Tome x Kickstarter: Be A Part of Our Story

Over the last six months, we’ve been perfecting our approach. Our phone app showcases some incredible content, but it’s only the start of what we want to do. And we want to do A LOT more.

That’s why we need you.

To that end, this Kickstarter is our invitation to you to help us fund our third season of content — a season where we’re entering unexplored territory and creating something imaginative. It’s going to be an all out adventure. 

Want to join us on the quest of dangerous and unexplored territory? Want to create something new? You’re in the right place.

Why Kickstarter?

Why Kickstarter? Because you’re here, and you get it. You get the idea of great content tailored to you. You get the idea of partnership. You get that stuffy companies sitting a million miles away making decisions about what they think you like is annoying. 

That’s not us. 

Our videos are personal. They are intimate. They are not repackaged versions of a sermon or story meant for someone else. They are one-on-one conversations with a guide who not only has a story to tell but wisdom to share. 

On Kickstarter, we get direct access to you, the people we’re creating for. Plus, all our friends and family have already downloaded the app. We want more. (And on top of that, our grandmas have already given us a lot of money — like, $5...and cookies...lots of cookies) 

We want those who we are creating for to help write the story of Tome and give them an outlet to impact a culture that needs Jesus now more than ever. If we can do that while also giving you access to some incredible gifts at the same time, that’s a bonus. 

Wait...did you say incredible gifts? Well, friend. I’m glad you asked. Cue the next section.

Tiers + Perks

This is the fun part. Remember how we said we’d have perks? Well, yeah, we got perks. If you want the full picture of everything you get access to when you join our campaign, head to our Kickstarter page.

SEE THE PERKS

For now, here’s a quick teaser of some really awesome stuff we’ll have for you:

  • Merch! (Tees, Hoodies, Hats, Jackets, Speedos...ok, kidding about that last one)
  • Membership to our Founder’s Club - oh you better believe it’s exclusive
  • Gift subscriptions to give to friends or family
  • Behind the scenes footage and meetings
  • Pick out the set, the name, and design direction of Season 3
  • Pick an A-list speaker
  • An iPhone 13
  • Visit the Tome set in person
  • Ugh, we don’t want to stop here, but the amount of other perks we’ve got would make the length of the Bible look silly. Head to the link above to see it all!

Seasons at Tome

Seasons at Tome are crucial to who we are, because there is nothing worse than recycled content. Seasons allow us to plan our content while keeping it new and fresh for you. To make sure that we never just park and produce comfortable content. That happens every four months. A new theme, a new foundational verse to drive the content, a new set, new speakers, new graphics, new branding, new marketing. All the (new) things.

And that’s why we need you. Help us create Season 3...like literally, you’ll be on set with us. It’s going to be rad and we’re going to have Biblical proportions of fun together.

Founder’s Club

This isn’t the hottest new club in New York (but maybe it should be). It’s not just a label on your account or a fancy title you can share with your friends. It’s an opportunity to join us on our journey and actually help create the content we produce for our next season.

We don’t have all the ideas. We think we have some good ones, but we’re smart enough to know that you probably have better ones. That’s why we want you to join The Founders Club. 

What’s so special about the Founder’s Club? A lot. Here’s a taste:

  • Early access to season content
  • The opportunity to participate in season creation
  • Behind-the-scenes access to filming sessions and set builds
  • Input on key decisions as they happen
  • A direct line to our product and care team for ideas and other input into what we make at Tome
  • Custom merch available to Founders
  • Invitations to exclusive events and celebrations
  • The ability for us to meet you and pick your brain

See what we mean? We’re serious about it! If you join us on this journey and become a founding member, we don’t think you’ll regret it. We know we won’t. 

Let’s build this together.

So, now what?

Anytime you give money to someone else, it’s a risk. We get that. You get that. But we don’t see ourselves as risky. We’ve been building the company's foundation for the last six months, and we felt that was an important step to take before asking you for your financial support. We’re already an established company that’s doing what we know we are supposed to do. But we want to do more of it, and do it better. We have already invested a ton of time, money, and energy, but we think it’s worth it. 

If you’ve gotten this far, chances are you do too. We are here on Kickstarter for one reason and one reason only: to create the best season of Tome ever. Your money will not go to waste. We will put it to use. If we don't hit the goal here, we will continue on. We will find a way to make it happen. But we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if you join us it will be better than if you didn’t. 

Will you join us?
