Our Final IndieGoGo Campaign Fundraising Report

So, here, finally, is the report you've all been waiting for:

Our goal was $4,300. We raised $1,000; just 23% of our goal. We were backed by 13 contributors. 

Our IndieGoGo campaign page was visited by 350 persons over 21 days. 

Roughly 60% of those visits came on Aug. 13 the day after I was on KXRO radio (and after those backers visited our website).
