Our values are in line with the "open source way" (exchange, participation, rapid-prototyping, meritocracy & community). The project will be accessible and adaptable for anyone to use. We do not currently plan on the site being an open coding platform, but are not ruling it out.
The money is going directly to the building of the online platform; coding, designing and executing. Despite how simple the idea is, there are a lot of working parts to make it all come together smoothly.
As Mark Twain once wrote "I would have written you a shorter letter if I had more time"
We added the $25 reward later in the program and could not change the text for the $45 reward. Just to clarify, as we do in both the $25 and $60 reward levels, the $45 reward level is only a tee shirt and the $60 reward level is a tee shirt and journal.
