$5,000 Match!

Comment

Hey Friends! (Sorry for the back to back update but we have some great news!)

A super generous donor is matching the next $5,000 in pledges in our HopeMob KickStarter campaign until we hit $111,000! 646 different backers have pledged $105,812 w/ 5 days left to hit $125,000! 

Together we can do it!  We're literally 15% away from accomplishing something on KickStarter that's never been done before!

Thanks Team!

Update #22

5 Days Left & Just $20,000 to Go!

Comment

Hey Friends!

I hope you are doing very well!

We have just about 5 days left to go in our KickStarter campaign to BUILD HOPE!  So far we've raised $104,724 and we are so close to our final goal! 

I can't do it without you!  We need these next 5 days to be our biggest and best days ever.  As you know, if we don't hit $125,000 by Friday, we don't get anything at all!

  • Would you please make a personal appeal to your friends and family to pledge right away?
  • We still have some amazing prizes left ranging from photoshoots, consulting, t-shirts, trips, and so much more!
  • If you have any room to increase your pledge at all that will also make a huge difference since we're so close!

Thank you all so much!!

Shaun & Crew

Update #20

Just Crossed $100,000!

1 comment

Wow!!!

Our friends @ Eastern University in Philadelphia just became a founding partner of HopeMob and made a pledge of $12,500!  This pledge was our largest to date and just pushed us over the $100,000 mark with just under 11 days to go!  We are so grateful for their generosity.  As a part of their pledge, we will tell stories of Eastern students in the months ahead when we launch.

This means that we are 81% of the way to our final goal with 19% to go!!!

We're going to do this! 600 generous strangers from all over the world are building the best platform for generosity the world has ever seen!!

Thank you all for your passionate support!

Let's go!

Shaun & the HopeMob Team
