A look at all we've accomplished so far

Posted by Ryan Fitzgibbon (Creator)

Hello!

You guys blow me away. I cannot believe all that we've managed to accomplished in the last few days. Here are some highlights:

– Our funding progress and the number of backers were doubled in just 10 days!
– 13,300 is the current play count for our video
– Our Facebook page is just shy of 1,000 likes (and isn't even a month old!)
– 580 people are following us of Twitter. #radical

And in other news…no seriously we were in the news yesterday! The Age (Melbourne) and The Sydney Morning Herald published an article about crowdfunding and used Hello Mr. as the featured project. Read all about it here. 

All of this is in large part thanks to you. Your support has been immense, so I'll only request this one last time that you share our campaign with your friends and encourage them to pre-order a copy of Hello Mr. while there's still time to do so. Every dollar that we raise beyond our $20,000 goal will be invested into the development of the digital edition, and will help generate even greater content for our first issue. Please help me make Hello Mr. even more amazing than I could have ever expected.

Ok, NOW I'll leave you to it. I'm fairly certain we'll get there, aren't you? x

      Hi Dave, thanks for your support. And absolutely, married misters are very much welcome to the party! As much as Hello Mr. is ABOUT men who date (or marry) men, it's FOR everyone. The men AND women who are contributing, are crafting their content to be reflective and insightful pieces on relationships, life, and understanding ourselves – themes that everyone can hopefully relate to and be entertained by.

      I found out about this project in here: http://www.queerty.com/watch-sexy-new-hello-mr-is-for-hip-homos-probably-20121116/
      And I need to admit that as my first backed project on kickstarter I'm proud to say that after seeing the project I was more then happy to help. I hope that this start will flourish into an awesome magazine!
      I wish you all the best

      I was happy to contribute a $50 pledge to what seems like a valuable and exciting project. You had me when one of your Hello Misters in the video was shown reading X-Force and wearing a toque.

      I have one question - you say that your magazine is for "men who date men." What about men who marry men?
