Donations: 12 - Raised: $675.00
The Montgomery Yo-Yo Company has been a dream for many years. Only recently has that dream been transitioned into a solid goal that can be brought to fruition by manufacturing our first yo-yo, the Burgeon. The Burgeon is a competition grade yo-yo geared towards yo-yoers interested in tech, speed, and slack style tricks. It will be great for freestyle yo-yoing or just casual trick creation.
The reason why we've put together this fundraiser to get the ball rolling is because of the startup costs. Like many of you who have dreamed of owning and running your own company you probably would have started already if you had some funds to do so. We're in the same boat. Regardless of the success of this fundraising campaign the Montgomery Yo-Yo Company will release the Burgeon, but it could be delayed up at 2 months if not more. Your contributions will fast forward the timetable to at the very least have a prototype developed before 2016 concludes.
Currently we need at least $200 to get the CAD files put together, from there we can get a quote on three prototypes, one of which will be giving to a donor selected at random, when we reach our $2,000 goal.
So I can't just ask for a donation and only offer a drawing in return, so I have added some rewards that contributors will get based on suggestions:
Any amount from $1 - $24.99: Receive one entry to be entered into a drawing to win one of the prototypes!
$25 or more: Receive one entry to be entered into a drawing to win one of the prototypes and get a shoutout in the next Living Off Autopilot vlog!
$50 or more: Receive two entries to be entered into a drawing to win one of the prototypes and get a shoutout in the next Living Off Autopilot vlog!
$75 or more: Receive three entries to be entered into a drawing to win one of the prototypes, receive one of the production run Burgeon's, which will retail at $100. As well as the shoutout in the next Living Off Autopilot vlog!
$100 or more: Receive three entries to be entered into a drawing to win one of the prototypes, I will create a new cool yo-yo trick and name it whatever you like (so long as it's family friendly) and then film a tutorial on how to do it, crediting you with naming it and supporting the campaign in the video (Or you can instead challenge me to learn a trick for Let's Play Yo-Yo)! You will also get one of the production run Burgeon's and a Living Off Autopilot vlog shoutout!
For every additional $25 you donate, you will receive more extra entries to win the prototype!
