Gold confetti

Kickstarter success!

We did it, thanks to you

Thanks to a solid crew of backers, we reached our funding goal to pay the talented writers, storytellers, photographers, filmmakers, and other creatives who contributed their voices to the New Orleans issue.

Know that as a backer you are instrumental in the production of a truly unique and meaningful online platform for the voices of this world. This is more than a community of readers that you’ve joined; it is a movement. One built of curiosity, compassion, and a thirst for connection.

Missed the Kickstarter, but still want to see what we’re about?

A gleeful shout-out to our 68 backers — we love you
