VIDEO — Let's Make History!

Posted by Daniel Young (Creator)
Aloha You Amazing Backers!

I put together a short video for you folks. Please check it out! (It's at the bottom of this message.)

Can you believe it? We did it! We reached our goal and we even made the news again! I honestly wish I could hug each and everyone of you! Thank you so much for all your support!

But you know what? In all the excitement, we realized something...

If we reach $42,500, we'd be the most funded Kickstarter project to ever come out of Hawaii! The previous record is $42,458 for a film project. So instead of hugs (I'm sweaty from the shop anyway), how about this?

If we reach $42,500 before our deadline, this Friday at 10 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time, then everyone who backed the project with at least $50 will get a limited edition Daniel Young Skateboards T-Shirt that will be only available to Kickstarter backers! These aren't just any T-shirts either. They're high quality, soft and comfy tees. They're the very same style as the ones I'll be selling for $20 after the campaign, but with a custom, Kickstarter-exclusive design. (Check out the sample photo attached to this message.) 

So that means that if you've already pledged at least $50, you'll automatically get a T-Shirt if we hit $42,500. If you haven't pledged at least $50, there's still time to get an iPhone veneer or Moleskine journal by hitting the "Manage Your Pledge" button on the Kickstarter page. You'll not only be getting another great product, you'll also get an awesome T-Shirt if we hit $42,500!

If you don't feel like it, no worries. Your support, no matter what the amount, is what helped me reach my goal. For that, I am endlessly thankful. I just figured, hey, we've made it this far, why not shoot for the top spot? It's only $4,548 away!

As always, thanks for spreading the word and being so supportive. Your words of encouragement mean the world to me!

Did I mention how awesome you folks are?
