A month ago I did a post about my buddy Matthew Jordan Smith and his Future Presidents project. It was the day it all launched on Kickstarter and he was looking to raise $30,000 to fund the project. Well, he made it, but now with less than 30 hours left, we want to help him exceed the goal, but you need to understand why.
Exceeding the goal on a project like this doesn't mean any profitability for the author. What it does mean is the project has a chance to expand its reach. Stronger funding means Matthew has the ability to reach more children, more families and create a stronger project.
If you're not familiar with it, here's the press release that dropped a few weeks ago.
So, this morning's post is a call to action and we're down to the wire. You can guess how many projects over the years I've been involved in, but none with the potential to inspire and involve so many children and families. Matthew's got until the end of the day Sunday - whatever you can do is going to be so appreciated and give you your own little piece of a project destined to be historical.
Thanks for your support!
