New to Kickstarter? Read here to learn how it works!

All Stretch goals have been met. Wow! 

Do you enjoy getting to know people at a deeper level? Perhaps your work requires you to understand how others view their world and the people in it? Or maybe you want to have more thought-provoking conversations with family and friends. Would you value having a tool that allows you to explore these important perspectives?

Describe is that tool! Describe is a deck of cards that provides you this opportunity through a number of interesting activities. There's even a game included for families/groups. Each card has an adjective, as well as three questions related to that adjective. The instructions include many different activities that individuals, couples, families, and groups to explore and discuss how they describe people, places, and things in their lives.

"You've gotta support this. These things are awesome.
       - Joe Sanok, Private Practice Consultant, Practice of the Practice

Describe - Prototype Card
Describe - Prototype Card

I'm Rob Reinhardt, a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice. I developed Describe over the course of eight years because I wanted a fun, interesting way to explore the important perspectives of my clients. Using the many activities possible with Describe cards, I've been able to quickly understand where people are coming from, what's important to them, and what things they might like to address or change in their lives. Describe has been an incredibly useful tool in working with individuals, couples, families, and groups!

While Describe was originally conceived of as a counseling tool, Teachers, Coaches, School Counselors, and even individuals and families find it interesting and fun to use! (You can read the full instructions for Describe here.)

"When I think about Describe and...how powerful it is with clients, it's one of those absolute necessities in my opinion."
    - Michael Dunaway, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate

After years of development and refinement, I'm ready to offer this wonderful tool to everyone! And I need your help to get it out to the world (and to you as well!). By pledging to the project, you not only make this interesting tool available to others, but you can also receive a copy (or more) for yourself!

Also, please help Describe happen by spreading the word to your friends, family and colleagues. You never know who might want to join in on the journey of perspective exploration!

How Does Kickstarter Work?
Kickstarter is similar to pre-ordering. Backers pledge an amount toward the product. If the funding goal is reached, all pledges are then collected and rewards delivered to Backers around the estimated delivery date(s). If the funding goal is not met, no pledges are collected. I've written a series of articles about crowdfunding for those curious to learn more. You can also read the Kickstarter FAQ for Backers

Please support Describe by choosing a pledge level to the right.  Thank you for your help in making Describe a reality!

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is an "all or nothing" platform. Your credit card will not be charged (and the dream of Describe will not be realized) unless the funding goal is met. If the funding goal is met, your card will be charged and you, if you pledged at the appropriate reward level, you will receive your copy or copies of Describe around the estimated delivery date. I pledge to be prompt with answers to all questions and to keep backers updated at all times as to the status of the project. Thank you for spreading the word to make this happen for all of us!

Describe is already a complete product and some copies have already been printed successfully. I've already identified a printer, as well as a back-up printer in case demand exceeds the capability of the first printer. The only potential challenges I foresee are production or shipping delays. Since I have no control over the schedule of the printers or postal service, it's possible there could be delays in those areas.

To account for this, I have set a very conservative delivery date (November). This provides five to six months from the end of the Kickstarter to delivery of the product. It's possible delivery will happen sooner than this. However, if there are delays, Describe should still arrive by the estimated delivery date. I am committed to making regular updates and seeing this project through to the finish!
