I love Kickstarter
I have decided that I have not funded enough programs on Kickstarter. I am making a commitment to fund more for several reasons. First of all being able to give towards a project just feels great. Most of the time I do not care so much about getting the awards that are available but sometimes I do opt in.
I am not sure how this project caught my eye ( I think Cool Hunting) but I funded the Parke New York denim project awhile back. It is an online denim brand based in downtown New York using premiere denim to make their jeans. It took awhile to get the jeans and Parke continued to keep me in the loop. I just got my jeans. I have tried on a handful of jeans at a store and walked away empty handed. It is not always easy to find the jeans that work for your body. The Parke jeans are amazing. I love them. So glad that I found them and supported their efforts on Kickstarter. I just ordered another pair for Fred.
My daughter Jessica just did a Kickstarter project. Watching her go through the process with her friends was great. What should the awards be for different levels of funding, how should we tell our story from video to writing, how much money do we need to get this done, how do we promote this to our friends and family to insure that it gets funded. It is an art.
Kickstarter truly started a revolution when it comes to the engaging the crowd. It is just an awesome company.
