Hello SMAC! Nation. Huge congratulations on a successful crowdfunding campaign to bring SMAC! Sock Monkeys Against Cancer to life!! We hit our TOTAL goal of $35k. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
Now, you’re probably wondering what the next steps are regarding getting your rewards from the crowdfunding campaign….and then…how and when you can order SMAC! monkeys online!!!
1). Since the campaign just ended (November 30), all the crowdfunding transactions have now been processed by PayPal. However, due to the lag time between the time you pledged and the time the transactions were actually processed, we’re told there are always some “snags” that take place in that some of the transactions can’t be processed. For example, you may have switched your credit card or didn’t actually have the amount you pledged in your account at the time of processing. The Start Some Good platform has sent emails to those whose transactions didn’t go through and offered guidance on how to “re-pledge.” If you received an email regarding this and can’t, or don’t want to, mess with PayPal, you can write a check (info posted below).
2). You will soon be receiving a THANK YOU email that also includes a form that asks a variety of questions, such as, “Which monkey(s) do you want?” “Do you want to keep or give your monkey(s) to someone with cancer?” After you fill out the forms, we can move forward on distributing the rewards!!
3). While working on rewards distribution, we are also working as quickly as possible to get our ecommerce and fulfillment services up and running so that online orders for the SMAC! monkeys can take place. So, please stay tuned. Coming soon. You can also sign up for SMAC! newsletter updates sent directly to your inbox, too.
