From the bottom of my heart...
To everyone who has supported this project over the last twenty days, I want to say thank you. After announcing our final week push, more than $1000 was was pledged in less than 24 hours - easily carrying me over the goal. I could not be happier.
It is impossible to articulate how much this money will mean to me. The work I will now be able to produce, means so much to me and to my future. You have given me a gift I will never be able to repay. I will, of course, endeavour to express my gratitude by making your rewards as beautiful and memorable as possible.
One of the most touching aspects of the last day was the money that came in AFTER the goal was reached. This additional show of support means the world.
Keeping in mind kickstarter's all or nothing policy, this budget was bare bones. After rewards are produced and fees and taxes are paid, this is the very least I could imagine producing this work with. It would be fantastic if we could continue to raise funds for the next five days. Any additional money will go directly into making this work as good as it can possibly be.
Again, thank you so very much to all the good friends (and new friends) who helped me get to this point. Now let's reach for the stars!
