Have a question?
Anything still happening with this project?
I'm with you, Joseph... The 421 of us that are currently pledging could - at around $235 each - make this happen. Does $235 sound like a lot for a great series to listen to? Yes. BUT does it seem like a lot for four or five INCREDIBLE Christmas or birthday presents? Absolutely not... I'm buying those gifts, anyway . . . why not make it Iliad house?
So - with 70 hours to go - if we ALL pitch in and ask our network to do the same, this is still a possibility. A miraculous possibility? Yes. But isn't that the way He works? :-)
Come on, everyone! I just tripled my pledge, and I know we can get this going if we all just pledge a bit more :D
I upped my pledge 10x of my original pledge. Who'll do the same?
Hopefully Phil's appearance on the Official AIO podcast will help get the word out to more people and boost the backer count in these last 10 days. We are spreading the word on our blog and podcast too. Let's make this happen!

I really want to "hear" this succeed... I'm thinking if all 385 of us doubled our pledges - one for us, one as a great gift? - that might provide the impetus needed to push the project to the next level. And - it can't hurt - if it doesn't fund, we pay nothing. And, sadly, get nothing. I'm thinking what a great Christmas present these CD's would be . . . :-) The team is doing a great job of passing their message along - let's help them out! Pledge if you can - Share if you can't! I'm feelin' the love . . .
For those of you new to Kickstarter, during our own campaign we discovered that personal emails were the most effective recruitment tool we had. People who received personalized emails were 10x more likely to support our project, and they pledged far more than people who heard about us online.
If you're a true believer in the project, please take the time to send out an email to someone you think would enjoy this. If you REALLY want to see this come to life, take a couple of minutes every day and send out an email with the link and a message of why the project is important to you. Then sit back and watch the numbers grow!
I DIDN'T grow up with Adventures in Odyssey! I'd never heard of theses particular adventures. But I DID grow up with Phil, and I'm excited to begin the entire journey now! Go Iliad House Team!!!
I backed because I listened to the Blimey cow episode!
I am so excited for this project! I grew up with Adventures in Odyssey, and hearing the pitch for this really brought back those memories. And then halfway through I was thinking "I know that voice... that's Connie Kendall!" So excited for this new series!
I would suggest adding a $1 pledge with no reward.
I have fond memories of Odyssey. :) I'm greatly looking forward to Iliad House!
February 2014 can't get here fast enough!
Happy Birthday a day late! Adventures in Odyssey has been such an inspiration to me and a very important part of my childhood. I hope Iliad House can have the same impact on children growing up as AIO had on me. :) A big thank you for all you've done!
Happy Birthday Phil! I have enjoyed your work in the Odyssey Times over the years!
Happy Birthday Phil. I want to thank you for all the amazing work you have done on AIO over the years. It is truly a great series. I hope that Iliad house is just as successful for you. God Bless
