Bake Sale Goal #1: Shattered

Posted by Kim on August 8, 2019, 5:12 pm

4 days into the bake sale, and we blew past our $5k goal!!!!

The final contribution that pushed us over the top
Was a phoenix
That someone bought
FOR ME

I am having trouble thinking of anything more wholesome. <3 <3 <3

So, here's the plan from here:

Our second goal will be $10,000.

The 10k goal will allow me to take all 100 days off of work to focus solely on the RPR Rebuild, and takes that audacious goal from the realm of "maybe possible" to complete the project in that accelerated timeframe to "might even be likely."


I was honestly a little afraid and embarrassed to set such a high goal, but this community has shown how supportive and loving it really is. And I thought I was motivated to work my butt off before!

Sneak previews are on their way in the next few days, and I'll be hosting office hours on the 16th and 17th to chat with you all about the rebuild in real time.

I'm also looking into getting some new backer rewards for you amazing heroes -- I honestly was not expecting to need to find more rewards so fast! RPR laptop stickers? Gold plated swords? New templates? WE'LL SEE! ;)

Go RPR! I plan on buying a sundae and some more goodies as soon as I get paid again on the 16th! So great to be able to give back to a website that has provided me with countless hours of entertainment.

Honestly its just a testament to how much of a fantastic support network roleplayers can be and how much we all value what Kim has done here for us, giving us a safe enviroment to roleplay together on a format made just for that. I am so excited to see the new changes but more excited to be able to proudly display that i an part of this community.

*pops open a masaive bottle of sparkling grape juice for everyone* Congratulations, Kim! I'm so excited and amazed that we reached our goal in 4 days! RPR is incredible, and I'm so glad to be a part of this amazing community!

Lucky for me, next week starts my weekly blowout of tossing all of my allowance to RPR until the sale is over! We'll reach that 10k goal, I just know it! <3
