Update #5

Atheist Shoes on Facebook; desperately wants to be liked!


Hello all,

As we enter the last week of this Kickstarter project, I'm mindful that Facebook is probably the best way to share news about Atheist Shoes into the future. And, so, I've just launched a Facebook Page... dunno why I didn't do it sooner .)

I would be really grateful if as many of you could "like" it as possible... the dream is that the 2000 people who liked the project page will also like the facebook page, but that may be a little optimistic!

All you backers, do not fret, I will be staying in touch with you by email too... so not just facebook .) And you'll hear from me towards the end of the week / just as the Kickstarter funding period finishes. 

Thanks a million,


PS - Last day in sunny, lovely Portugal today, but looking forward to being back in Berlin tomorrow.
