We're in the Final Stretch!

As we enter the final 72 hours of the Kickstarter, I'd like to take a moment to express just how wonderful this experience has been. We've spread the word about Pursuance, we've made new friends, and we've so far succeeded in raising over 75% of our $48,000 goal in less than a month. It's been a real trip, and we're so thankful for all of you who have chosen to come along for the ride.

One Last Push

To complete the final leg of this effort, we're reaching out to everyone we can to tell them about Pursuance and what it will mean to gain this funding. If we reach our Kickstarter goal, we will have the funds needed to commence full-time technical development and enable a global federation of activist groups, journalists, and nonprofits to do good, better. We're tweeting up a storm; Barrett has lined up more interviews and is releasing more articles; and later today we're going to provide a demo of Pursuance and show you just how far we've already been able to take this vision (on a budget of $0!), and how much farther we plan to go.

Coming this far has been a highly collective endeavor. Our success will continue to depend on the combined support of the many who support our vision, and we appreciate all contributions you can continue to make to our efforts. Telling your friends and colleagues about Pursuance, tweeting about us (our Twitter is here!) and sharing the project across social media, or just adding an extra $5 to your current backing can make all the difference. 

We have also prepared the elements for a massive Tweetstorm, with template tweets that you can easily repost. Please do participate, if you'd like.

For Two-Tier Backers

A reminder to everyone interested in purchasing another tier - the Kickstarter platform technically doesn't enable the purchase of two separate tiers. There are two workarounds for this - you can either buy a second tier using a guest account, or add the cost of the second tier to the amount you've already contributed and send us a message specifying what the money is for. If you've previously tried to purchase a second tier without doing one of the above, please contact us immediately. We want to make sure you get the tiers you want!

Onward and Upward!

Once again, we are grateful to all of you who have supported the Pursuance Project - by telling us what this means to you, by speaking out on our behalf, and by funding our effort. Your support isn't just appreciated; it's honored.

All the Best,

Claire Peters
