So we did this Kickstarter thing. It was pretty amazing, actually. I really thought it was kind of a pain in the butt; opening the Amazon payments account, making a video introduction, GETTING PEOPLE TO FUND US! It was daunting, and I hate failure, and moreover, being out of control – there, I’ve publicly admitted it. If you have a project which needs funding, and you have a few dedicated followers, I couldn’t recommend Kickstarter more. I have to say that I was pretty emotional when I saw who was contributing. Friends I haven’t spoken with in a long time, acquaintances who I didn’t know appreciated our efforts, strangers who we hope to meet one day! As part of our Kickstarter campaign, one of the rewards was to thank our backers on a special page dedicated to them on The Color Awesome. We chose not to show the dollar value of funding from our contributors. If you take a moment, you’ll probably find as many reasons as I have not to. So without further introduction, we would like to thank, in order of contribution:
WHAZMA SAMIZAY, DAVID ZINN, THORLEY PAPAY, NATHAN CLARK, TODD ARKLEY, COREY GUTCH, LAYNE SHEPHERD, CATHERINE CIESLA, JOHN CAMPOS, JANE MANNING, MICHAEL ELLSWORTH, CAROLYN, HOLLY, LETICIA BRITOS CAVAGNARO, CAROLINE SIMARD, CHRISTINE UREN, WENDYJUSTUS, EMMA, PETER, PAT PARSONS, GARTH, ROB MAPES, DEAN HARLESS, MICHAEL ENGEL, JENNIFER & NOLAN REYES, BRIAN O’SHEA, JOYCE, VMUUS, BRIAN, BORIS HUSSEIN ERICKSON, and PAMELA ROONEY.
Your special podcast should be coming within the week. I will also catch everyone up with words and photos about the event, and how amazing our experience was. I may even include some do’s and don’ts if you’re planning on throwing a two day festival, and some fun new terminology I learned through the process!
