We broke 25% on day seven! I’m both thrilled and focused on the other 75%.
Phil said, “Be sure everyone knows that on Kickstarter you don’t get a dime unless you hit your goal.”
So now you know. Onward!
No super soft and durable Urban Pajama Pants? No bike-friendly version with clever reflective roll-up cuffs? No work for local sewers? It’s just too terrible to think about.
If you know anyone who would be interested in supporting YamStreet and our “Root to a Better World,” please take a minute right now to reach out to them. Or send me a message, and I’ll reach out.
And if all this sounds too serious … our surreal flying yam is meant to lighten the mood.
Support from friends is blossoming in new ways on day six.
Thanks to Susan for posting a note on the SF Bicycle Coalition’s massively “liked” Facebook page and sending a message out to some of the same folks via LinkedIn. Susan understood the value of our bike-friendly Urban Pajama Pants to these urban change-makers.
Minutes later, Beth from Sunday Streets said she would do a couple blasts out to their robust list. I’ve been promoting Sunday Streets in Bayview for years on Quesada Gardens’ blog and Bayview Footprints Local News, and sent Beth a link to that content. She saw a “Throw-Back Thursday” opportunity in it.
Yay Beth and Susan!
Day five on Kickstarter, and email is new again.
I remember my friend Ed wearing a T-shirt saying “I’m a librarian. I have email.” Email was that big a deal circa 1980-something. (Sorry, Ed … of course you were an infant at the time)
I’m back, burning up my email system, spreading the word about YamStreet’s Kickstarter campaign and Urban Pajama Pants. I have plenty of friends who aren’t on Facebook or other social networks, and I want to be sure they know about the campaign early on.
The replies are making my day. Some folks I haven’t seen in ages remember when they first heard me talking about the “yam biz idea.” And suddenly we are reconnected, catching up on our lives, scheduling a lunch date…. Beautiful!
