    AMAZING crowdfunding success story! 

    news flashYo, Funds Fans!  To demonstrate the power of crowd-funding as a means of raising capital, please observe that today The Oatmeal launched a Kickstarter campaign for a card game called Exploding Kittens.  (Back off PETA… It’s juvenile fun that teaches strategy skills and stress management)

    The initial goal was $10,000 which was met within 8 MINUTES.  At the time of this post, the campaign has achieved OVER $1 MILLION DOLLARS.

    Not. Even. Kidding.

    Moral of the story: Crowd funding can surpass your expectations and possibly make you “Barf up a falling star.” (The Oatmeal, Jan. 19, 2015, 1:30 PM, FB post)
