We broke through — and it’s still going strong
Just two days after reaching our target, we’ve now broken $75,000. The response has left us speechless: we’re completely amazed by how committed you all are and by how much faith you’ve shown in MATTER’s potential.
As our way of saying thanks, we’re going to upgrade every single reward so that everybody will get more stories for free.
- $10 backers will now get five stories instead of three
- $25 backers will now get a three month subscription
- $50 pledges are being upgraded to a six month subscription
- $100 backers will get a whole year of stories for their money
- Higher level pledges will get a full year’s subscription to give away to a friend, on top of what they’re already getting.
That’s a lot more MATTER. But, hey, we wanted to return the good will you have shown to us.
The way we designed the project is simple: the higher our total goes, the better we can make everything. Every dollar gives us more room to run, allows us to commission more stories straight off the bat, lets us deliver to more platforms and helps make MATTER nicer to use.
Plus, since we filled up our $1,000 co-pilot slots, we’re opening up a new reward level: now if you now pledge $1,000, you will receive everything at the lower levels plus a super-deluxe, limited-run, numbered hardcover edition of our MATTER anthology, signed by every single one of the contributors and featuring specially-commissioned art and infographics. That comes on top of a lifetime subscription, a goody bag (including postcard, T-shirt, print anthology), membership of the editorial board and a one-year subscription to give away. We’re only opening 10 slots for that one.
The counter says there are still 26 days to go. We’re rubbing our eyes in disbelief. Thanks again for all your support.
