Well guess what. We just did, and we made it in five.
Our stretch goals from here on are going to be pretty straightforward: for every additional $1,000 we raise, we'll be increasing our creative teams' page rates by $5/page, or $60/story. This means that the next stretch goal is $4,000. Before, I wouldn't have dared to get my hopes up that we'd hit that goal; now, we have a real shot.
We still have plenty going on over the next 24 days of the campaign. Our twice-weekly interviews with the contributors over on Kelci's YouTube channel started today with Rainer Kannenstine, and the Ben Wright-Heuman interview will be this Saturday, 4/10, at 1 PM EST. That same day, the Early Bird Specials will expire, so we'll be pushing those right up until the last minute. We also still have Angela Boyle's Coloring Page Challenge, and we'll be announcing the first "Draw This In Your Style" Challenge soon. It's going to be a busy few weeks, to say the least.
Once again, thank you all for supporting this project in its early days. You have no idea how much it means to us.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
