Risks and challenges
We've been in production for 13 years, creating and delivering media. We have realistic timeframes built into our production schedule and have accounted for manufacturing delays, proofing, subtitling etc. Any delays would be minimal, a matter of weeks, not months. We've done it before on Kickstarter, we are ready to do it again. We are hard at work as you read this! ~Rachel ColemanLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
Nope! We will get you the digital products ASAP! (As soon as produced!)
Absolutely not! Leah is taking a trip to Europe with her high school and we decided to meet her there. I got thinking, Aaron (my hubby) will be there AND of course he will have his camera! My sister said, "Are you kidding? You don't know how to take a vacation without working!" But... we'll BE IN EUROPE! I have to throw the opportunity out to our Signing Time Families.
Nope. It ends Saturday, JUNE 14th around 7pm PST. When it's over, it's over.
Nothing happens. Your credit card isn't charged. We don't get a dime of the money raised. Backers don't get rewards. We don't make three new shows.
You want to MANAGE YOUR PLEDGE. Don't change your Reward, just change the DOLLAR amount to include your Reward amount AND your Add-On amount. Double check your math and SUBMIT. How will we know what you want? We will send you a survey and you will let us know about your Add-ons!
