Wow! Thank you! We crossed $100,000 and kept on going!

Dear Backers,

We did it! Thanks to YOU we have crossed $100,000. However, people are now pledging even more now that we've achieved our super-stretch goal. $100K was about an hour ago and it's already $102,400. We're going to keep going until the very end and try to raise as much as possible. I would love it if you guessed the final amount in the comments section. 

Thanks so much! It's hard to find new ways to express it!

Tom (and Ben!)

      We are hoping for $110,000 because that will net us $100,000 after Kickstarter's and Amazon's fees. I think we can do it. $103,345.

      I think $111,111 would be perfection.

      Way to go all you "backers" - brings a tear to my eye - my guess is we'll hit $108,000
