For those of you that are unfamiliar with how Kickstarter works I’ll give you a rundown of how to contribute to a campaign.
Kickstarter is for fundraising a set amount of money to help get a new project completed. There are reward levels from which you can choose which items you would like as a reward for your contribution. You are pre-buying things that may not exist yet and making it happen!
Go to Kickstarter.com. You can create a Kickstarter account, or you can contribute as a guest without signing up.
http://bit.ly/TheVeligentKickstarter Click “back this project” and “continue” from there you will be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have a Kickstarter account. Be sure you email address is correct. At the end of a successful campaign, your reward survey will be sent to you at that email address for you to fill out. This will ask you to confirm what items you’ve pledged for. (I always forget what I pledged for, it might be a good idea to write it down)
You will not be charged for your contribution until the end of a campaign, and then only if it reaches the goal amount.
The books I am raising money for will need to be printed after the campaign is over, so there will be a long time between the end of the campaign and the rewards being sent to you. It could be as long as three months. This is how kickstarter works! ( and I’ve waited much longer for some items I’ve backed!)
I will be on the Kickstarter page tomorrow to answer questions and explain things, and things will happen during the campaign. See you tomorrow!
