My daughter was born in 2009. And Kickstarter was born the same year. Coincidence? I think not. I think they were trying to jack me on this whole thing, because if they have started Kickstarter just a little bit earlier, I could have raised some serious coin for this adventure.
Kiskstarter is a site that let’s anyone raise money for their own creative projects. According to the web site more than 4.1 million people have pledged over $631 million, funding more than 42,000 creative projects. And given that IVF treatment costs about half of that amount or maybe a little bit less, I definitely would have launched a Kickstarter project for this whole deal. You would have kicked in $25 to get this return of investment, wouldn’t you?
Ask yourself, is there anyone out there who wouldn’t have wanted me to reproduce? Is there anyone who would have tried to prevent this kind of awesomeness from happening? Let’s be honest, yes there is. But we did it anyway. And it would have been great to crowdsource the whole thing. And maybe we would have let you pick the sperm donor, too. But THAT might have been going a little too far.
