I'm Chelsea, relocated from Southern Cali to Oregon.
Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding, meaning that if the goal is not met, then no funding is awarded; more importantly, no backers are charged.
With only a week left to go and at 18%, I realized that it was unlikely to reach my goal, so I cancelled it and started an IndieGoGo Campaign instead.
With IndieGoGo’s flexible funding system, funding is awarded even if the goal is not met, which in this case, means that the backers will still have the opportunity to get their prizes (and I’ll still be able to receive a portion of the funding!)
I am using my own “life’s savings” to go on this adventure, but the IndieGoGo will allow me to bring danielbrucelee along, my adventure partner, manager, talent, assistant photographer, assistant producer, etc. Basically… a trip like this is difficult to undertake alone!
And besides, you guys don’t want to see a million selfies of me from around the world!
