A Most Eggs-cellent Mile Marker
Project 66 has raised 78% in the first 22 days!
75% was another Mile Marker, which means we have a new bonus prize winner.
Katie Sholler made the pledge that pushed funding beyond the 75% mark. And what has she won? Vegan, all-natural breakfast soaps in the shape of fried eggs (lemon-buttercream scented) and waffles (maple scented), made by Dirty Ass Soaps in New York. Don't they look delicious?
You're probably wondering how in the world breakfast-themed soaps have anything to do with reaching 75%. Let me explain.
The town of Oatman, Arizona is located at roughly the 3/4 mark of Route 66 (traveling from Chicago toward LA). Oatman is famous for a couple of reasons. Wild burros - otherwise known as asses - roam freely in the town. Also, every year on July 4th, Oatman holds a contest to see who can cook the best fried egg on the sidewalk using only solar power. Really. You can read about it here: http://www.2camels.com/egg-frying-contest.php
So you see, fried egg soap by a company named Dirty Ass is a completely logical gift. The waffles are just to sweeten the deal.
Congratulations to Katie and thank you to everyone who has backed so far!
