The Modern World!!

My son Chris's Kickstarter campaign is now closed.  My other son Jeff and I counted down the minutes together.   I'd been sitting here watching because it is fascinating to see the backers kick in, but I have to say I did a double or triple take when it jumped from 25,000 to 30,000.  I called Chris.  He hadn't yet caught it.  His campaign closed at $30,168 with 275 backers.  People have given $1.00, $5.00, $25.00 and on up.  If you are interested, you can see the break-down here.


He had reached $18,500, his goal, when someone suggested opening it up to the International world, and so he did, and money came in.

Now, he's worried the film won't be "good enough".  Yes, it will.  This much love and connection around the world.  How could it not?

This wouldn't have been possible not that long ago.  I first heard about Kickstarter a year or so ago, though I see now they launched in 2009.  I am completely overwhelmed. Maybe it's good I'm heading out on a silent retreat, because I am speechless.
