Kicking things off with Kickstarter

Have you heard of Kickstarter? It is a fantastic crowd-source platform designed to promote and fund creative projects. And though I was incredibly nervous about doing so, today I launched a Kickstarter campaign for the UNSETTLEMENT project!

The deeper we get into this project the more I become aware of just how much financing it is going to take to do this the right way. I am so lucky to have the SCAD Fellowship for Professional Development and my amazing sponsor at Signatour Campers, but we are still coming up short. We are hoping to raise at least $2,000 on Kickstarter to help round out our funding. If you are able, please make a pledge. Every $5 is another gallon of gas and a few more miles down the road. And in exchange for your pledge of support, we are offering some wonderful rewards!

The thing about Kickstarter is that it is all or nothing. If we meet (or exceed!) our $2,000 goal then the project will be fully funded and you will receive your fun and fabulous rewards (see below.) However, if we do not meet our goal then your credit card will not be charged and the project will not receive any of the money pledged. YOU are an integral part of the success of this project, so please help spread the word. Tell your friends, your family, share the link on Facebook and Twitter. Every donation, big or small, gets us another mile down the road! This is one big party and the more the merrier!

So please, follow the link, view my campaign, and pledge your support if you can. Thank you!!
