Hi everyone,

Thanks again to you all for your amazing support. All new backers have been added to the backer list on our website (should you have any objection to this, please let me know via message and I’ll be happy to remove you from the list).

We still need your help to reach our funding goal. If you can, please consider:

  • Twitter: Retweeting our tweets (from @projhermes) and tweeting about us to others
  • Word of Mouth: Tell your friends, family, colleagues and anybody you may know about our mission, how amazing we are(!) and how they can send their own message or item to near space
  • Organisation Sponsorship: If you know a group, organisation or company that would be interested in sponsoring our amazing project in return for a great day out to the launch, amazing advertising benefits and much, much more, please let us (and them) know!
  • E-Mail: If possible, we’d love our fantastic backers to send around some e-mails to people they know. We’ve included a sample suggestion below that you may want to use.


Hi there,

Check out this amazing 15 year old’s project on Kickstarter – they want to launch your messages and items into space! I’m excited to help make the mission happen, and I was wondering if you would too. Don’t be scared by Kickstarter, it’s the world’s most popular crowdfunding platform (and all payments are secured by Swift/Amazon).

Even better – a randomly selected backer will win a free HD action camera that’s been to space and back! You can check out the project (and cool video) here: http://kck.st/1M1TldL

Also, you can help even more by sending this to your friends and retweeting them @projhermes.

Thanks so much.


Thanks guys,
