Year-End Miracle & Dance Party!

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

Hello everyone!

As the year ticks down our Kickstarter campaign is entering its final stretch. The support we've received from you all has been nothing short of amazing. Thank you all again!

To date we've raised 38K+, through 443 backers from all over the world. The Iran Job has been featured on CNN, the Washington Post, and the Huffington Post, while more news is soon to follow. We're 12K short of reaching our goal of 50K.

Not surprisingly the last couple of days have been a bit slow with many folks vacationing and enjoying time away from the office (hopefully!).  As most of you know Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding model, meaning if we don't reach our goal of 50K we will actually not see any of the funding to date. Therefore we're hoping for another miracle - hopefully this time a year-end miracle to maintain our fund raising pace

We would be enormously thankful if you could try to inspire one or two people to match your pledge before the year is up. It could be the last thing they do in 2011 and it would directly affect our year-end milestone and the 2012 prospects of The Iran Job.

Also, for those of you in the NYC area, please join us next Thursday, January 5, for our end-of-campaign FUNDRAISER DANCE PARTY:

Here are the details:
