A friend recently introduced me to this really amazing website called “Kickstarter.” Kickstarter essentially is a place to raise funds for creative projects. Case in point, my friend used Kickstarter as a place to raise money for an independent animated film she is making called “One Per Person.” She recommended the site to me since she knows I would love to start my own business and also as a place to possibly raise capital for my jam making. It’s really an amazing place to reach out and help the “little guy.”
Kickstarter is also one of those websites to get lost in. It has everything from art, music, film to food! Yes you got it food! It is so inspiring and if you need to kick (pun intended) your creative juices into high gear this place will do it! It’s refreshing to see people passionate about the projects and work they are creating.
During my perusing of Kickstarter, I came across a company called “Nepali Tea Traders.” After reading about the company and their intentions I immediately sponsored them. In return for my contribution I was rewarded with the most delicious tea. I selected a set of black tea. The first a Himalayan Masala black tea. Incredibly tasty with a nice hint of black pepper and spices. I’ve been partaking each morning with just a splash of milk. The second is the Shangri-La Classic Organic Black Tea, this one I have yet to try but look forward to a cup when I get to work:) I cannot wait to order more varieties and support a business that stands for so much more than the bottom line.
If you haven’t already please check it out. It feels good to reach out to a small business and help support a dream!
