I've recorded a video blog this week because we've got some very exciting news that I wanted to share face-to-face. I'm thrilled to announce that on Tuesday, September 26th, we will officially be launching our Kickstarter campaign for When We Were Apollo!
For those of you unfamiliar with Kickstarter, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform which allows anyone with an Internet connection to financially back a creative project in exchange for a reward. Over the years, crowdfunding on Kickstarter has brought tens of thousands of projects to life, from films and documentaries to professional art installations to exciting new gadgets and technologies. It truly has become an integral part of the fundraising process for any creative endeavor!
I'm asking if you'll commit today to pledging $1.00 on the first day of our campaign. One of the things that can really make a difference in crowdfunding is to have great momentum coming right out of the gate. An enthusiastic backer response on day one not only gets us closer to hitting our financial goal; it sends a powerful message to Kickstarter and others thinking about backing When We Were Apollo that our project is one they should support!
To show our gratitude, we're offering all of our day one backers a free When We Were Apollo mission patch sticker (see above). This sticker will be available throughout our campaign for $5.00, but we're giving them away absolutely free to everyone that contributes at least $1.00 when the campaign launches on the 26th!
A lot more to come in the days ahead as we get closer to our launch. Things are about to get really, really exciting!
