But like true ballplayers, we are going to keep slugging away.
You have probably already been notified by kickstarter that we came up short this time around. Fear not, loyal and steadfast Backers, Throw Like A Girl will be completed! We just need a little time to go back over the budget and see how we can do more with less, and then we will re-launch this project on kickstarter. It is our sincere hope that you will stand by us and will reaffirm your pledge soon.
Because we did not reach our goal, you will not be charged for your initial pledges, in fact I believe that any and all holds on your funds have already been released.
I am so appreciative and humbled by your support. So many of you did far more than offer a pledge, I know you re-posted the notice to your and your organization’s Facebook pages, you've blogged about the film, linked from your own websites to our kickstarter page, emailed and called your friends and family asking them to pledge, wrote up a notices and placed it in your newsletters, notified your women's and girl's baseball databases, increased your own pledges in an effort to stimulate others and to do all you could do to help, and offered me your suggestions on additional fundraising ideas.
I think, 86 Backers pledging nearly $9000 is very impressive and I thank you all so much! We had pledges coming in until the very last minute, so it is my feeling that we just ran out of time. We had so much momentum coming into the last few days, I think if we had a few more days we would have made it. Kickstarter does offer a 90-day funding cycle, so I’ll be looking into all of our options over the weekend and will be back in touch soon.
Thank you again so much!
