We made it!

Hey everybody! We just made our goal thanks to all of you! Bette Houtchens was the backer that took us to the mark -- yippee! We'll keep our campaign open until the original deadline of 11:59 PM on 2/14. That means backers can still make a pledge and receive cool stuff like 2 VIP tickets at the $50 level. Thank you to all who made pledges and invited their friends to pledge. You are the best!
