SAVE THEIR STORIES KICKSTARTER UPDATE: ALL OR NOTHING
We’re halfway through our Kickstarter campaign to Save Their Stories: cataloging and publishing online more than 200 diaries of Holocaust victims and survivors. I’ve seen your heartfelt comments, tweets, and posts about our project, and I’m so inspired by the outpouring of support we’ve received already—so far over 3,396 people have come together to make sure these important accounts of the Holocaust are brought to the public. But this is all or nothing—if we don’t meet our goal, we don’t get any funding at all. And there are just two weeks left!
I’m excited to share that at 2 p.m. ET today, I will be giving a live video presentation about this project that you can watch from the Kickstarter Project Page
I’ll also be answering your questions about the project and our work. Be sure to let your friends know—getting the word out is critical to meeting our goal! We can only do this together. Please back this project today with whatever amount you can chip in—every pledge makes a difference. Plus, when you support the project, you can choose from rewards exclusive to this Kickstarter, like a Save Their Stories t-shirt, tote bag, poster, limited-edition watercolor print painted by Holocaust survivor Simon Jeruchim, behind-the-scenes experiences, and so much more.
Check out the Kickstarter Project Page for more details about the meaningful difference you’ll make—and the rewards available exclusively to project backers. Some of these have run out already, so don’t delay!
I hope you’ll join us and help Save Their Stories today.
Curator, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
