Kickstarter Campaign Update #2

First, THANK YOU to everyone who has already backed this campaign and believes in Hockey Hardware. You are the fuel that powers us and motivates us every day to work hard towards achieving success.

So far, the campaign is 21% funded with 12 days to go until our all-or-nothing deadline to raise $125K by 7pm ET on Sunday, February 18, 2024.

A key part of our campaign strategy last week was to use the NHL All-Star Week in Toronto as an opportunity to showcase Hockey Hardware to as many people as possible in the hockey industry. Check out the highlights below from the past two weeks to see who we've encountered and who now knows about Hockey Hardware.

Looking ahead at the 12 days remaining in this campaign, we are pivoting our focus to bring in more pledges. This will be critical to Hockey Hardware's Kickstarter success.

If you haven't already backed Hockey Hardware, please make your pledge today! We need your help right away.

If you have already pledged, please ask your family and friends to make a pledge, too. If every backer could get 5 people they know to make a pledge, we could cover a lot of ice quickly and reach that funding goal on time!

Every pledge of any amount helps.

Just like it takes a team effort to win the Stanley Cup - it's going to take a team effort to bring Hockey Hardware to life so we can Bring Home The Hardware!
