After much thought and consideration I have decided to end my Kickstarter campaign and switch to using the GoFundMe platform.
Many backers were becoming concerned, as was I, that we would not reach our goal in time. This would have meant getting nothing. Thus, it has become clear that the Kickstarter medium isn’t the right one for our project.
Since the trek in an entire ten months, we can continue to raise funds without worrying about meeting a deadline. I am very confident we can reach the goal via GoFundMe and all donations made will be paid to the project.
If you’ve already made a pledge on Kickstarter, please head over tohttps://www.gofundme.com/trekonthetrail to switch you pledge here. I’ll be in touch directly with each backer today. If you haven’t made a pledge yet, pleasefollow that link and make a contribution today!
Thanks for your understanding and support! You have no idea how much it means to me to have so many amazing supporters!
