The kickstarter campaign is right where I hoped it would be at this point, 65% funded and 20 days to go. The contributions have slowed to a crawl which is a bit worrisome given that I still need to raise $2789 in the next 20 days, but I am optimistic about it and think people will come though. Of course I am hoping that I can spread the word about the kickstarter campaign in the various cities i visit over the coming weeks, though I have no idea what the response and support will be from new friends I meet along the way. I am trying to think of creative ways to get the word out besides continually spamming my facebook, so if you have more ideas I am all ears!
I would like to really thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for helping support this project. Things are looking good, but I still need help in getting the word out there, so if you can find the time and willingness to share the kickstarter or my website on your social networks, email lists or with personal friends please do. Thanks again!
