The Right Brain Initiative


Woohoo, we did it

November 19th, 2013 by Right Brain Team


After a nail-biting 36-day Kickstarter campaign, Brain Food will make its way to the creative, young minds of the world, all thanks to YOU. In total, we narrowly exceeded our goal to raise an astounding $7,910 from 179 backers!

We were amazed by the enthusiasm and support for this project. Every tweet you made or friend, colleague, acquaintance and stranger you told about Brain Food, made all the difference.  Seriously.  And a  special thank you to advocates at NORTHSandstromFilter and The New Group, for giving at the business level. We have been working closely with AIGA Portland’s Design for Good chapter for nearly three years to bring to life, so making it to this stage feels particularly sweet.

The next step is to put the finishing touches on the decks, so they are shiny and beautiful before we set them free. Those who backed at the $100 level, we will be in touch soon to get your custom portrait started. And for our $25 backers, get your wrapping paper ready because your Brain Food decks will be on their way shortly.

In fact, here is a list of ALL of our backers, who—much to our delight and surprise—come from Portland and Plano, Pittsburgh and  Phoenix, Jacksonville, Omaha, Charlotte, Honolulu, D.C., and even Melbourne, Australia. Thank you, thank you, merci, gracias and danke!
