24 Hours Until the End of the World (or maybe just this campaign)
A day left in the campaign, and you've unlocked a total of four stretch goals (at $1500, $3000, $3250, and $3500)
Right now I'll just say that I'm very pleased. I'll save the triumphant maniacal laughter and embarrassing victory dance for later.
I'm going to reprint the Add-Ons and Stretch Goals here.
Not because I want to give you the hard sell. But because, this being the last day, it's a good time for a reminder. And because those new to Kickstarter (and there are a lot of first-time backers here) might not be that familiar with Stretch Goals and Add-Ons.
If you want to pledge a little extra to try to get stretch goals, then stretch away.
If you want to add on stuff to your pledge because you think the add-ons are cool, just hit the manage pledge button near the top of the right hand column, and then add the appropriate amount to your pledge (click on the dollar amount, and then add in a new dollar amount that includes the extra money you'd like to spend on add-ons).
First, the stretch goals. If you're more curious about add-ons, scroll down.
