Halfway to Getting Dressed
40 MONTHS AGO
Just 48 hours in, and we are halfway to dressing Joseph! It's thanks to you, and we are very, very grateful.
Someone asked us: "You've reached $5,000 - doesn't that mean you have hit your target, since your matched backers are donating $5,000?". Great question.
How it works is our backers match your contributions dollar-for-dollar, so your $10 becomes $20 instantly. It's fun to watch the funds stack up like this. But it means we still have $2,500 to go (which will be matched dollar-for-dollar).
We are delighted that you share our excitement for Joseph Gets Dressed. We'd love you to share your excitement with any friends whom you think might want to help, too.
Someone else asked: "Do you have a Stretch Goal?". It's not really that sort of crowd-funding campaign. However, if we do manage to raise more than what we are asking, we will use it to create extra features for a website, where kids (of all ages!) can go to discover more details about Joseph's machine, from the horse's mouth.
Joseph will reveal some behind-the-scenes secrets, and talk about the challenges and mistakes in his work.
Mistakes. One of our favourite aspects of filming Joseph Gets Dressed has been the process of watching Joseph make mistake after mistake, failing, starting again, failing some more, and, yes, failing even more, until he eventually gets it right.
Failure is an important part of good science. There's something very humbling about being privy to this process. A reminder that good things take time; a testament to the art of paying attention.
We have more cool project updates to come. Stay tuned!
