Kickstarter Project Update!

Jewel RiverKickstarter Project Update - Only 22 Days Left! -

   Well our Kickstarter Project has been live for 8 days now! Hopefully, most of you have had the chance to see the project by now (if not, click here!) Some of you may still have some questions like..."Why are they doing this project, aren't they killin' it and rolling in the dough?" or "What the heck is Kickstarter?" or maybe "Why do they need my money?" , and you might even be thinking..."Well, they'll get close enough and that will be better than nothing!"

     1. While we are having fun, and we have grown tremendously in the last six years...we are definitely not "killin' it", and the only thing we are rolling in is water because it has rained so much here in North Carolina!
     2. Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform full of creative, ambitious and innovative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others (people like you!)
     3. We need your money to help speed up the process of getting our ideas out of our heads and into your hands! Self-funding a small business is a slow, tedious process that could use a little kick-start in the pants!
     4. Each project that is allowed (very difficult to even be accepted as a project...) on Kickstarter is "all-or-nothing". This means that if the funding goal listed within each project is not met, then none of the backer pledges will reach the project creator. This also means a lot of sweaty days for the creator! (...we make great soap, so it's ok)

   Hopefully this clarifies any questions you may have had concerning our project. We really do need a little help from each of you! One of our Facebook customers stated that each of our 840+ likers would give about $12, we would be in the green! It doesn't take a lot to make a huge difference in Harmony Acres Soap Co.!
