As of mailing this newsletter we are just $650 short of reaching our goal in our Indiegogo Campaign.
While the published goal is $13,500 dollars I have not been sitting on my laurels this past month. Besides building all the perks in the campaign we've also been working local Art Markets, Farmers Markets, Community Events, Commissions. Also we sold some school fixtures that would've been excess in the new downsized school. We've raised quite a lot on our own towards that $13,500 goal and are ready to throw it all into the campaign. So in actuality if we can just sneak in another $650 in sales on Indiegogo we will have made it.
I'm holding back on putting in that last amount until we raise that last bit because if you understand how Indiegogo works they take 9% of all donations until you reach your goal then they return 4% as a bonus (thus they make the most money on campaigns that fall $1 short) Holding back is a math issue. Difference of 9% cost vs 4% cash back.
This just means...
Just $650 more and we're there!
Please help us spread the word!
Also forgive us for 'spamming' you three times this month. I personally think an update every month or two is more appropriate but I hope you understand this is a special circumstance.
