Update #5

Goal Achieved!

Comment

Congratulations! We are going to have a treehouse!

What happens now:

This means that every reward is now GUARANTEED. If you request a T-Shirt you will receive a T-Shirt. If you request a drawing, you will receive a drawing.

But this is still just the beginning. We're only ONE WEEK IN. Yes, $5000 is what we need to get this treehouse off the ground, but only by the skin of our teeth. The more funding we can find, the better the treehouse will be, and the sooner we can make it a reality. Every dime will go towards The Treehouse.

Things are going to get interesting now. Keep your eyes open for NEW REWARDS and TREEHOUSE UPGRADES that can be unlocked as we set our sights on new heights for The Treehouse at Yale.

Let people know that this is happening!
