The past 24 hours flew by in the blink of an eye from the final preparations of the campaign, launching the project at 12PM EST, and responding to all the warm wishes and support from friends, family, network, and new friends! We were glued to our seats in Edmonton and Montreal, respectively, calling and messaging friends and family for support, but we hit a tipping point in the early afternoon where the campaign took a life of its own as our communities started sharing it out organically without our prompting. It’s hard to convey all of our appreciation for the support we received just 24 hours into our campaign. We only skimmed the surface of the people we know are searching for warm and stylish shearling gloves, but it’s a matter of reaching out to let them know we exist.
This accomplishment is the result of much more than just the work of two people - it is our wool + suede team, friends, family, communities, networks, and the proverbial villages (we are mostly city folk) that raised us. We want to take a moment to recognize and share this victory because it belongs to all of you. We did it: we hit $10,000 in less than 24 hours!We are learning and adjusting as we go.
We received great feedback that we will update in the FAQ ranging from shipping, factory conditions, and logistics questions. We invite you to keep pushing and challenging us to sharpen and hone our project even more. Upwards and ongoing to the $20,000!
All the best,
Josh + Nik
