Day 2 fundraising challenge

So as of 10 a.m. today, the Kickstarter had raised $403, which is a little over 6% of the goal for the magazine I am trying to start. Thanks to everyone who contributed so far! I am stoked! We had a $100 pledge for one of the slots to have a character in the magazine named after the backer, which is great! There are still three more slots available for that.

But I am here to talk about the challenge. I’d like to hit $750 (11.5%) by tomorrow at noon, which will be the end of the first 48 hours of the Kickstarter. So if we hit that goal, since this is a project about stories, I’ll write up the story of my misadventure with a weapon in Philadelphia’s City Hall, and I’ll post it on the updates page on the Kickstarter. It’s a pretty good story. And it is true. Most of my good ones are. It’s a hazard of working in journalism. If this goes well, I have plenty of others I can use for future challenges!

If you want to pledge you can do so here.

Thanks again to our first backers, and to everyone for reading!
