Thanking my Kickstarter backers

 In Book

I’ve spent the last week stuffing envelopes, bagging up spices, framing photos and compiling MP3 playlists for my Kickstarterbackers who will be receiving their rewards shortly. It has been a wonderful process to sit back, take in the last 9 months, and think about the generosity of the 277 people who supported my Kickstarter, many of whom I’ve never met but who were simply inspired by my idea. Their support has meant so much to me. Knowing I had several hundred people rooting for me and advocating my project on my behalf gave me an incredible amount of strength and has given the project a real sense of power. And I think that is what crowdfunding is all about really. It isn’t just about the money, it is about getting collective buy in. It is about ordinary people seeing something they would like to exist in the world and making it happen. And we did!

So to all my Kickstarter backers – including those who wanted to remain anonymous and are not on the list below – THANK YOU! Or as we say in Iran, MERCI! (I’m not sure how but the French word is widely used in Iran as the primary phrase for expressing thanks).

Merci to everyone who pledged, shared the project on social media, emailed it to friends, family and colleagues, wrote about
it on their blog and helped get the word out. You all rock. Big time. It feels like we are on a big old creative journey together and it sure aint over yet…
