45 Hours to go, Funding Level 85%

Hey Backers,

Well another big day yesterday (over 8k) and today is trending to be even bigger. If the trend holds, this project is all but funded. :)

I’ve gotten a great response here in my home town from the radio spot this morning and I have another radio spot tentatively booked for later today.  For those who have missed it I’ve posted the interview on www.thekinkajou.com

I got a request from a backer yesterday who suggested that I write up a short blurb about my project and the Kickstarter site and make it available via an update. The purpose of this blurb is to make it easier for all the backers to spread the word (if they wish to). Something that’s easy to copy and paste. 

So here it is.

Kinkajou Bottle Cutter - Bring some new life to your empty bottles

Check out this Kickstarter project I’m currently backing.

Not familiar with Kickstarter? It’s a crowd funding site where people can pitch ideas and get funded before they actually execute the idea. The way it works is if someone likes the idea they pledge towards it by selecting one the rewards listed on the site. They then use a credit card to make the pledge, the credit card is only charged if the project reaches its goal. In this case, Patrick Lehoux (the creator of the Kinkajou), is trying to raise 75k. To date he’s raised 65k and he only has 45 hours left to raise the difference.

The Kinkajou can convert empty bottles to drinking glasses and vases.

Click on the link and watch the video. If you like it, pledge, if it’s not for you please forward this to the people who you think might like to own a Kinkajou Bottle Cutter.

Thanks

I feel like I’ve been running a marathon for the last 28 days. Running a Kickstarter project is a lot more work than I originally envisioned. With less than 2 days left, I can finally see the finish line and I am confident that with the enthusiasm and support I have been getting for the Kinkajou, this project will get funded.
