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 Keepsakes, LLC, 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!
