I'm very happy to say that yesterday the project goal was reached, as well as surprised and thankful for the amount of support pledged so quickly! Kickstarter projects stay active until the initial deadline and I am unable to end it earlier, meaning the project will continue for 19 more days. Those wishing to pledge for rewards can continue to do so, but since the minimum amount needed for me to travel to Munich has been met, I WILL BE GOING TO MUNICH!
I will begin producing some of the rewards, but I will only have the final count on what I will need until the project is officially complete. This means the majority of rewards will have to wait until that time.
Thank you again to everyone who has pledged so far!
