This past weekend our Kickstarter campaign came to an end. Unfortunately we did not reach our goal. Kickstarter’s all-or-nothing nature means that we will not be receiving any funds (nor will those of you who pledged be charged). We are certainly disappointed that we did not make our funding goal but the Kickstarter campaign was still a success in many ways.
When we purchased our property this past summer we knew that the path ahead would not be easy. When we launched our Kickstarter campaign back in September we were awash in support from our friends and family. Not long after launching we were fortunate enough to get the attention of the Baltimore Sun. The Sun article and our interview with Baltimore Internet Radio were instrumental in helping us reach a wider audience. As Halloween approached we began an intensive on the ground marketing push. Each time we went out in costume we were met with so much enthusiasm. Because of the great press we received many of those we spoke with were already familiar with and excited about our project. As this past weekend approached we knew that we had, however, failed to turn that enthusiasm into Kickstarter pledges.This set back is not our first and is unlikely to be our last. Keeping in mind the many lessons we have learned we are moving forward exploring alternative financing strategies, more energized than ever.
We want to sincerely thank all of you for following our page and spreading the word. A special thank you to those who were able to make a pledge. We hope that we can rely on your continued support in the future. Thank you!
