*UPDATES*

Holy cow we are cranking out these stretch goals!

As you can see we are extremely close to hitting the big daddy stretch goal at $5k for the BBD/CVM playmat. In my initial offer of this I was a bit too ambitious with the numbers and offered it for anyone who backed $25.00 or more. I am still going to honor this offer, as I expect that we will hit the $5k in the next 15 days, however I have now added a limit to the number of backers that will be able to receive the playmat at the $25.00 level.

The first 75 backers who pledged at least $25.00 will receive the playmat in addition to their rewards if we hit the $5k mark, and after that it will only be available to backers at the $50.00 or higher level. I have added a seperate $25.00 pledge for anyone who would just like to get a shirt and nothing else, but to make sure that I can actually afford all of the playmats and the rest of the rewards I have added the limit on the $25.00 rewards.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this is causing, and I didn't want to take the mat away from anyone who has already backed $25.00, so adding the cap and moving it seemed to be the fairest way to me to still deliver and not take away the reward.

I fully understand if anyone wants to remove their pledge. I understand just how good of a value a shirt and a playmat is for only $25.00, but due to cost restraints I am needing to add the cap and move it to $50.00 and higher.

For more happier news, we have reached the first two stretch goals, and are less than $10.00 away from the third, so you can plan on voting for me to dye my beard and show up to an open in a fancy suit. I imagine I will also be recording the raps!

I also want to announce that I have spoken with Kristen Plescow and she has agreed to work with us on the Playmat art!

Thank you all for your continued support!

$3000.00
If we are able to reach $3000.00 I will dye my beard! I will post color options and all of the backers will vote on what color I will dye my beard!

 $3500.00
If we are able to reach $3500.00 I will get a fancy schmancy suit and wear it to an open. All of my backers will also get to vote on the color of the shirt and tie that I wear! Better lock up your ladies, CVM is coming to an open near you!  

$4000.00
If we are able to reach $4000.00, I will record myself rapping all of the rap verses! With the permission of the people who they are written about, I will post them online for everyone to hear!

$5000.00
BIG DADDY! If we are able to reach $5000.00, *the first 75 backers who pledged $25.00 and anyone who pledged $50.00 or higher* will also receive a special BBD/CVM playmat! The design for the playmat isn't finished yet, but believe me - it will be awesome! 

*PICTURE UPDATE*

As you all know I had some prototypes sent to me when they were first created. I handed them out to a couple friends to wear at events, and now I have some pictures to share with everyone!

Perfect for those who don't have a beard, already have a beard, or just a pretty lady who wants to support beards! 

*UPDATE*

We've reached our goal! I am really so thankful of everyone for pledging so much, but we still have over three weeks remaining so I've decided to update with some stretch goals!

*UPDATE*

I am now able to get the shirts in sizes 5XL and 6XL!
If you are interested in these sizes, please add $2.00 to your pledge to cover the additional cost of the larger sizes.

Thanks!

Like I talked about in the video, a fan had contacted me about designing a shirt and I fell in love with it instantly.

Now I am trying to raise $2000.00 so that I can make a large order from his screen printing company and bring these shirts to all of you!

I will be using the money raised from this Kickstarter to fulfill all of the pledge rewards first and foremost. I will then be using any additional shirts that I have leftover from the order to give away on stream and to sell via Facebook and Twitter. Any funds generated by the sales of the shirt, or above and beyond what I am able to raise via the Kickstarter that is used for the initial shirt order will be used to enhance my stream and/or order more shirts!

This is all about you guys. My fans have been vocal about wanting these Beard Power shirts, and now I'm trying to bring it to everyone!

As you can see, the shirts will come in grey with the graphics being red, just like my beard.. They all have the "Beard Power" logo on the front, and my signature CVM with a heart around it on the back. They will be available in sizes from Small up to 4XL.

Risks and challenges

The main risk/challenge to completing this project will be fulfillment of the pledge rewards once the campaign is successful and ends.

Between working full time, traveling for Magic, writing and streaming, finding the spare time to fulfill everything will be a challenge - but I am definitely up for that challenge.

Making this campaign successful is something that is very important to me, and I plan on giving it my all to fulfill everything that I am promising!
