Great day for the magazine’s Kickstarter yesterday. We started at $3,000 and hit $3,160 by midnight. Then between a few overnight pledges and a generous pledge increase from Anatoly Belilovsky (Thanks Anatoly!) we hit 50% ($3,250) around 11 a.m. today!
50% was my realistic goal for the week. (And it means that I will be posting the best story I ever found when I was working as a reporter.)
Since there is a little over half a day left today, I’d love to see our total pushed to $3,500 by midnight.
$3,500 would mean we only have to find $3,000 more in pledges in the final week. The Kickstarter closes at the end of the day next Friday, Eastern Time. The farther along we are by midnight tonight, the better off we will be.
So thanks to all who have pledged. If you are thinking about it, now would be a great time to give us some momentum for the big push next week. And please keep spreading the word. This IS going to happen.
