Our KICKSTARTER Project Debut!

I know that we have been a little MIA lately.  Well now we can tell you why!  We have been hard at work and today is a big day!  

We are excited to announce that we have just launched our first Kickstarter Project!  I'm sure many of you have heard of Kickstarter before and for those of you who haven't, let me tell you what it is all about.  

1. Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.
We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009, 7 million people have pledged $1 billion, funding 69,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.
2. Each project is independently created.
The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control over and responsibility for their projects. Kickstarter is a platform and a resource; we’re not involved in the development of the projects themselves. Anyone can launch a project on Kickstarter as long as it meets our guidelines.
3. Together, creators and backers make projects happen.
Project creators set a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing — projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. All-or-nothing funding might seem scary, but it’s amazingly effective in creating momentum and rallying people around an idea. To date, an impressive 44% of projects have reached their funding goals.

4. Creators keep 100% ownership of their work.
Backers are supporting projects to help them come to life, not to profit financially. Instead, project creators offer rewards to thank backers for their support. Backers of an effort to make a book or film, for example, often get a copy of the finished work. A bigger pledge to a film project might get you into the premiere — or a private screening for you and your friends. One artist raised funds to create a wall installation, then gave pieces of it to her backers when the exhibit ended.
5. Creative works were funded this way for centuries.
Mozart, Beethoven, Whitman, Twain, and other artists funded works in similar ways — not just with help from large patrons, but by soliciting money from smaller patrons, often called subscribers. In return for their support, these subscribers might have received an early copy or special edition of the work. Kickstarter is an extension of this model, turbocharged by the web.

6. Backing a project is more than just giving someone money.
It’s supporting their dream to create something that they want to see exist in the world. People rally around their friends’ projects, fans support people they admire, and others simply come to Kickstarter to be inspired by new ideas. Some projects take longer than anticipated, but creators who are transparent about issues and delays usually find their backers to be understanding.
7. Our mission is to help bring creative projects to life.
We’re an independent company of 90 people based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We spend our time making Kickstarter a little bit better every day, answering questions from backers and creators, and finding new projects to share. If a project is successfully funded, we apply a 5% fee to the funds collected.
We believe that creative projects make for a better world, and we’re thrilled to help support new ones. Building a community of backers around an idea is an amazing way to make something new.
Now that you know a little bit about KICKSTARTER and what it's goal is, we would love share with our Project.  

The time has come...we are wanting to expand Kinder KeepsakesLLC, and we need your help! We are wanting to design our own animals for our Luvi Blankets! We have started a kickstarter project in hopes of getting pledges to be able to earn the money to design, manufacture and mass produce these plushies. Please help either by pledging or sharing! We have 29 days left to earn the full amount or we get nothing. Also, for every pledge you give you will receive a reward as a token of our appreciation. 

So again, thanks for your support! Whether you pledge or just share this with everyone you know, we are forever grateful! Help us be able to bring this dream of designing our own high quality animals from a dream to a reality! So check out the video! Enjoy!
