Update #16

$6,000 Reward and A $7,000 Change

1 comment

First off, we've managed to hit the $6,000 stretch goal with under 24 hours to go!  Thanks, everyone for your support!

Now ... based on feedback and some intuition, I've decided to eliminate the $7,000 reward of the plastic cups, and move the $8,000 reward, the backpacks, down to fill that spot.  So, for the final push today, if we can hit $7,000, everyone who pledges $50 or more will get a super-awesome KantCon backpack!
