It didn’t even need to come down to the final hour.
In just over two weeks you made it happen. Funding target met. $76k raised.
In the last 3 days of the Unsplash Book campaign, you helped push things beyond where we ever thought we could get, contributing an additional $18k to reach a final, outrageous total of $106,705.
When we started this campaign with a big goose egg staring us in the face, we had no idea how things would turn out.
$75k looked like a long way away and we were scared.
Seeing your support during this campaign has given us confidence and we couldn’t be happier with how things have turned out.
We are grateful. And all we can say is thank you. Plenty of thank-yous:
You. For believing in and backing this project.
