I’m absolutely devastated. Kickstarter has taken down our campaign and we have lost everything. All of the pledges and rewards connected to our shop have vanished and Kickstarter has returned them to everyone who took part.
The reason for this is that a disgruntled viewer reported us, and as we weren’t clear in our description that we are filming a restoration documentary and wanted to get everyone involved in the project as a creative business going forward, Kickstarter took it down. This is irreversible.
I chose Kickstarter because it was for Creative Projects who wanted to go forward as businesses to create something special. I also liked that I could link my shop to every pledge so it in turn became a purchase with the shop.
But it all has fallen around my ears again.
I am sitting here at the table, desperately connected to wifi and trying to figure out how I can get around this. How can I get Papageno to succeed? My heart feels crushed and I have no idea what to do.
So this is my last stand. My last effort.
I am asking everyone who made a pledge through Kickstarter for a reward, to please go to my shop at https://www.earlewrites.com/shop to buy whatever it is you wish. I don’t think we will be able to raise the £7000 that we had managed, but my heart tells me that I have enough in me to try again.
I’m so shocked by what has happened that I feel numb. Just when I feel like everything could be ok and there is some light for me, things turn dark once again. I have two weeks to make this a reality.
This is our last stand.
Let’s do it together.
P.S- Edited an hour later- I started another crowdfunder if you wanted to see her progress. Fingers crossed this one works! https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/savepapageno-1
All of my love to you. x
