Kickstarter Campaign

Thank you for the amazing Kickstarter Support!

Berd Bears launched on Kickstarter on May 8, 2012. When we closed our project on July 2, 2012, we finished as the most successfully funded crafts project in Kickstarter history! We couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks to all of our amazing backers, to the Jinishian Foundation for supporting the launch, and to Gor and Manana Films for producing the launch video.

The People Who Made It All Happen:
Our Amazing Backers!

189 backers from all corners of the world – Europe, Asia, North America, Australia – all came together to become the Berd Bears family. We thank you for giving us the “Kickstart” we needed to grow and continue to empower the women of Berd to continue their beautiful craft.
