3 Days to go / Open House TODAY
(sorry for any dyslexic errors in this update; typically I have my wife, Anna edit my posts, but we are both so busy and I felt it was better to get an update out)
Only $1,102 to go to hit our first stretch goal
The Kickstarter closes Monday, midnight
Wow, yesterday (Friday) was a great day! We had a 27 new backers, and 7 so far today (it's 9:30am) yeh! We are getting super close to our first stretch goal to fund additional versions of the books at different reading levels. We are 76% of the way there and just need an additional $1,102 to get us there.
We are so close. Help us get there! Increase your pledge, Call that friend. Do your Facebook thing!
This stretch goal is something that is very personal to me. I'm dyslexic and I was one of those kids who fell behind with my reading. What I can tell you and what is so sad about what happens to kids in that situation is that you just don't have the emotional skills to deal with it. You shut down and shut off from reading.
