Hi, our first weekend on Kickstarter was amazing!
Fatventure Mag launched on Kickstarter on Friday, May 4 at 9 a.m, and we raised $1,000 in one day. That’s incredible! Over the weekend, we received $2,537 in funding from 59 backers. We are so, so grateful for all of the support, and we can’t wait to see what the next 27 days have in store!
We teased everyone with a few early sneak peeks at Kickstarter perks, but now all of our perks have been revealed and you can pledge now to get a Fatventure temporary tattoo or an art print from one of our amazing contributors, like this one:

If we can get $6k toward our funding goal, we’ll reveal the cover of Fatventure Mag Vol. 1, designed and illustrated by the incredible Rose M. Honeyboy. We are absolutely in love with it and we can’t wait to share it with you, so let’s get this project funded!
Here’s what people are saying about Fatventure Mag:

We have four weeks to fund our first volume, and we have so much faith that we can make this happen. Help us bring Fatventure Mag into the world — promote our Kickstarter on Twitter and Instagram, and tell your friends. Share photos of yourself being fat in the wild on social media using #Fatventurers or #FatventureMag for a chance to be featured on our feeds!

One last thing: today, we have a double birthday on the Fatventure team! If you have a minute to send co-creator Samantha Puc and contributing writer Kathryn Kania some good vibes today, they’d appreciate it! They’ve each asked for Kickstarter contributions for their birthdays… Just saying. 😉
