Over 25% Funded!
Thanks again, Everyone! I've gotten to the point where I'm no longer recognizing my backers, so I think that this has been getting around by word of mouth. Thanks for telling your friends and family! It's making a huge difference, and I wouldn't be nearly 30% funded just 3 days in without your help.
And on that note, I wanted to share a message with you from an old friend of mine. I thanked them for their generous pledge, and this was their response:
"(...) I really, on a personal level, want to see this work out for you. I know it's been a dream of yours for some time and I honestly believe with your tenacity you will achieve your goals and then some. It's expensive, and stressful, to get a functioning business up and running but little steps and the ability to adapt and overcome is what it takes. I honestly want to see you make it."
I'm thankful to have so many supportive people in my life.
