About this project
*Our Kickstarter is cancelled but our project is thriving. Visit http://extraordinary.is to follow our progress.
Everything meets at least 3 of our 4-point sustainability criteria so you're discovering and supporting local businesses making a positive difference beyond our tree program.
Healthy: You'll find tons of outdoor activities, organic groceries, locavore restaurants... everything you need to live a healthier, more balanced and resourceful way of life.
Community-minded: You'll discover businesses that organize community programs, volunteer their time or make significant charitable contributions.
Planet-friendly: You'll find businesses that participate in the sharing economy, provide eco-friendly alternatives and proactively reduce their footprint.
Local: You'll find indie businesses that help create jobs, increase investment, reduce environmental impact and reduce taxation in your own back yard.
We've connected 20,000+ people and 300+ businesses in Vancouver with a $30 book. Now we're coming to San Francisco, Portland and Seattle with a free app.

We believe the best way to accelerate positive change, address global issues and create a compelling future is to make smarter choices about how we live and what we buy. We believe anyone can live an extraordinary life and make a positive difference.

Risks and challenges
Extraordinary is being developed by a team of experienced technologists and creatives passionate about helping people live healthier, more sustainable lives and make a positive difference in the world. Together, we have:
- Founded several ventures
- Developed mobile apps for various Fortune 500 clients
- Designed widely used SAAS applications
- Developed award-winning mobile games
Design is nearly complete, development is underway and we have pre-existing customers. Risk is minimal. However, until the app is live, there is always a chance of unexpected setbacks. Our technical and PM experience can further reduce this risk.
Two things we're committed to: 1) delivering a truly fantastic product, and 2) transparency and communication with pledgers as we move toward completion.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
