What a blessing....
This was such an amazing 33+ days... There was an enormous amount of time, effort, and money put into the creation of this project, but the moment I clicked "Launch Project", that is when the real work started. What a journey! Each and every one of you helped make this project a success, and we are forever grateful. I especially want to thank the countless people that helped promote our project. People I haven't had the pleasure of meeting, yet they spent time (and money) pushing something we both believe in. We will not disappoint you.
Our KickStarter project ended Sunday evening. After a much needed day of rest, I am refreshed and ready! Although it takes approximately 14 days for the funds to be deposited into our bank, we will be able to start making the necessary purchases right away (due to multiple generous contributions outside of KickStarter). Once we have the necessary tools/inventory to assemble your rewards, we will work diligently to get them to you A.S.A.P. In the meantime, I will be sending out "Backer Surveys" which will help collect the info that we need to send you your reward (contact info, shipping address, etc...). I will be sending a detailed form to those who chose the "Exquisite Dinner" reward as well. Feel free to submit your survey at your leisure, but we will need it submitted in order to send you your much earned reward.
What's After That?
My wife is going to be mad at me for this, but we are already planning another KickStarter project to help fund our India Trip! We have already begun to plan a dual purpose trip to the "Spice Capital of the World"! The main purpose of this trip is to film a documentary about the spice trade in India. We will also hunt down the world's best spices in their natural habitat, and get them into your hands! Please get in touch with us if you are interested in joining us on this trip or if you would like to support our efforts. We should be launching this project within the next 35 days. Stay tuned!
