For one month out of each year, my life resembles an NPR fund drive. Since 2009, a team of volunteers, makers, sponsors, and attendees have helped me bring you the +Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire. In 2010, we started using a +Kickstarter campaign to raise funds so we can cover the costs of putting on the Faire.

This year has been particularly challenging; our Kickstarter campaign has only three days to go, and we still need to raise $1250 (if we don't we won't get funded at all). We haven't had any sponsors step up, so we've added our sponsorship levels as backer awards to hopefully make it easier.

I believe that the Mini Maker Faire is something Rhode Island wants and needs. This is our 8th year (we are one of the first independently-produced Maker Faires), and one challenging year won't put the brakes on this event. But it will make it harder.

Although we sell tickets, we keep the price low (kids 10 and under get in free, too), so it doesn't cover our (+AS220's and my) costs.

If you can, please help. http://kck.st/2a2s0S1

Thank you!
