Update #9

$7500 reached, and another prize or two

Comment

Thank you all- we reached $7500!  I was thinking for a while about what the next prize could be... here's what I'm thinking:

For those located in and around NYC, I will host a small event where you can pick up your books/rewards, view the original paintings, sip some wine, talk about art and other fun stuff.  The quality of this event will improve the more money I raise (e.g. better venue, food, drinks, etc)!

Since not everyone can attend this event, in addition, I will create a hidden section on the Cities of You website where I will periodically post "hidden cities" that only you can see!

So in summary, your prize package thus far:

  • Your original prize based on your pledge
  • A hand-made bookmark
  • An extra book
  • A collaborative postcard
  • Custom cities-of-you-themed stamps
  • Video documentation and video Q&A (please send me your questions!)
  • An upgrade from softcover to hardcover
  • Hand-painted interior cover
  • A quarterly gift for one year
  • Book upgrade from 80lb to 100lb paper
  • Invitation to event to view artwork
  • Access to hidden cities

We're almost at a week left in the campaign!  Keep sharing and keep promoting!  Thank you all so much!
