We made our funding goal—TIMES FOUR!
Where to begin...
On WED of last week we reached our funding goal.
On FRI we become the most funded fashion project on Kickstarter of all time.
On SUN the meter read 4X our goal.
This morning we had an "all hands" meeting with everyone involved and - without going into too many details - thing got a bit emotional. It's not every day US manufacturers get great news. And we've still got 3 weeks of fundraising left to go!
...you gave all that to us and in return we're going to send you some really great underwear. I was hoping you might take a minute or two to help us out again though. Three things really, it shouldn't take long:
1 - Tell us what you like. Because Kickstarter won't actually let us send out the surveys asking for size, color, and style options until May 22nd, we're taking this extra time to make sure we're going to meet or exceed expectations. With that in mind, CLICK HERE https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PDHJZ9G to tell us what it is you like and don't like about the underwear you're currently wearing, what you look for when buying, etc.
The information you share can only help the development process. Plus Ralph Lauren probably never surveyed 2500 customers about their underwear. We love that we're getting the chance to and think the insights you provide could pay off big.
2 - Tell others what you think. So far, 20% of all sales through this Kickstarter have come through Facebook and Twitter.
On Facebook? If you haven't already done so, please post this link http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jakehimself/flint-and-tinder-premium-mens-underwear to your Facebook page letting your friends and family know about the project. It's so easy, but does so much.
If you have already posted, it'd be great if you joined our page as well... http://www.facebook.com/FLINTandTINDER
Got Twitter? Consider tweeting the following: American Manufacturing wants back in your underpants. Check out the video http://kck.st/IjHTLv #GetFlintandTinder
3 - Tell the press this matters too. Got a favorite news show, newspaper or magazine? Go to their web site, click their "contact" button and send them a tip. Feel free to cut and past the following or write your own note explaining why this story is important (wouldn't it be fun seeing Flint and Tinder on TV?):
Did you know there's a 99% chance your underwear comes from China, Thailand or Indonesia? Flint and Tinder wants to change all that, make a better product and help rebuild a 100 year-old factory in the process… http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jakehimself/flint-and-tinder-premium-mens-underwear ... you should do a story on it!
Thanks again for all of your support. It's been a wild ride so far and everyone involved is working really hard to make sure that the product we send you is a product you'll love for a very long time! Let us know if there's anything else we can do.
