Extra! Extra! Read all about it! You heard it here first, folks (unless you’re a Cupanion groupie and already knew…awkward) – we have officially launched our first Kickstarter campaign!
We have been doing our best to hold our tongues and keep this exciting announcement under wraps, however the time has come that we can share it with the world. The Cupanion team has been giving 100% around the clock to put our campaign into action and have finally hit the launch button.
If you have never heard of Kickstarter, then there is a very good chance that you live under a rock (or some sort of pre-social media era). Here is the gist – Kickstarter is an online funding platform for creative projects across numerous categories. The ultimate goal of the crowdfunding platform is to help smaller companies generate and bring creative projects to life.
They want to bring projects to life…we want to bring water to life…it just seems like a match made in heaven, right?
We know, we know, you are probably thinking, “Hey Cupanion…aren’t you already the Superman of Sustainability? Hulk of Humanity? Green Lantern of Green Love?” The answer to this is yes, however even superhero’s need assistance from their trusty sidekick from time to time.
That’s where you come in. We want to take our mission to new heights with the funding raised by this campaign, and we need contributors to make this a true slam dunk. We are trying to raise $15,000 in just 30 days, and we need all the Cupanion Champion’s that we can get on our side to make this dream a reality. Whether it’s backing us financially or just spreading the word, every little bit counts!
Now, your next question may be, “Well Cupanion…what am I going to get out of it? Aside from the feel good vibes of supporting an initiative that is trying to end the water crisis and ban single-use plastics for a cleaner, thriving world?”
Well, lucky for you and your first world need for tangible rewards, we’ve got you covered! We are excited to finally introduce you to the newest addition of the Cupanion family. Our new ground-breaking bottle is simple, smart, super functional, and made in the US of A. This bottle helps you make an impact by connecting with our new Fill It Forward app. Soon, you can be a mean, green, giving machine (like the Hulk, but better) and save two pounds of plastic from our oceans each year while providing clean water for all.
Overwhelmed yet? Don’t worry, you have time to collect yourself, as this bottle will not be available to the public until this Fall. However, we need your help to make this happen. We truly cannot reach our target without you!
The clock is ticking. The villains of our story (those single-use sinners) are trying to take over. Together, we can save the world, one cup at a time.
