Its amazing the difference a single backer can make...

While Kickstarter may not show the amounts each backer has pledged, I've been watching your project closely enough to know that the majority of that is from one very generous pledge. :-)

That being said, I think the odds of you reaching your funding level have just shifted considerably in your favour. :-)

I also noticed that one of your backers is a Carolyn Schneyer. I assume this is a family member. If so, I'd recommend that you make sure that the credit card used to make the pledge is not in any way linked to an account in your name. If I understand the Kickstarter FAQ correctly, you may lose your Amazon Payments account if Amazon thinks you are in some way paying yourself.

Yes, indeed, that's one very generous backer. Took me entirely by surprise. Probably shouldn't say more, except that the individual involved is curious about how the whole Kickstarter system works, and wanted to know what would happen if the "thermometer" suddenly hit 50%. But the pledge is a real one.

As for my sister Carolyn, she made her pledge entirely on her own, bless her heart. Since I haven't ever given her my credit card or my Amazon account, I hope/assume that we're okay.
