We want to thank all of you for your generous support for our ScratchJr Kickstarter campaign.

We finished the campaign this week with pledges of $77,474, far beyond our initial goal of $25,000 -- and also beyond our first stretch goal of $60,000. Your donations will enable us to launch an iPad version of ScratchJr this summer, and an Android version later this year.

Although we didn't quite reach our second stretch goal of $80,000, we received an extra donation to the ScratchJr project after the Kickstarter campaign ended, so we'll be able to move forward with plans to produce resources and curricular materials for teachers and parents.

We're starting to work on fulfilling the Kickstarter rewards, so you'll be hearing more from us soon.

We can't wait to get ScratchJr out to the world -- and to hear about your experiences with it. Thanks again for your interest and support.
