It’s time for some stretch goals! For those newer to Kickstarter, stretch goals are additional cool things I’m going to accomplish if more funds are raised, as well as additional cool rewards you can earn for being a backer.
STRETCH GOAL #1 = $15,000
If we hit $15,000 overall funding, I will use additional funds to create a dedicated project website at AmericaAtTheSeams.com. I already own the domain and would hire an awesome web developer to give this project a top notch online presence where I will post new pictures, blog posts, and state artwork pictures and stories as they become available. The site would link to all social media platforms to give you the opportunity to share updates to all the baseball fans in your life. Distinguished and Corporate Sponsors would have a clear branding presence on this site with links to their own sites. PLUS….ALL project backers will be included on a “Wall of Fame” page where you are recognized by name (along with where you are from). You can include a short phrase or saying with your name to pay tribute to someone in your life or to give as a gift.
In addition, I’ll do a random drawing for a chance to win the original artwork being used to create the project t-shirt – an American flag made from actual used baseballs shaped into the outline of the US Map. Only one of these exists! Letter of Authenticity will be included. Drawing will be done by a random number generator by Backer number. Family members excluded from this perk.
STRETCH GOAL #2 = $20,000
If we hit $20,000 overall funding, I will hire a professional cinematographer to create “My Story” videos for 2 state stories. Video would be similar to my own video as seen in this Kickstarter and would tie in that person’s story to the overall project. I will create a NEW project backer reward to give persons the opportunity to sponsor a video and have their name, brand/logo/website included in the credits.
Keep spreading the word! We still have 2 weeks to go!
