The 20,000 Backer Challenge

Posted by PRX, Inc (Creator)

Hello 99pi backers!

Last year you made the 10,000 backer/$20,000 challenge for 99% Invisible an amazing event. We watched the funding total jump together when we hit the magic "10,000 backer" number. A bunch of us were on Twitter and filling up the Kickstarter comments as we inched closer and closer to the goal. It was one of the coolest moments in my life. 

This year at Radiotopia, we have an even bigger goal and I'm hoping you'll all jump in again so we can make it happen.

***The Hover 20,000 Backer Challenge***

We're so excited to announce that Hover has put up a challenge grant of $25,000 if, and only if, we get over 20,000 backers in the Radiotopia Kickstarter campaign. It doesn't matter how much you give, a minimum pledge of $1 does the job. But pledging that $1 could mean $25,001 for the future of independent public radio, if we end the campaign with over 20,000 total backers. And really, you've already been so generous and made 99% Invisible possible, so a $1 pledge is perfectly great. We just need to know you still back us, and Hover will turn your vote of confidence into the funds we need to do our best work.

Please share this far and wide. This is not going to be easy and we're going to need your help to do it.

Thank you for making 99% Invisible the show it is today.

Become a backer today!


P.S. If you've already pledged to the new campaign, you've already done your part! Thank you!
