Pushing Kickstarter & Just Missing Out On #VOOM2016

As many of you are already aware, BODO entered the #VOOM competition at position 683 and after a strong surge of support, we made it into position 97 when the voting ended on the 23rd May 2016. Sadly, that was not quite good enough to make it in to the final 80 and the next stage of the competition, but I was so overwhelmed by the messages of support, the votes and the shares that we received during our push to succeed.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who took the time to vote for BODO for all their incredible effort and support. It was truly humbling to see how many people believe in BODO and want to see us succeed. To all those who voted for us and shared our posts to help us spread the word, I will be eternally thankful and despite the fact that we did not reach the final, your confidence in BODO has only encouraged us to increase our will to succeed! We were up against some amazing businesses and entrepreneurs and I wish those through to the final, the best of luck in the competition.
It was an incredible thing to be a part of and I am grateful for the opportunity to have been involved and for the wisdoms I have picked up along the way!BODO Infographic Sandal description
Though I feel as though I have asked a lot of you already, I need to ask people for their help once again as our need for your support is essential to our crowdfunding campaign. On the 17th May 2016, I set up a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise money for BODO Footwear (BuyOneDonateOne) although it’s been a challenge; we have been especially motivated by the excitement of knowing that BODO Footwear is such a worthy cause.
I am asking anyone out there who reads this blog to consider pledging towards this campaign. Our ambitious goal to complete is, to raise £11,000 in funds via Kickstarter to Launch BODO Footwear, as many of you know, this is a personal cause for me.
We have been in set up for approximately 4 years which is why your help and support will mean so much – pledges for a pair of BODO Sandals are £40.00 which will also generate a donation pair to a person in need, however you can pledge as little as £1.00
One day we will have sandals made from recycled vehicle tyres on the feet of every person in need, but until then please join me in supporting this very important cause.
