Well done to all those OnTheWight readers who responded to our feature on Saturday to help Isle of Wight artist Zoe Sadler reach her Kickstarter goal of £4,000 in order to produce a children’s book to accompany her Quay Arts exhibition later this year.
Zoe got in touch with us on Monday morning to let us know that a whopping 33% of pledges were referred from OnTheWight. At the time of publishing our feature Zoe had attracted £2,712 of pledges, today it stands at over £5,000.
“I just wanted to thank you for your fantastic article – it went down a storm and definitely got me to my target amount! It runs for another five days so hopefully I can reach some more goals!”
Now that Zoe has smashed her first target, she’s hoping Islander will help her reach some others.
Thanks to all my wonderful backers I have reached my initial target and I can show my appreciation by offering a few bonus rewards if I reach further targets…
*£6000* Postcard Pack – A pack of four postcards featuring artwork from the book for all backers who have pledged £20 or above.
*£7000* Stickers – Four different stickers featuring artwork from the book for all backers who have pledged £20 or above. My digital backers of £5 and £10 will receive an additional digital reward- I’m thinking screensaver!
*£8000* One page illustrated manuscript – A separate signed and illustrated A4 copy of the rhyming story from the book for all backers who have pledged £20 or above. My digital backers of £5 and £10 will receive a digital version.
