Bon Appetit + Fab&Fru Feature Kutsher's Kickstarter Campaign

Dear Backers,

Our Welcome to Kutsher's Kickstarter campaign is in the news!  Bon Appetit raved that the film is "a great documentary" and interviewed us about Catskills cuisine.  (You can read the full Q&A here.)

And Fabulous & Frugal prominently featured us in an article explaining the Kickstarter experience on their online women's finance and lifestyle magazine.  (You can read their piece here.)

All this great press should be great publicity for our campaign, but we still need your help to spread the word further.  With your help, we've raised over 50% of our $10,000 goal so far, but there are only 19 days left and with Kickstarter it's all or nothing (we don't get any of the funds and your credit card is not charged if the full goal isn't reached before the deadline)!

So will you please tell your world about your generous support of our film on email, Facebook and Twitter?  Sample messages for your cut-and-paste convenience are below. 

With continuing appreciation and thanks for your continuing generosity and support,

Caroline & Ian
