Detroit je t'aime hitting the news!

1 comment

Dear all,

Thank to your generous support and word of mouth, Detroit je t'aime is hitting the headlines this week! Today we are on the frontpage of the Hufftington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/detroit/

We've also been featured in several French publications such as the prestigious newspaper Le Monde, as well as Glamour Magazine and Les Inrockuptibles. See all of our press coverage on our page www.detroitjetaime.com/press

Our Kickstarter campaign has 23 more days to go and right now we reached 17% of our goal thanks to 86 backers. This is great, but we need to do better! We're hoping to get to 20% by tonight. Please keep on beating your drums for us!!!

With love from Detroit,

Nora&Helene
