Along with our friends at M+R Strategic Services, we developed a visual approach intended to quickly create understanding and articulate the urgency of USHMM's work. The campaign reached over $30,000 at launch, was featured as a "project we love" by the Kickstarter team, and surpassed their $250,000 funding goal early. The campaign ultimately reached $315,882, or 126% of their goal.
