SPOKANE, Wash.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Today, teen inventor Brooke Martin issued a plea to the general public to financially support her Kickstarter fundraising campaign for iCPooch (www.icpooch.com) by pledging $5 - $25 or more to reach her October 1 goal of $70K. iCPooch is an internet enabled device that allows you to video chat with your dog and deliver a treat from anywhere with your tablet, smartphone, or computer. To date, Martin has raised a little over $21,000 of her $70,000 goal with her October 1st deadline only two weeks away.
“I’m hoping that people will rally in the next two weeks by supporting my goal of getting iCPooch into retail stores. Every pledge dollar will help.”
“The deadline is just two weeks away. iCPooch has seen tremendous and deeply appreciated support by Kickstarter investors, and we need your continued financial support today,” said Martin. “I’m hoping that people will rally in the next two weeks by supporting my goal of getting iCPooch into retail stores. Every pledge dollar will help.”
To watch Martin’s video, and to see the different award levels available to contributors, visit the Kickstarter campaign at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/icpooch/icpooch-internet-enabled-pet-treat-delivery-system. For example, a minimum $5 pledge to iCPooch’s Kickstarter campaign, iCPooch will add the donor’s pet’s name to its “Founding Pet” page on iCPooch.com. iCPooch plans to use the $70,000 for the custom tooling necessary to mass produce iCPooch at a reasonable cost that can be passed on to the consumer.
Kickstarter.com is an online crowd-funding platform that brings together entrepreneurs and supporters, providing important capital to assist in launching entrepreneurial ventures. Brooke will only receive the funds pledged to her fundraising effort if she raises the entire $70,000. If the campaign doesn’t raise the $70,000, iCPooch receives none of the funds pledged.
