Founding Donors

In January/February of 2021, we ran our first-ever Kickstarter campaign. While we had an issue in production and a lot of our foundation built out, we didn’t have anything to show for all the work we’d put in aside from a vision and a plan to achieve it.

The individuals below believed in that vision enough to donate generously to our campaign. It’s their faith in what we’re building that helped make our campaign such a resounding success, allowing us to meet our base goal in just five days and finish the campaign at almost 190% funding. 

Thank you for your generosity. We’re so excited to have you by our side.
