Update, Friday:

With 8 days to go before our deadline, we're at 155 percent of our initial goal, and making amazing progress toward our stretch goals.

In fact, we've just a major pledge to the project made outside the Kickstarter system, with Polly Basore of Wichita, Kan., backing "Panorama de la linea" with a $1,000 contribution.

She joins Tucson's Donna Somma as one of the Presenting Sponsors of reception that will celebrate the project.

Thanks to both of them, and to everyone else who's made an investment in solid border reporting by backing Panorama.

But we've still got a ways to go — we need 79 more people to become backers of this Kickstarter in the next several days, so that we meet a challenge goal of 200 supporters. If we do, we'll see another $1,000 pledged to the project, thanks to a generous donor — who's also adding another $2,000 when we top $8,300 in funding.

We're on track to meet those goals, but we could use your help in signing on the 79 more people we need.

Please take just a few minutes and let people know why it's important that they join in our effort to paint a vivid and accurate picture of the borderlands.

We've hit our base goal on Kickstarter, but we've got ambitious stretch goals and a very generous set of matching challenges to meet. If you haven't kicked in yet, you still can. Our initial goal was very conservative — now we can expand our project with your help.

If you are already a backer, we could still use your help — encourage your friends, family and colleagues to pledge, even if it's just $5.
