Thanks to the 68 people who have backed our project so far, and those who have supported us by spreading the word, we have crossed the "funded" line!
We have accomplished something very significant, which could only have been done with support from our community - our friends and family, and the new people we have met through this fabulous funding platform of Kickstarter! It has been a lot of hard work, and it's just the beginning, as we now begin to fulfull all of the rewards, and then make preparations for ArtWalk in April!
We'd like to acknowledge that a great deal of faith and trust in our Creator has been at work in this process, and has enabled us to respond to the creative gifts that we have. We believe that it is possible to put our hands to this work of creating, and be satisfied in it, and see it produce good things in both our lives, and in our community.
We're still receiving backers, and this excites us as well! We have two days left, and any additional funds above our goal amount will go toward the following, which were not included in our initial budget:
- Kickstarter Fees (5% of total funds raised, or about $280 right now)
- Credit Card Processing Fees (3-5% of total funds raised, about $225 right now)
- T-shirt production ($400-500)
- Supplies & Materials related to fulfillment of additional backers' rewards
So keep spreading the word, because we love sharing our art with people who appreciate it. We've received such a tremendously positive response so far, and a successful project is worth chatting about!
