Kickstarter Update, Day 5: More than 3/4 of The Way

Hello Everyone,

An exciting day on the Kickstarter to help bring Des Grieux to the public. As of this writing, the total raised is $2295, which equates to 76% funded. 76! Like the basketball team of the same name! It’s a great number, to be sure, and one that I could not be happier about considering my inexperience with this whole crowdfunding endeavour. Everyone has shown me what a powerful tool this can be for things other than gadgets and tech startups. I’ve really learned a lot in 5 days. So, in addition to your support, thank you for putting up with my growing pains.

Friday was the busiest day so far for this project, in terms of the volume of corresponding I’ve been doing. Earlier in the day I had an opportunity to speak with a backer about a cool project she is trying to launch to bring together sex-positive people with other cool sex-positive projects that sometimes have a difficult time on standard internet platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and the like, not to mention non-judgemental webhosting.
