First: Thank you. We launched the Making RMNB Last campaign at 10 AM on Monday. By noon we had hit our fundraising goal, and by the end of the work day we had doubled it. As I type this, we’re on the verge of hitting $17,000. To everyone whose donation means that you’ve made RMNB part of your life, thank you for validating all the late hours and thanks for allowing us to do more crazy stuff in the future.
And to everyone who just wanted a t-shirt, that’s cool too.
If you haven’t donated yet, and you want to support RMNB or just get a cool shirt, now is the time. You just got paid, right?
Let me give you an idea of what the funds will make possible. We’re upgrading our desperately outdated hardware. We’re also making progress on our responsive, standards-compliant, super sexy redesigned RMNB site. We can do more podcasts and videos now, and we’ve got the capital to do more weird special projects. Next time we have to get a controversial translation verified by an expensive firm, my dog won’t have to go on the cheap dog food for six months.
The more we raise just means more cool projects we get to do on RMNB.
Ian and I were talking. We decided if we hit $20k, we’re gonna throw a party in Frederick to celebrate with all the donors who can attend. Nothing fancy, just a chance to roll (literally) with our homeys. We’ll keep you posted on that.
There have been a few questions about t-shirts and fulfillment, so lemme address those now.
Let me know if anything is unclear.
Again: thank for making this all worthwhile.
