KIckstarter Project ending soon

As many of you already know, I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money to purchase a critical piece of equipment, that would allow the production of my vegan confections to increase dramatically.

At this moment my production is very limited as it is my time. working my day job, I have hard time, with two growing boys as well, to make full scale production efficiently with no equipment, everything is made by hands, mine.

In order to create more business account, with larger stores nationwide, I need to expedite my production, make it more efficient and consistent. That is the reason why I have been waiting on picking up more accounts, if I can't deliver orders, it is not a good image for the business.

I am too small for banks to consider me, I also asked for too little, since apparently banks would have to pay the same fees for a $250.000 or a $25.000 loan, they don't make money with small loans, so they don't bother.

Kickstarter offer the opportunity to small business like mine, to find the funds they need through patronage and sales. There are rewards (pledges $15.00 and up) offered for the backers that decide to pledge for the project. It gives the chance to anyone that love the products (or ideas) to become, in a way, part of the business success, huge part actually.

I wont be able to make it without the people that loves me and my products, I wont be here if it wasn't for them. They are the one that makes it all worth it :-)

Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if I don't reach my initial goal, I wont receive any of the pledges, the backers will not be charged.

I guess what I am asking is for a little help to make this happen, this has been my dream since I can remember, I have been forced to wait for personal reasons, for the past 6 years, but I am ready now to take the leap, I need to, this is who I am am and I want to keep expressing myself through confections that are made with love, in every sense of the way.

Even small pledges can make the difference, please consider help my business make it to the next level.
