Alright, we've been approved to launch our Kickstarter account for Upshift, what does this mean? Most questions can be answered once you visit the sight, but in a nutshell it means we are reaching out to friends, family, acquaintances, and even strangers to raise the $4000 needed for the expansion of the online business model. We have until December 6th to raise it, and it's all or nothing. People can give any amount.
What Dustin and I are asking is that our story gets told and that the UpShift Swap Shop business model of sustainability is understood so that people want to be invested in the future of our amazing venture. If you're curious about our backstory, it's all in the Kickstarter or on our blog. Additionally, it's worth mentioning that we can exceed the amount which will help the business grow even faster.
Why would we need funding to help the online business grow even though the site is up and running and currently taking orders? We need to purchase all the equipment for shipping and the equipment for cataloging our inventory. We currently have a system, but it's small and we need to grow!
You can help us by promoting our Kickstarter on all social media, especially during the holiday season! Dustin and I are saying thank you in advance because I know this is a busy time of year and everyone has already done so much to help and support us. It's humbling to ask for so much help, but know that every single day I'm thankful for all the people in my life both near and far and all the help and encouragement that you've offered.
If you need to know more about our business and about Dustin and I visit the history of Upshift on this site or the Kickstarter site, and feel free to send friends there too so they understand our history and swap system.
Peace, love, and fashion to all you beautiful people!
