Highest-funded journalism project in Kickstarter history

Wow! It’s been quite a month. Before this Kickstarter campaign began, I was feeling pretty confident that we’d make the goal and the show would have a successful season 3. I had no idea the level of support and excitement that each of you would bring to this effort and turn it into the most funded journalism Kickstarter ever. Thank you so much for being a part of it.

Sam is on his way out here; currently somewhere in Arizona, I think. We’ll be shipping out a lot of t-shirts, posters, and little notebooks, while gearing up for season 3. I just received a project timeline for a website redesign. All of it is happening right now and only possible because of your donation.

We’ll be in touch soon about your rewards. We’ll be collecting t-shirt sizes, addresses and any other details we need to fulfill your order. Packages will be sent out in mid-September.

Thanks again for helping me make history!

      I discovered 99% Invisible by accident. What a great find! I have supported local public radio stations for years but never contributed to a particular production before now. Thanks for the great work. I'm looking forward to the new season.

      Congratulations! If season 3 is as good as the previous ones, you'll have deserved every penny. But I'm excited to see how you (and Sam) will branch out. :)

      Although 5,000 short via kickstart the extra 10,000 puts you at 180,477 does that mean a iPhone app coming in the next year as well?

      (If not that's cool too, been a fan of yours for a long long time as you well know :-)

      Congrats! Can't wait to hear what you guys have in store for season 3!

      So are you getting an app done up all fancy like or did we fall short?

    6. Creator Caitlin Miller on August 14, 2012

      Yay! Way to go! I love the show and can't wait to hear more!
