With one week left in the Unsplash Book Kickstarter campaign, we’ve surpassed our funding goal by $5,000! But we’re not busting out the high-fives just yet.
The philosophy of this project has always been to celebrate the artists involved and to compensate them as much as possible for the work they’ve freely given up. While our campaign budget was set to allows us to show them a token of gratitude, we think they deserve a bit more than that, don’t you?
Every dollar raised over our funding amount goes directly to the contributors in the book, meaning the more we can raise, and the more books we can sell, the more we’re able to pay everyone involved.
Here’s a look at the specifics of how that works:
With one week to go, we don’t want to hold anything back.
We don’t want to come to the finish line and not feel like we put everything out there.
That’s why we’re aiming for $100,000 as our new personal goal for the campaign.
Lofty? yes! (some might say downright crazy). But we feel like it would be an incredible message to send to the creative community if we hit six figures with this campaign.
But we can’t do it alone. So once again, we’re asking for your help.
Any help, through pledges, promotion, or just plain old good vibes will help us break through the wall and sprint through the finish line.
Thank you all for all of your support so far! We wouldn’t be in this amazing position without all of your help!
