5 kickstarter campaigns worth supporting

i am a big fan of supporting start-ups & creatives who have incredible ideas to make the world better.
today, i have 5 kickstarter campaigns that need your help!

1) the nourishmat ; a really awesome home gardening project GMO-free seed balls that you plant into a mat. this is such a clever idea! one more reason why i cant wait to have my own garden!
ends july 31st // donate here 

2) yes yes yes!!! 100% film. made in the usa. a documentary!
this is a film about the importance of value & conservation of supporting small farms & businesses. on their page, you can watch a 3 min video ; i suggest you do!
ends TOMORROW // donate here.

3) cutest book idea ever! thunder & lightning ; a story for a stormy night!
seriously, adorable! a story about thunder & lightning ; they were friends that moved away from eachother. so, when they get together, they create a storm of fun.
ends july 5th // donate here.

4) central identity mural project. this project is based here in minneapolis ; the location is actually not too far from our place. i have passed the school quite a few times on my bike! they are looking to raise money to create a huge & beautiful mural on the side of the school. i think having children & local artists participate in projects like this is so powerful! such a great way to create ownership over a space!
ends just 12th // donate here.

5) the people's garden project in louisville, ky! i am such a huge fan of supporting organizations creating 'food change' in this country! louisville is doing great things in food // bike // sustainability culture. i really think they will become the 'portland or minneapolis' of the south in regards to being progressive. this project would create two massive greenhouses to help serve people in louisville.
