingdinner.com and selecting the Donate option on the screen.
In good food and health,
