You guys. You guys!!! Yesterday was crazy! When we launched the Kickstarter at 8 a.m. Bryce and I hoped to get (maybe) $3,000 in our first day. The first $1,000 came in 19 minutes. 19 minutes!! After 40 minutes we had $2,000.That goal of ours, to get $3,000, was blasted away in under 2 hours! After 3 hours we were already at $5,000–half way to our funding goal. Could it be possible to fund in ONE DAY?
The answer to that question is yes! Because we funded around 9:30 p.m. last night!
As of this email we are at $11,791!
A big THANK YOU goes out to you–all our supporters! If it weren’t for you this wouldn’t have happened. So thanks. Thanks for believing in the Ergo Spout® with us.
So what happens now? First, because we reached our funding goal, the Ergo Spout® will be manufactured and sent to all our backers.
Second, the Kickstarter will remain live for the next 29 days and we will work toward stretch goals. We have three.
Stretch Goal #1 Once we reach $30,000, we will add a fourth color option. Backers will be able to vote on this color choice. The top color by number of votes wins!
Stretch Goal #2 If we reach $50,000, we will engage our designers and engineers to design and develop the Wide Mouth version, and purchase a second set of molds. Note: If we do make this goal, delivery of the Wide Mouth version will be a few months after the Regular Mouth version due to design work and engineering.
Stretch Goal #3 If we hit $70,000, we have a surprise for our backers. We will reveal the surprise once we hit the $50,000 goal. Don’t worry, you’re going to love it!
If you haven’t got your Ergo Spout® yet, you’ll want to place your order before the Early Bird price of $15 per Ergo Spout® expires. If you have already backed our project, please share. We would love to hit those stretch goals.
Thanks again. Really.
