First target achieved!

Oh my god, you guys.  We had some secret hopes of how much we might be able to raise with the crowdfunding campaign, but we never guessed we’d clear $9,000 and hit our first target in the first day.  It has been so exciting sitting here and obsessively hitting Refresh on the results page.  That may not have been the best use of my time, but how could I not?

Thank you, each and every one of you.

Up until yesterday morning, this was a personal, sort of crazy quest for Sara and me. Even with bills to pay and a signed lease in hand, it didn’t quite feel real.  But not even ten minutes after we announced the campaign yesterday the first order came in, and suddenly we were working for you guys.  It’s awesome.

And now, onward to stretch goals!  Our first, at $15,000, is for upgraded soundproofing in the float rooms.  Medford St is not the busiest street in Somerville, but it does see its share of ambulances and garbage trucks.  Soundproofing is like love – you can never have too much.

Have your friends bought their float time yet?  Help us spread the word!
