Kickstarter Honor Roll & Thanks

Check it out! From every corner of the world, my friends and family have come together to help make my dream of writing a book come true!

From my friend Laura, who I originally met in South Africa and is now living in Trinidad, to my friend Annie, who I met in Bolivia and now lives in Cambodia, to my Irish lassies Brid & Paula, who I met in Ethiopia – the global support is unbelievable!

Please watch this video where I share my deepest thanks:

While not everyone was in a position to give a cash donation, I certainly appreciate their well wishes and kind words. Here’re a few nice sentiments to share:

Kilimanjaro Climbing“My dream is an Erin Michelson junket – the sites you’ve seen are much more interesting and spiritually fulfilling than Super Bowls, Final Fours, trade shows and board meetings!” —  Leonard, first $1 donor 4 years ago

“Congrats! I am so excited about our book! I get your emails and FB updates and love reading about your trips. I think what you do is amazing…” —  Karen, Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing buddy

“We are all so proud of your accomplishments. You go girl. I pray that your book is a huge success. You certainly are a HUGE success with your life.” —  Elaine, family friend in Florida

As you know, the campaign was a complete success, bringing in:

  • Total donations: $6,773
  • Percentage of project funded:  112%
  • Average donation: $89.19
  • Number of donors: 76
