Yesterday, around noon, we hit our Kickstarter goal!  

We're starting to post "thank you" messages on the blog, with cats by Danielle Nemeth and designs by Olivia Huynh. Everyone who gives or already gave $5 or more gets a unique thank you. They look like this:

We're in the news!

Here's an article about the project!  Share it with your friends- it's a great way to spread the word about the project. I'd love to see some comments posted on the article, from participants and backers of Memory Tricks!

Thanks to Angie Bournemann of the Owings Mills Times, and Susan Walston for the photographs!

We also want to highlight the $75 contribution reward: a cartoon portrait created especially for you by one of the talented MICA artists in their own unique style. We'll work from your digital photograph, and send it to you digitally. You can use it as an online avatar, or print it out! We have a couple of samples to show you:

Lucy, by Olivia Huynh.

Brotee, by Juliana Chen.

This is a limited reward (15 remaining)! Pledge now, and let us know if there's a particular MICA artist you'd like to request.
