5 Local Kickstarter Projects You Need To Help Fund!
Crowdfunding website Kickstarter has been around for nearly a decade and brought us popular items such as the Fidget Cube, the popular game Exploding Kittens, and even funded The Veronica Mars Movie. Here are some Maine Kickstarters you can get behind today!
5. Kitty Slippers, Portland, ME
These slippers promise comfort for the wearer and endless fun for your kitty. $25 will help fund the project and get you a pair to keep!
4. Little Old New York (1923), Belgrade, ME
Every year old films are leased into the public domain. This year, Marion Davies' Little Old New York is one of them. For a $25 pledge you can get a copy of this silent film on DVD and if it reaches the stretch goal, also included will be a 12-page booklet on the film!
3. Ambition Beer Mug Club, Wilton, ME
