We Did It! The Lingerie Addict Kickstarter Raised $21,430!
28 days after we began our Kickstarter campaign, I am ecstatic to report that The Lingerie Addict Kickstarter not only surpassed its initial goal of $6,000 (which we reached in less than 24 hours!) we also achieved every single stretch goal of the campaign - and there were 4 of them!
It is impossible to describe how blessed and honored I feel that nearly 500 of you believe in The Lingerie Addict and it's mission and me enough to help keep us online and independent for all of 2020. Because of your contributions, my team and I will be able to focus almost exclusively on bringing you amazing content and making some much-needed changes to the site.
Briefly, here's a recap of how TLA will use your funding in the coming weeks and months ahead:
- All columnists will receive raises bringing their rates more inline with what major media publications pay.
- All guest writers will receive increased honorariums.
- The Lingerie Addict will hire an accessibility consultant to help make TLA more accessible for all readers.
- The Lingerie YouTube channel will relaunch with all new videos.
I am 100% committed to every single one of these initiatives, and, because of you, they're all finally possible. While $20,000 isn't very much for the average investor-funded or corporate publication, for a small site like ours, it's everything. It's miracle-making money.
For those of you pledged, I'll begin work on your rewards once Kickstarter has released the campaign funds to me, which should take about two weeks. Several rewards are already in-progress, and I'll be able to send you sneak peeks soon through Kickstarter's messaging platform.
I don't know how many times I can say this, but thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who gave, everyone who shared, and everyone who offered an encouraging word. We are here because of you. We are here for you. And I can't wait to show you what's in store for 2020!
