15,000 stars and counting!

Check out our Kickstarter here:

12 months ago, we started this project with the mission to inspire the next generation of creators. Thanks to you and our 200+ backers, we’ve hit a giant milestone to make this mission a reality.

We hit $15,000, but we’re just getting started!

First and foremost, hitting this milestone means all of our backers will receive their hardcover books before Christmas day. I hope Santa Clause is ready to carry all those heavy books!

In addition, hitting this milestone means we’ve unlocked our first stretch goal.

New stretch goal: $20,000 = we will donate Star Struck to 200 classrooms

New stretch goal of $20,000

We’ve found that educators love reading Star Struck out loud to their students. If we hit $20,000 in funding, then we’ll donate Star Struck hardcover books to 200 classrooms.

How we’ll choose the classrooms: we’ll create a page on our website that allows educators to request a hardcover copy of the book (absolutely free of charge to them of course).

Please help us donate our book to 200 classrooms!

Thank you very much,
