Confused About Kickstarter? Let Me Help!

Confused About Kickstarter? Let Me Help!

Kickstarter is a platform where Creators can launch new projects. Anyone, anywhere can become a Backer by making a Pledge and getting cool Rewards. You only get your Rewards if the project meets its funding goal. Your credit card is never charged if the goal is not met.

It is not a donation.
It is not tax-deductible.
You are not a traditional investor.
If you like a project and want to help it become a reality, you Back it and Share it with others. If enough people (aka the crowd in crowd-funding) Back a Project it becomes a reality!! Everyone wins!

We have Rewards that range from $25-$10,000 (Seriously, want a Rachel, Alex & Leah concert? That’s $10,000) And you can even Pledge less than $25 and choose no Reward. You could also Pledge $100 and choose no Reward if you wanted:)

We met our Funding Goal on July 27th, but it’s not over!

There are Stretch Goals: each additional $50,000 Pledged above our initial goal will trigger the following exciting things:
1. We WILL make an additional episode! (Episode 1 is done. Episodes 2 & 3 are funded through Kickstarter. Episode 4 is 43% funded right now when it is 100% funded we will make it!)
2. We will open additional Rewards for YOUR CHILD to appear in OUR SHOWS! ($350-500 pledge)
3. We will open another Executive Producer Credit ($1000 pledge)
4. We will open another On-screen Dedication Credit ($1000 pledge)
5. Each Backer who has pledged to Rewards of $25 or more will receive EACH of these new episodes at no additional cost (delivered digitally).

YOU get to say how many shows WE make! <---how cool is that?Realistically this means we could raise $500,000 and for a $35* Pledge (or above) you could receive ALL 12 episodes of Rachel & The Treeschoolers!! Pledge and Share! Pledge and Share!

Here, I’ll walk you through how it all works on this video with my brother, Aaron.

*25 Early Bird pledges are all gone.

  1. i always get emotional at the end of your dvd’s when i first watch them. they have such meaning and touch on the growth of our little ones and how special they are. so it is no surprise to find me crying while i watch you cry over the support you received from us, your fans. what you said about maybe having to find a real job really hit me, b/c you DO have a real job! your job has meant to much to so many and you do it so well! my kids and i adore you, your works, and your family! congratulations!

  2. Is there a way to contribute, even though the official Kick starter campaign is over? I would love to contribute to the production of the remaining episodes. My two year old daughter loves your Signing Time series and I’m really excited about the Tree schoolers program.

  3. You are wonderful,i don’t know a child that just loves your program. My 3 yr. old great niece that I’ve had at 3 days old can’t wait til your program is on every day. She does very well singing thanks to you. God has a very special place for you and yours. I tell everyone about the program. Keep up the good work! You and yours always in my prayers.

  5. Wouldn’t it be great if your shows were in HD 1080p?
    You can always sell it on YouTube Paid Contents. So people can buy the videos on YouTube and also get it in HD 1080p!
    Not getting your videos in HD 1080p is like going back 10 years where most TVs weren’t HD.
    Rachel you need to stay relevant and get with the times!
    If you start selling your content at 1080p. I will be with you until Episode 100!

  6. Hey, I was wondering: I notiecd the my Venture Bros DVDs and Blurays have a different episode order than when they were first aired (at least according to Wikipedia). I was just wondering why? Should I take it that the order on the DVDs/BDs are the preferred order?Thanks!

  7. Thanks for the compliment! I wrote the AVA post – and I also left the post on Joe.My.God about the post you visited for. One of the good things about the AVA site is that you’re free to join yourself and start posting. If you start posting regularly, I’ll promote you to the front page. :) Then you can help shape the discussion.You can also visit my own site, if you’d like. The post you refer to was cross-posted on both sites.
