The Sixth Most Funded Kickstarter Campaign Winding Down July 18, 2019

For a long time I had never been the first to back a Kickstarter campaign. One day I noticed a Facebook post that was several hours old announcing a new Kickstarter campaign. When I checked on it, the number of backers was 0, as in none. So, I made a very small pledge. Imagine my surprise when shortly afterwards Kickstarter sent me a note that I was now a First Backer.  I had not heard of this category before. Basically, it means they send me occasional, weekly in general, e-mails as a First Backer that non-First Backers don’t get.

Today I got an e-mail as a First Backer about the 6th Most Funded Kickstarter – was ending soon; it ends Thursday, July 18 2019 7:00 PM CDT. Kicktraq: Here are the details: $10,590,823 pledged of $500,000 goal; 23,650 backers.

By 6th most funded, I am guessing by the amount over the campaign goal as this link,, doesn’t list it, but it should be around #42 on that list as of its present pledge level. It’s also not listed at, but it would be in 6th place on that list. Most likely it hasn’t been added either place on Wikipedia yet.
