Day 4: new rewards, new goals
I am now more than 200% funded, with plenty of time remaining, and all my higher tier rewards are sold out. I've talked with the owner of the local clay studio and budgeted the cost of the studio and materials, and I have raised enough money to hold an 8 week class with 10 girls, and I still have some money left over. I have updated the rewards available, including a new higher tier for a custom work. I have a couple new goals I'd like to do with additional funds raised.
My plan now is to have a large gallery show of the work from this project, as well as the work of the girls. I'd like it to be a HUGE RAUCOUS SHINDIG to celebrate this project and the girls, and have them there as guests of honor. I will pay for promotional materials and any other costs associated with hosting this show. Hopefully, my stories and the girls stories will be shared with A LOT of people.
Beyond that, if there are still funds available, I plan to invest them in better studio equipment, so that I can continue making more and better work in this vein, as well as mentoring girls in my own studio.
Thanks again, everyone. You will hear thank you a lot, so I hope you don't mind! I'm so overwhelmed by all this, I just feel like I can't say it enough. Thank you thank you thank you!
