It's Over! And it was a Complete Success!!!!
I don't know any official Kickstarter stats, but I would have to believe Programming Hope's campaign would be included in the upper percentile! The $35,000 goal was met in 4 days, 212 backers gave to the project, and another $16,000 was raised on top of that!
How Did it Happen?!!
How were we so successful? Because of you the backer, and everyone else who shared and forwarded the video trailer for others to learn about nonPareil's inspirational journey. Because so many believed in the idea that this film could send a hopeful positive message out about autism, we made it happen!
Now we get to go back to working on the documentary, only now we know we have the resources for great music, a lot of finishing touches, marketing, and of course a great premiere in Dallas. We're shooting for April 2014, so that means I have a lot of work to do, but because of the generosity of so many I can focus on doing that work! Between now and then I will update all of the backers of Programming Hope through an update email like this once a month, that way you can keep track of the project as we move along. Other news will also be available on the website (http://www.programminghope.com) as well.
We're also getting ready to print the T shirts many of you will receive as part of your rewards package. In the next few days I'll be sending an email out for addresses and sizes.
Thanks so much to everyone! Just remember, I'm making a documentary, but the nonPareil Institute is Programming Hope!!
