The world is full of big stories. We don't want them to go missing.

2,566 backers pledged $140,201 to help bring this project to life.

We made it!

Thank you. Truly.

We’ve reached our target far faster than we ever imagined possible. We’ve been totally blown away by the enthusiasm and interest in what we’re trying to do. It’s great to know so many people are as committed to independent, quality journalism as we are.

Reaching $50,000 so quickly means that we can get the ball rolling right away. We’re already talking to our writers, putting agreements in place and starting work on building the MATTER website.

But every extra story we can commission now will make MATTER stronger going forward. Every extra dollar we get through Kickstarter will help us line up more stories, which means we won’t have to wait for the money from one article to pay for the next.

And if we can get to $75,000, we can upgrade everyone’s subscriptions so that you’ll be getting more stories for your support.

So it would be fantastic if you, the people who have got us this far, can continue to spread the word. The more pledges we receive, the stronger MATTER will be.

      Wowness. Awesome. Congrats. I was scrambling to get out the credit card to be your first backer, now I'm proud I did so. Really looking forward to this, I'll spread the word.

      I knew if I became a backer you would take off like a Rocket
