Hey all... First time posting here! I just backed the Kickstarter, #89, sweet! I'm looking forward to all the educational goodies, learning from Helen's immense wisdom, and especially deepening in and growing with this great community.

Sometime I'll even attempt to figure out what all these badges and abbreviations mean. 😂

To be funded in less than an hour, we would have to reach our goal by 2:56 - because the official kickstarter start time was 1:57.

I had to go poke around on kickstarter a bit ...  I did see us on the film page - just not as high up.
