We are thrilled to have raised what we set out to – and more, $3,728 more to be exact!
A big Thank You to our 321 generous donors. And a special thanks to the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for giving us the support we needed to get over the top.
Here’s what Eric Newton, senior adviser to the president at the Knight Foundation said about our campaign: “We’re delighted such a well-regarded journalist is taking the entrepreneurial step of using Kickstarter’s crowd-funding methods to launch an exciting new venture. Like many, she’s worried about the future of news. Like not that many, she’s decided to do something about it.”
Now we’re looking forward to producing our Local Global Mashup Show. Watch this space for details on when and how you’ll be able to tune in.
