Thanks everyone for your support, we already hit our 10% mark on attempt #2! Wooo hoooo. I'm going to make this the last update to you original amazing backers!
I got a couple of questions I wanted to answer, first, "Does my previous pledge roll over to attempt #2?"
No, we did not get nor can we renew your pledge from attempt #1. We can only use attempt #1 to talk to you. To re-order a Stand-Up Desk Kit, you will need to pledge again on attempt #2 at standupdeskkit.com/kickstarter/
And we hope all of you do pledge again!
Secondly, "How do I help spread the word, I've already Facebooked you?" Many of the sites you read each day have teams who find new content. Look for a contact us link, or an editor's email address. Then send them this:

Their Press Release:
Two Utah entrepreneurs have just released their newest product designed to benefit millions of office workers worldwide. The Stand-Up Desk Kit is an adjustable desk surface allowing the user to stand at their desk rather than sitting for long hours.
“Sitting all day at work was making us sluggish, slow, and stiff. Plus, we didn't have much energy when we got home,” said Pace McCulloch, a web developer from Springville. “After switching to a standing work station, we immediately saw an increase in mental sharpness, more energy and less back pain. It’s hard not to move more when you’re standing. And by the way, I lost 15 pounds!”
The Stand-Up Desk Kit is a smooth 47 x 23 x 1 inch desk surface that sits securely on top of a current desk, easily converting it into a stand up desk. There are four non-slip, adjustable legs made of recyclable ABS plastic which adjust in 1" increments for various heights, allowing just about everyone to reap the many health benefits of standing while working. At its lowest, the Stand-Up Desk Kit is 12 inches above the original work surface, while at its highest setting the Stand-Up Desk Kit is 17 inches above the original work surface.
“We tried stacking boxes and books on our desk but it was impossible to safely get just the right height for a monitor and keyboard,” said Adam, a software engineer from Spanish Fork. “So we came up with the Stand Up Desk Kit and it not only adjusts for the perfect height, it looks really professional too.”
The Stand-Up Desk Kit's smooth top surface is made of high quality MDF composite wood, and is available in a choice of finishes. The Stand-Up Desk Kit is made in the USA with high quality materials.
“There are a number of studies showing that being more active throughout the day has positive results, both physically and mentally,” said McCulloch. “The human body burns more calories standing than sitting. Personally, I can’t imagine any employer not offering this as an option for their employees once they see how much more productive they are.”
